Default Rust on 2008 already

SO, i bought my 08 impreza 2.5i sedan used from a dealer in April 2012. Car was in perfect condition no rust at all. Two month ago i noticed rust around the wing and now rust on the passenger front door (See picture). Only 130 000 kilo on it. I live in canada and yes i know that winter are hard here but even my 05 Cavalier wasn't rusting like that after 5 year. I am the only one that is 2008 rust like that?

I've notice that the wing was not factory installed beacause the hole was drilled very poorly. The underside of the car is perfect no rust at all.

Here some picture.

That's probably your biggest culprit there. Subaru paint is thin, and if you get dings/dents/chips down to the metal, it won't take long for them to rust and spread. My 2012 had several rock chips rust less than 6 months into ownership, just the nature of the paint
