Unhappy 2012 f350 rust speckles in paint? Help

Guys I have spots or speckles of rust in my paint on my 2012 f350 with 4500 miles on it. Any suggestions on how to handle this? I planned on keeping my 2011 f350 forever well that ended in a buy back buy ford and this replacement is not starting off good. Please helphttp://s142.photobucket.com/albums/r117/fatheadon1/Snapbucket/?albumview=slideshow&track=share_email_album_view_ click

Try using a clay bar on it. Sometimes those rust specks are from the truck being transported. Clay bar should take care of it.

That's was what I was doing when I found it. There is 20 pr so spots on the truck at 60+ grand I don't feel rust is something I should be seein for 25 years. Am I just paranoid? Is this something that once I wax it I'll never see again?

Yup,
That's what most vehicles look like up here in the north after winter. We clay bar our vehicles twice a year and wax them so it doesn't get looking too bad.

Check on your window sticker to see if it was transported by train. (rail dust). Not rust from truck, but from the rails to train rollers contact. If so then it should be rust on top of the clear coat, unless it was hot and burnt in.

Environmental fall out is what ford calls it. Its stuff sticking to the paint....brake dust, stuff from the road etc. It comes off with a claybar.

Take it back to the dealer and have them look at it. Fords only warranties their paint for one year, so if you have any issues might be s good idea to go ahead and get them documented.

I had the same problem from train transport, I took the truck back to the dealer and they had their detail shop clay bar and wax it for me. No charge.

I had the same thing happen to a brand new Chevy Tahoe a few years back. Same as the poster above, the dealership removed it free of charge. It's just rail dust, no big deal, your truck is fine.
