    Here’s the latest trend up here in the rust belt. I’m thinking of having my van done.

        Over the past 20+ years, ALL domestic car makers dip the car bodies in a rust prohibitive liquid.
        I believe the rust protection is as good as it’s gonna get, right out of the gate. Whatever protection package the dealer offers is just “fluff”.
        I may be wrong, but I personally see the undercoating packages that go on in the dealership. I wouldn’t pay for it.
        I remember from working in new car dealerships for 20 years in the service dept the undercoating & the rustproofing that gets sprayed into the body is waaaaay overpriced & does not do much good at all.

          Yeah, the brine solution on the roads is really bad. So would this be a reason to lease a car/truck instead of buying it? Just get rid of it in a few years before the rust becomes a problem and get another one?

            I used fluid film on my truck last fall. After 2 good rains more than half of it was washed off. Needless to say I was disappointed. They use a combination of treatments around here. They spray the roads with the brine before a storm, then use a salt/sand mix. They even use loose gravel sometimes. I’ve seen 2” rocks on the roads .

              These vehicles have to be sacrificial to use in the winter months.

                "Winter beaters" are common in MI..... the nice car for the non-salted roads weeks and a beater for the DD during salty roads.....
