Well, I guess u want to know how to fix it? Sand down the roof, if rust is bad, use a rough sandpaper to start, work your way down to fine, or better yet , extra fine. Clean off all dust, spray w/ primer, let dry (time needed , check can), spray light coats of paint, allowing each to dry before spraying the next. Too heavy a coating will make the paint run and look like cr_ap, so be patient and do several light coats for best results. Make sure u do it in a clean area (dust, bugs, dirt, rain, dew, will mess up the quality of the job, so do it when it's dry, not dusty, and make sure conditions remain that way til it dries. Good luck!

Rust bubbles on roof

The cost will cover the removal of the old one, fitting of the new one and a colour matched paint job. (The most expensive part as it involves a lot of labour) If the rust has penetrated the roof then this is only one of the repair options. You could have it patch repaired but the paint job will still make it expensive. If the rust hasn't penetrated, you could rub it down, treat the rust and then paint ( Paint costs will be lower as it will be a chip repair paint job.)

Pontiac Vibe roof rust perforations

We also have a 2006 Pontiac Vibe and have had not had any problems with the paint or rust. If you bought it new, take it back to the dealership and find out why this has happened. Otherwise, take it to 3 to 5 body shops and get estimates as to the cost of repair. If you plan to keep the car, get the best possible job done, but if you plan to sell it in the next few years then just do enough to get by.
