I guess its worth a try tho you wouldn't expect a five year old car to be rusting
It is an anti corrosion warranty. I don't think it needs to perforate, that was the old anti perforation warranty. A waste of time, as by the time it has perforated the metal it is well past respray and corrosion can spread and look bad for years before it goes through the metal. The manufacturers knew this, so were happy to offer that type of warranty as they were unlikely to have to honour it within the timescale they covered.
