    Has anyone had issues with their MS rusting in any of the door and hatch sills? My car was delivered on Tuesday, with a minor bumper issue noted. After driving it in the rain all my door sills, frunk and trunk sills have 6-8 spots of rust on each. One exterior spot is rusting as well.

    Of course I am notifying Tesla today but curious if anyone has had this issue before.

    The Model S has a few steel parts, but the body is all aluminum. I believe the hinge end of the door has some steel in it, but most of the door is steel.

    I would double check and make sure it's actually rust. I think odds are high it's something else. You may have some schmutz in there somewhere that just happens to be rust colored.
