Why the fuck do you expect the dealer to do anything about that? In what world do you live in? You have 40 thousand miles on a car that has seen salt and snow.
What exactly do your intend to say to the dealership?
Let's roleplay. I'll be the service manager.
Me: "Greetings, former customer of a car we hate to work on; how may I help you?"
God hates all of you

I don't garage mine at all, live in the midwest, and I don't have that much rust underneath. Bummer! I'd have to guess that you drove through a puddle of something industrial and nasty. I have over 45,000 miles, but I try to use the F-250 Crewcab 4x4 if the snow is more than 2" deep so I don't get the frozen chunks of snow from other car's wheel wells into my FMIC.
