08 Paint problems?

I've got a silver 08 Unlimited, used with 16,000 miles on it a month ago, and I gave it a good washing for the first time today. There are tiny rust spots on almost every panel on the jeep. I was wondering if there were any problems with the paint for this year or what. I got is from a used car dealer but I'm not sure if there are recalls or the warranty will help. Any ideas? Thanks

they could be from rocks being kicked up or smacking into the jeep while driving. i haven't heard of any one else having problems like this, but if you feel like this is an issue talk to the dealer and see what they'll do.

Could be rail dust, try a clay bar on it.
