    Rust on 2001 A4 near windows

    I went to a terrible car supermarket at the weekend (cargiant) and saw some awful examples of audi A4's. Now many had rust on the black metal bits near the rear windows and also the middle pillar.
    Is this covered under warranty? Surely a 3yr old audi wouln't rust?
    I also saw on many of the audi's that the metal part of the windscreen wiper had rusted quite badly!
    Anyone heard of this and whether its covered under audi's anti corrosion warranty?

    Regards

    Jonathon

    Mine are pretty bad on the wiper arms, but they cost 19.00 from the main dealer, the whole arm assembly is cheaper than the wiper blades lol

    As for other rust, yes it should be covered under warranty as long as its been looked after, and its not stone chipped etc.

    Audi's dont rust in general, it's why you see old ones on the road still, they are galvanised
