    Default Rust on rear hatch

    Picked up my 05 burb today. The dealer fixed some surface rust/bubbling that was forming all along the bottom inside of the rear hatch. I want to make sure whatever caused it is fixed as well. I presume this is a common problem. What's the source?

    check all of the moldings amd seals on the hatch, you probably have moisture getting in somewhere. but if they salt or mag chloride the roads there in the winter it doesn't help
