Hyundai Atos / endless rust problems

1 South Africa

Please I do hope that somebody can assist me as I am now at my wits end. I purchased a hyundai atos 1.1 automatic in december 2009. The windsreenwipers rusted after 4 month, 8 month after that they replaced them, now they are rusted again, they had to replace the hood latch because of rust, today they had to replace the oilfilter because of rust there was a hole and it was leaking oil, surely a car 3years old brand new out of the box should not rust like that, unfortunately I do not have any photos at the moment, but trust me everything in that engine compartment has rust, so by the time I have the car paid of in 2 years there is nothing left. Also, which I was not aware of, I lost my service plan because I did not take the car in for a service last year. The reason I never took it in was I had not clocked the 15000 km. Now i'm beeing told if I drive less km I should have brought it in yearly i. E. Last year this year, because I did not take it in last year I forfeited the service plan and now have to pay rand 1500.00, surely that is wrong, I really was not aware of the matter. Could hyundai not be little more forthcoming? And why do I have such a rust problem. Yes I do live by the sea, but im not the only one who lives by the sea yet my car looks the worst for wear and the other cars in my complex are much older. What am I to do. I was unemployed for 1 year just only recently got a job closer to home, and now that. Please, please assist
