    Spring cleaning has revealed 3 of the 4 doors starting to rust on bottom door edges

    2016 CLA has 37,000 miles (60,000KM), is still under warranty and under 3 years old (delivery July 2016).

    The car is in impeccable condition with no sign of abuse. Will dealer fix this under warranty?

    Gotta read your warrantee carefully. Usually rusting through is the only thing that is covered. But it sure is worth making a stink about unless you garage the car in a salt dome

    Seems different for Canadian customers. Mercedes Benz Canadian Warranty:

    New Car Warranty

    When you purchase a brand-new Mercedes-Benz model from a Canadian dealership, you get extensive coverage for a variety of services. You can expect the following:

    Basic Warranty: Four years or 80,000 km
    Wear and Tear Period: Two years or 40,000 km
    Adjustment Period: One year of 20,000 km
    Emission System: Two years or 40,000 km
    Certain Emission Parts: Eight years or 130,000 km
    Surface Corrosion: Four years or 80,000 km
    Perforation Corrosion: Five years and unlimited km
    Roadside Assistance: Four years and unlimited km

    You seem to have a good case - keep your positive attitude, convince your Service Advisor and be prepared to appeal to the dealership owner.
    Come back here with an update.
