Went out to polish my car the other day and was horrified to find some very crusty paint with rust coming through on the drivers door, immediately below the mirror. Have I just been unlucky or is this a common spot for corrosion? I'll need to sort it sooner rather than later but I was surprised that a modern car would have rust appearing on a 2008.

Check out your front subframe as they are prone to rust, several here have had them cleaned up and painted.

Probably a poor repair in that location. Maybe a new door skin that was put on without proper rust treatment.
