Under side rust...

I found this when I was checking out my rotors, on the left side about middle of my 07 compass limited. I don't see any reference to this on the service manual. It looks like the coat of black 'paint' was torn...

Is this a problem I should fix? Or is it something very common?

Thanks

I won't say it's uncommon. It's hard to say how it may have happened. You may have kicked something up from the road or ?? By law, all body parts are zinc plated to prevent rust so I would simply wire brush it until it was clean, prep it with some rust remover, coat with zinc paint and then some black or spray on undercoating.
