Rust proofting

Is it worth it to rust proof my 2013 frs? I do live in canada. Me and a friend were having that debate and he claims that for the first 3-5 years, it's not necessary.

If yes and you do live in Canada, where did you or recommend I get my car rust proofed

Just got my rust proof yesterday at Krown.

Well its really depends, is your car on lease or finance. you planning to keep it down the road??

As for me I'm going to drive it till the wheel fall off so I do not want rust later down the road.

119 plus taxes was how much it cost. Do it once a year and you get their life time rust free warranty.

compare to how much money we spend on mods, 119 is not that big of a deal.

edited: I live in ontario as well.

I hear these cars are rust buckets....so I'd suggest to not even drive the car in the winter if you plan to keep it long time since Ontario loves salt.

But if your keen to drive it year round or don't have the opportunity to store it than yes. Rust proof this car.

While were on the subject, should I rust proof my 2017 Accord? Anybody know how they handle rust? I traded my 2014 in recently but it seemed to be clean without any signs of rust.

Where did you hear they are "rust buckets"? I am rust free after two winters and expect it to last for years. The day of rusting away in 3 or 4 years is long gone (except for Mazdas for some reason). Walk through any parking lot and see just how few 10 or 15 year old cars have rust on them. I remember a day when a 5 year old car would be literally falling apart (looking at you 80s Fords and Dodges) but now there ay be a tiny speck in a seam someplace and people freak out.
The value of rustproofing is questionable these days but as Fuji said for $119 it sure can't hurt.

I had them spray the "rust proofing" in my car (just goes into all the seams and such) I doubt its necessary with modern cars though. In fact general motors says in the warranty booklet you get with all new vehicles that aftermarket rust proofing is not necessary anymore.... even though we sell it daily to people lol

Interesting, because the only rust I have on my car, is on uncoated bolts and where I have paint chips

Funny that you take one anecdotal case as gospel, especially since you have zero personal experience with winter driving your car.

Having worked at a krown when I was younger, you need to do it every year for it to work. You're kinda boned now. Best advice I can give is to use wd-40 on all those holes (it'll displace water) or get a corrosion inhibitor. You can also use a nail polish clear coat on those holes, and that'll work to seriously slow it down too.

Wow that guy is a true douche in so many ways! So because the car has stamped or cast steel components it will become a rust bucket "eventually"?


LOL NEWSFLASH: All cars are made with stamped or cast steel components. Every freaking one of them! What did he expect to find under there titanium and carbon fiber?


This is the sort of bullshit misinformation which is spread so easily now. Ya the guy can express an opinion but he states his as undeniable fact yet most of what he says is pure crap. Dude in the video if you are on here (probably one of the big whiners) step up and let's discuss your "facts".


Come on Imp I know you are better than to fall for that stuff!

Where i live, we have high humidity, heat, and salty water, and i have yet to see signs of rust in the past 4 years. I don't have harsh winters as i live in a more tropical area, but my car is holding up very well.
