    We noticed a strange rust like stain in the corner of the headliner right in front on the passenger side.

    There's little reason for it from the outside and I worry it is coming from inside.

    Has anyone ever heard of something like this?

    Water leak? Maybe windshield gasket/seal?

    Looks like somebody put something behind the sun visor that bled/leaked onto the headliner. Have you looked behind the visor? Likely not rust. Try some "dry cleaning" fluid, or Goof Off (solvent) to clean it.

    Yes it does look like that could be something except there is nothing on the visor itself.

    A not-completely-clean hand used to absent-mindedly fold the visor?

    Somebody swatted a recently-fed mosquito in there?
