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…

Thx for the reply, if I just discovered that rust few days after I bought this car from infinity dealer, what can I do legally, it’s CPO 2019 qx60
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.
