Default 2013 Lexus RX premature rust. It is shocking

Hi,
I am on the market looking for pre owned 2013 RX350. For last two weeks I looked at 5 different RXs and they all had the same type of rust. It was on the rear chassis where the alignment bolts are. It looked ugly on all of the cars that I checked. Is Lexus doing something about it?
Does it cover replacing parts if they are corroded prematurely that fast? All the vehicles that I looked are still on full manuf. warranty. I understand that here in MA state the salt and snow mix cause the rust faster then comparing it with Florida or Arizona., but it should not be that fast. It is just two years old cars.
I am interested if anyone had this rust issue fixed with the Lexus. Please let me know.

Any bolt that have been loosen or turned with a socket will be prone to rust in any salt infested state. So it's not really shocking at all.
