Hmm. This doesn't sound good at all. Mine is also a 2004 54, but has done only 16500 miles. I took it through the car wash today and then had a close inspection. No rust anywhere, and especially where you have problems. Any chance of pics?

Hi all when i got mine last year i had a real good look under neath and around the sill area. The drivers side sill was peppered with chips because the underseal was missing I then looked around the rear arches and i had chips around there as well. Out came the waxoyl and touch up stick. I will be checking again this year and reapplyingif necessary.

Oh yes! my 54 plate had quite a bit of corrosion on the front of the rear wheel arches. paint gone from the edges. I have traded it but am watching my newer one closely, nothing yet..............

yep just had another close up look and it isnt rust but its lots of stone chips!!
my old passat used to have a plastic coating over this same area to stop it chipping the paint!!

will try and get a touch up stick and get em sorted !!

ive also got photos and will post them up tomorrow.
