I had the exact same problem with my car. I made a thread about it. You can find it in my profile. You need to clay bar it, then keep wax on it all the time. Another important thing is to ALWAYS dry every single door sill completely after washing. After following those steps, I didn't have that problem. Also, please do not acid wash it, it is VERY bad for your cars paint.

After every rain also? That's a bit much to expect.
No, just after every wash. Well thats what you have to do to get rid of it and keep it from coming back. If you dont want to go through the effort, then just deal with the rust.
