Thanks guys for your replies. @CRACING - only if I read your post on time. [sad]

The damage is done. Took the car to my trusted guy and he showed me there's nothing left. His fingers were poking the metal like it was rubber. The metal part which holds the wiper motor is totally gone. New one will cost 2500rs.

He will remove the entire dashboard , weld parts , apply anti rust treatment , paint it.
Will take a week to get the car back.

Sorry for your car. That is really very bad rotting. Hopefully you will get it back properly painted again. Now it all depends on how good the workmanship is??


My personal opinion:
It's hyundai's fault. It's not your fault. Customer is not supposed to all the time keep looking for rust like a CIA agent. And that too in hard to see and difficult areas like cowl.
It's the poor paint quality of hyundai to be blamed. Not all cars rust like this. And certainly not so badly.

Yes, Hyundai's are prone to rust. Once again I am stressing cold weld is good instead of gas welding.

Oops, that's more than superficial. Luckily, I tend to open the panels once in a blue moon, no harm found so far. Never seen this much decay in such a new car [surprise]

@mayankdixit - I got the windshield replaced In June 2020 and I am sure guy would have pointed out if there was rusting near the cowl. Maybe it's indeed hyundai but there was a lot of dirt and leaves so can't really blame them 100%.

@Suryaputhra - I asked the FNG and they don't do cold weld and I have already given the car to them. Approx expenditure is 10k. 4000rs labor for removal + install of dashboard plus ac service , 2500rs for the part and 3500rs for the repair work and paint. And the guy did a good job previously also. He's 18kms away from my home.
Also the part where he will do the weld costs 4700rs but it will take a lot of time since the whole part itself is welded everywhere so best option was to repair this only.

@deville_56 - I too was shocked to see this since I maintain the cars very well. I have to check the doors also since two speakers are not working and I will check for rust also.
