Brera S 3.2 V6 Surface Rust Underneath

Ive just been told that my 2008 58 Brera S 3.2 has got quite a lot of surface rust underneath the car - does anyone know if i should be worried by this or not?

The car has only done 10k in 3 years!

I was also told that the manufacturers warranty doesnt cover this (im guessing as its only surface rust and not eaten through the metal - yet!)

Anyone with any advice and whether i should have it sorted out, would be really appreciated!

My indie told me the same on the 147 (8 years old) and wanted 250 to sort it. I rented a ramp and it took me less than an hour to grind off a tiny amount of surface rust, treat it and waxoyl over it. Cost me 35 including materials.

On the floorpan? No. On the cross members, yes.
