Yeh itd be nice .
I think that kind of thing is only covered by a 3 year warranty,Im not even sure if it extends to the more recent 4 year warranty(that might only be for moving parts n electrics).
The 12 year warranty,mercs have a 30 year one I think,covers something like .The paint wont fall off the body panels,as long as there is no physical damage to it from the front , if rust is coming thru from behind, forget it.
Wheelarches,understandably, any metal bits that are exposed to stones,winter salts and the crud buildup ,I dont know whats the answer there.
My meg has nice sharp metal lips turned in underneath.With big n wide wheels especially at the front(on mine) its not so good
Thats my rough understanding of the 12 year thing.If its better than that..great!

Even the slightest sign of prior damage + a lack of inspection / repair by Renault i.e.. not noted on your service documents & I'm afraid you've got a better chance of meeting up with God. Yesterday!!!

That's an abridged version of my prior experience from 3 Renaults back.
