Could be iron deposits from transportation. If others agree you can use something like iron-X to remove them.

Iron-X will clear it up. You will get the yellow iron spots mostly from the front brakes. Shows mostly on front doors and rear hatch. Use it every time you wash.

It's iron deposits from being transported on rail cars. When I worked at a dealership the make ready guys would use clay bar to clean em up. (like the others say) Looks like your LR store missed yours when it came in. They might even take care of it for you if you mention it to them. Hope that helps. :)

I mean Do you guys have the same problem too? Because I only had this car for 3 month till end of August with 1400 miles.

Should I contact the dealer? Or just a buy the clay bar from Amazon?

I just feel like with that much money I spent it shouldn't have something this happened so quick.

Thank you guys!!

It is an issue ON the paint, not IN the paint. It is the result of metallic dust that settles on cars during transport. It really is not that uncommon nor is it any big deal. Most of the time these particulates simply wash off during PDI. It is not an issue of how much money you spent or the time it took for the spots to show. You can either bring up it up with the dealer or take an hour and handle it your self. It;s all a matter of how much you time is worth to you to sit at the dealer while they clean your car or the time it takes to drop it off, get a loaner, return the loaner and retrieve your car.

The spots are on the surface, not in the paint. I have had 5 white vehicles, it's due to the high levels of iron, calcium and salt in the water , and salt that is put on the roads in the northeast. Do not use ironx or such wheel cleaners on the clear coat it will ruin the paint finish. Wash your vehicle really good and then quick detail spray and clay bar the entire vehicle 2-3 times a year, and have it detailed professionally once a year at least.

I'd have the dealer do it. Spend this much money on it, why should you be doing it? Just my $.02.

It sucks. There, the worst is over. Dealers are cheap and do not pay attention to the details. Hell my dealer is still telling people nothing can be done about the swirled up black pillars on the side (get ready for that one btw). I just clayed my car and found iron deposits all over my fuji white car. I got a clay bay from Adam's Polishes. Honestly any good clay bar will do the trick though. I'd do it yourself though, that way you get to know your car. Good news is once you clay the car it will be incredibly smooth to the touch and the paint will really pop with all that contamination off (there's a ton more on the paint that you can't even see that the clay will take care of. I suggest NOT having the dealer will do it as honestly they will probably just mess up it up more. They'll be dropping the bar and using it which which scratch and swirl the paint, or go over it half assed and miss a bunch, or use a very used clay bar and swirl the paint/miss half of it. Do it yourself or have a pro detailer do a full correction/seal. That way at least you know it was done right and the car is ready for anything. Before winter is also a great time to be thinking about these things.

Hello

So after used the clay bar like you said it goes away, the thing is it come back again and again. Does it happen same to your Fuji white? My neighbor thinks I'm crazy always washing the car.

I went to the dealer today, the service manger told me, all he can do is give me a detail wash and nothing else he could do.

Since I was in the dealership today , so I check 2 Fiji white RRS turns out all of them has the brown tiny dot even on the brand new cars.

I have the same issue on my Fuji white vehicle. It's an issue in the Northeast (I live in NYC)--due to the levels of salt, iron and calcium in the water. I do not garage park--which I think makes the situation worse. Whenever I get my vehicle detailed, the spots come out, but it is very annoying.

Buy a bottle of Klasse All-In-One Cleaner Wax (Red Bottle) and it will get these marks off of the surface of the paint. Washing alone it will not do it. Use a microfiber pad to apply the cleaner wax and microfiber towel to remove.

Iron-X will not pull this stuff off. It's more for the small surface particles. What you need is a cleaner wax. I would recommend using a more aggressive clay bar on those areas before applying cleaner wax. You might want to talk to some of the experts over at AutoGeek.

Here's what I do:

1) Wash thoroughly with Dawn Soap (blue) - yes Dawn Soap.
2) Clay Bar
3) Klasse All-In-One Cleaner Wax (as many coats as needed to get out marks/spots)
4) Klasse Sealant
5) Pinnacle Carnuba Wax
6) Pinnacle Carnuba Spray Finishing Wax

Any white car I've ever owned has these, I believe it's from hot metal particles (brakes or exhaust) a good iron remover and/or clay bar has always resolved the issue for me.
