Rear wheel panel rust. Every car of this year has the same rust problem at the same place.

Update from Mar 7, 2018: Josh P.: I'm looking for a solution, but for the moment I just can see to paint over it, touch up.

Update from Mar 8, 2018: Anonymous A: thanks for the suggestions of Krown & Rust Check treatment and also to keep the carpets dry inside the car especially during winter. The Penetr-Oil is a rust proofing treatment that I used to apply, but the rust of the rear wheel panel was just too advance.

Update from Mar 9, 2018: Kamm Q.: to regularly wash the underside of the car, with emphasis on the wheel well lip, is a good idea. Do you put a product in the interior of the car wing ?
