While cleaning my GT at the weekend, I noticed a small area at the bottom of the front wheel arch (inside edge) where the paint has flaked off.
Upon closer inspection, this seems to extend to a small patch on the underside of the sill and is showing signs of corrosion.
I checked the other side of the car, and sure enough both driver and passenger sides seem to be affected.
Is this a common problem area? I am guessing its an area susecptable to chips from the wheels.
My car is an 06, with its 3rd birthday in June, and has convered 24K miles only. Unfortunaly I only aquired the car recently (from uninterested independant), and have not yet transfered the 3rd year waranty (actually didnt think it worth it for few remaining months).
Where do I stand with this? I am likely to be able to claim from anti corrosion waranty if I were to transfer it? Or is it likely to be classed as stone chip damage?
I am keen to get this looked at one way or another. Anyone else experienced this, and can share experience. Not going to attempt this myself even though its not in a visible area, so will be going to professional body shop if I have to.
