Just bought a honda

just bought a 2005 FRV from a main dealer. great car, but have noticed a few things:

- front tyres close to limits, not sure how this got through mot/service without an advisory
- dull scraping noise from front when braking at slow speed, brakes worn?
- small spot of rust on offside rear passanger door sill

should i expect the dealer to put things right? i'm only week one into the 30 day return period

advice please

I have a 57 plate CTR and the cars not even 2 years old, and have notice surface rust on the sides of both doors. The surface rust has appeared where the outer door schim joins the actual door, above the locks.

The paint is too thin on these cars, its a joke. My previuos car was a Peg 306 which I kept for 9 years, and there was no rust on that when I sold it. Come on Honda, what are you playing at??? Honda will get a bad name like what FIAT had in the 80s as being a rust bucket!

Out of all the cars that I've owned over 21 years, Honda has the worst paint job as quality goes!
