I have rust spots on my hood. The Palisade is not a year old. I also purchased the Polysteel protection. Guess it's not working. How do I get rid of rust? What should I say to the dealership?
Just tell them there is rust and ask to fix it under warranty. There should be 3yr/36000 mile paint warranty and 7yr/ Unlimited miles Anti-Perforation warrantyI have rust spots on my hood.

Thanks for the helpful feedback. I am going to show the dealership first and then go from there.I haven’t taken a magnet to the hood to see if it is aluminum.
If that were my car, I would take a little rubbing compound and clean out what looks to be rust. You could try an iron remover too to see if that breaks down that orange spot. Eagle One Black & Plasti-Coat Wheel cleaner is an iron removing spray that is safe for paint. I discovered it on a YouTube video and just used it on my 2011 Sonata and it definitely helped removed fallout.
So I would clean out the orange spot and then fill it in with touch up paint. It’s a decent sized chip so be patient and do several thin coats to fill it in slowly for best results.
not sure a dealer would do much for you at this point since it’s not rusted through (perforation warranty), but you could try that route too.Some dealer service centers are more helpful than others as we know.
you can consider getting paint protection film too, once your chip is fixed. Modern paints are brittle and thin so you will get chips on the hood and fenders. I had my front end wrapped in PPF because I hate paint chips.
I had the same issue with my Pearl White Kia Sorento. I too was told it was fallout and that it's more noticeable on the white or light colored vehicles. I used the iron remover spray and it worked well.It could also be industrial fallout that has stuck to your paint. Look into an iron remover spray and clay bar.
