'through corrosion' is an interesting term - I used a Ford Ka with the classic rust around the filler cap.I'm no expert, but would say that would be rejected as 'through corrosion', rather surface rust creeping out from the lip area under the plastic filler cap assembly.
The precise terms and wording used can be a nightmare to interpret.
And VW will doubtless insist on owners paying their service prices when cars have sunk to a modest value in order to preserve the 12 year warranty.
The fact is, if this Up is rusting as stated its bad news whatever the warranty says - especially from VW.

I'm assuming many Up owners, especially those who view their cars as a long-term vehicle, will be paying close attention here (count me among them).It would be good to hear updates of how this proceeds and also, if possible to see some photos - so the rest of us who don't have easy access to ramps know what to look out for. I'm guessing it won't be the easiest thing to see without at least taking the wheel off?
