Not all wire is created equal. Nor are fittings. If you aren't in an area where there is a lot of pollution, say downwind from a power plant or something. The chances are that the wire is of lesser quality than that which was replace.
Having said that, it is not unusual to see signs of surface corrosion within two months, especially in southern climates.
