Very sketchy…. What did the dealer say about this?

Looks like the previous owner had water problems, maybe a clogged sunroof, left door open during a rainy night, flood, etc…

Nope...that vehicle has been flooded, or had water pooling in the floor boards that created a humid environment. I have a 2014, and my seats still look new underneath.

My guess is the dealer will claim nothing is wrong since (I’m assuming) seats are safe and it’s only surface rust. It’s too bad they didn’t do a proper CPO inspection, find and call this out or replace seat hardware.

Is rust under all seats, or just the front driver? This will help define the extent of rust. If it’s on more, you should pull back some carpeting in case it hiding other issues. Or have the dealer “prove” it’s not a larger issue.

That is very common and normal. IF these seat frame brackets were uniformly coated in thick rust, then you might want to see if the car was flooded by sea water.

The cause is salt air, from coastal exposure. These seat frame brackets are very commonly not painted, and almost never fail from rust. If it bothers you, spray some rust preventative coating on them, very lightly ! the stuff I use creeps on it's own so a little goes a long way.

I certainly agree with Rooster here because my car had a terrible roof/windshield leak that I did not know about for nearly a year. Every raw bracket in my car is covered in surface rust. I bought a scotch bright pad, cheese cloth and a can of Rust Neutralizer and plan on coating every bracket I can access. I've scuffed about 80% of the brackets so far and have been surprised to see a mix of painted and raw brackets. Why are the brackets under the rear, driver's side cargo area painted, but the same brackets on the passenger side rear unpainted? Strange....

Yah, I bought a scotch bright pad, cheese cloth and a can of Loctite's Rust Neutralizer. I'm currently scuffing a bracket at a time and have been surprised to see a mix of painted and unpainted brackets. While brackets on the driver's side of the car in the rear cargo area are painted, those on the passenger side rear cargo area are unpainted. Seems strange to me...
