yes or no? if not why?
I just doubt it is a common problem. Cars should be made in such a way that they do not rust in such a short period of time. If it is rusting, I would take it back to the dealer and demand that they fix it.I've seen new cars rust before.
My parents have a Mazda 3. It's only a year old and there is rust on some of the suspension components. It happened right after winter.
Sounds like when they try to make you buy the extra warranty at Future Shop or Best Buy when you buy a computer or other electronic device.Totally anecdotal, but I've always heard that rustproofing is one of those dealer add-on's that should be avoided as it's just a way for them to make extra money.
Is there any common wisdom on the islands about what the salt air does to your vehicles? I remember reading somewhere that owners in locales like yours need to wash your vehicles frequently to prevent salt corrosion. The paint job on Pathfinders is terrible to begin with, so I would think that this would be doubly important for Pathfinder owners in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, etc.I have a 2014 PF bought in October 2014. I was looking around my PF and found little rust spots. I rubbed my finger over to see if there was a nick in the paint and nothing. Has this happened to anyone else and any ideas what I should do? will the dealership cover this. being that my PF is not even a year old, I can't already have rust on it can I?
