I bought 09 Axela few days ago and just found some rust just above the brake pedal.
Some reckon it is not even the factory welding, what you think guys?

I don't know how I missed it before buying the car but now I took it back to the dealer to check.

I would say that unless your windscreen is leaking then this is probably caused by condensation during the colder months or possibly during transit due to temperature changes.

I would simply put some rust killing primer on it and then paint it black. Use a brush otherwise you will make a mess if you spray it. It looks like its only surface rust so the chances of it letting go are very slim, most internal bracing in cars isn't painted to save time and costs. 

If your really worried see your mechanic.
