Correct. A relative of mine has a Chrysler Town & Country Minivan. It had a rust spot on the rear wheelwell. Chrysler said that, "Unless there is a hole, there's nothing we can do about a rust spot". After months of arguing, my cousin used a drill bit---Chrysler now sees a hole---the paint has since been fixed.
