    It's always gonna be a funny one mate as then can blame it anything.

    As long as the rust is under the paint and the paint is clean, free of stone chips and does not look like somebody has touched the paint up then yes it should be covered. But like I say, VX are funny at the best of times.

          think the problem lies with the bumper looks as if it comes loose then rubs against the wing

            It's a common fault with Corsa and Astra VXRs.

            Seems like with all common faults Vauxhall would rather turn a blind eye to most then repair and improve. Or that's how it seems.

                It's due to the bumpers sitting to tight to the bodywork. What they really need to do is relax the bumpers a little bit. Another option would be to put some kind of rubber seal in the seam...obviously so it looks ok but does it's job and stops the rubbing. Also, vxl should be more generous with their paint tbh, the paintwork seems a bit thin and it dosent help as paint is always thinner on edges and swags lines so it's extra thin in vxl's case.

                Get it booked in for them to have a look tho. The warranty man will have to come out and check all panels with a paint gauge so he will tell if it's ever been painted....and if it has you will be fobbed off

                  its a common fault on a lot of cars. i work for a mercedes bodyshop n it happens on them all the time. the guidelines for merc are **** so in a way vx aint as bad as people say. if they say no threaten to take them to trading standards. that always seems to do the trick!

                      Yep, you have more chance of claiming as yours is in warranty. It's 7 years for rust anyway so asling as they don't try saying yours has been painted then your fine. Get it booked in before it gets worse!
