Angry Surface Rust Bubbles

My 2013 Crosstour has 90,000 miles. I am the original owner.
At 85,500 miles I had some surface rust appearing on the driver side rear panel above the wheel well. I had the rust repaired and repainted, looked great. I recently noticed that paint bubbled have reappeared and fear that the metal in this area is starting to oxidize from beneath and suspect some major rusting to appear which will decrease the value of my CT.
Has anyone experienced this or any rust issues?

Hi Roy. This sure sounds like rust from the other side of the panel. I'm wondering if the folks who made the prior repair removed the wheel well liner and took car of things on the inside. If they didn't, no amount of repair from the outside will permanently fix the damage.
If you're like me and want to keep your Crosstour "forever" then making this repair properly is well worth the expense. Let us know how you make out.

Most credible auto body shops will give you a lifetime warranty on their work. I would contact them and ask them what your next step should be.

An update: Honda agreed to investigate this further and their authorized body shop replaced the rear quarter panel. Found that sealant was missing and the panel was not caulked. Body shop did a great job. Hopefully this is resolved.

Sorry to hear that.....original repair probably didn't get all the rust prior to repair/repaint

A few of us on one of the facebook forums have the same problem but with water coming in. The water was coming in around the wheel well and of course that was causing the rust. The body shop did a great job on my Crosstour and no more water is coming in. Some people were thinking the fuel door drain had something to do with it but not with mine.
