What would you recommend I use to knock this stuff down? Read some about Rust Bullet, but does anyone have any other thoughts to get rid of it without major bodywork/paint, etc. This is the only rust I have and don't want it to get out of hand!
Thanks in advance !

Get it all gone, including the rust on the same panel, just under the bumper cover.
Then go over to the passenger's side of the car, jack up the back four inches, and remove the plastic "protector" from the fuel filler neck. Mine was retaining about half a liter of gasoline-soaked mud and salt. Then replace the protector, so the filler neck isn't abraded by stones the tire kicks up.
Check for rust spots forming along the bottom of the doors, on the inside. Coat the region in gear oil.
If you have a roof rack, check for and contain any rust on the roof.
As with any car's hood, the front is pelted by stones, causing dings and chips.
And that covers the major problem areas I've seen on Legacies. Keep on top of it. The Legacy is worth it.
