Hi!

Went and checked out a 2008 the other day. Has over 175K miles on the odometer. Asking price is $8300. Since I’m in the north, rust is inevitable on decade old vehicles...snapped these pics of the under carriage and wheel wells. If I were to go ahead, I would bring it to my mechanic first...but was looking for thoughts on the undercarriage etc before I took that step. Thanks!

Personally I wouldnt want that much rust BUT if the price is right for you, it’s not that bad. Ideally you’d perform some work:

1. What will you do to treat the rust that’s there?
2. What will you do to prevent more rust in the future?

If you treat the current condition well and do good preventative care, you’ll prob die before it rots through.

My first choices would either be Krown Rust Control or Rust Check both are yearly applications for about $100.00+. If you into the DIY then Fluid Film or something similar.
