Unhappy Wiring corrosion issues

Hi all,
I have had to return my 2016 DS4 to the dealers 3 times since buying less than 6 months ago due to wiring issues. The first time I returned it, the engine management light came on saying serious fault, they replaced the alternator and negative cable. This didn't solve the problem, the second time, they repaired "broken wiring" and topped up the battery - all ok for 2 months and then same problem again. Third return and they again repaired broken wiring. This time they tell me I'm really lucky that the goodwill of DS4 means they won't be charging me for the repair, as this isn't covered under the super duper 2 year warranty (obviously not worth the paper its written on). Has anyone else had these issues, there is obviously some problem with water ingress getting into the wiring looms? Seriously considering getting rid of it before it happens again.

Strange, the alternator and battery wiring is usually exposed since it's in the engine bay.

Do you live by the seafront? or missing the undertray?
