Default warranty on paint job??

I've got a 2009 Veracruz. The paint job seems really weak - I've got lots of small rust spots (some pinprick-size, some bigger) all over the car and it's only been a couple of years (and I use a touchless carwash etc.). Is this normal, a known problem, etc.? Is this something the Hyundai warranty covers??
