There's a rust warranty of 5 or 6 years.

Automatic Car Washes and the coin operated kinds use harsh chemicals that can hurt the clear coat on your car. Add to it the brushes from automatic and coin operated kinds and you are basically using sand paper on your finish. That is why you see cars with hair line swirl marks from these processes. The best option is the touchless car washes, however, they still use some strong chemicals and can hurt the clear coat. During the winter I simply take my car to a touchless wash, but when I get home, I go over it with a quick detailer.

Just baffles me that in 9 months has dozens of tiny rust spots. Especially on white paint super noticeable

I use Meguiar's Quck Detailer, with a good quality microfiber cloth.

Surely it's got to be better than leaving salt on though? Right

Taking it to a touchless car wash is your best bet, especially during the winter. I do this myself, but use the detailer after to protect the finish. For the best option during the winter time or if you don't want to wash your car yourself is to take it to a professional detailer. Some detailers offer hand washing for about $20 to $30. Some are mobile and will come to your place of work and give your car a proper wash and wax. Do a google search for your area, search for car detailer (your area).
