Complaint - Seats

UNDER THE FRONT DRIVER AND PASSENGER SEAT, THERE IS SURFACE RUST ON THE METAL FRAME AND COMPONENTS. RUST IS NOT LIKELY SERIOUS, BUT CAN STAIN ANYTHING IT TOUCHES, AND MAY PROGRESS TO MORE SERIOUS RUST, CAUSING PARTS TO BREAK DOWN, OR MALFUNCTION. DEALER I BOUGHT VEHICLE FROM CALLED FORD SERVICE CENTER, AND FORD IS AWARE OF THE PROBLEM, AND AS THEY DEEM IT "NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR" IT IS NOT COVERED BY ANY SORT OF WARRANTY. NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR??? RUST INSIDE A NEW VEHICLE??? CHECKED OTHER EXPLORERS ON THE LOT AND THEY ALSO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.
