It may be either 6 years or 12 years - in any case, age is not an issue.
It all depends on whether the corrosion originated from inside the panel (perforation) or from an external factor (i.e. stonechip).
I would advise getting it inspected at the earliest opportunity to find out either way - no point in letting it get worse.
Hope that helps (even just a wee bit)
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
