I recently purchased a 2016 Mkx Select with a 2.7 engine that was originally from New Jersey.  It only had 8,000 miles and was allegedly driven by a factory executive.   Yesterday, I happened to look under the car and was surprised to see the exhaust pipes with a good amount of rust on them.  The mufflers looked new with no rust.  Is this typical of a 2016 exhaust system.  Thanks....Bill

I remember being under my 2013 not too long after I bought it (less then 12 months) and could not believe how rusty (not limited to the exhaust pipe) it look compare to my 6 year old Odyssey.  Never give me problem up to the time I trade it in at 39 months for my 2016.  


I'll take a look on the week-end and report back.

I received my 2016 MKX on March 24 2016. Vehicle was shipped from the assembly line to the dealership located in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Upon visual inspection of the undercarriage I was shocked to find salt deposits throughout the bottom.

Apparently not a good idea to order a vehicle from Canada during their snowy season.

So much for the $799.00 dear prep charge, but living in Florida who would have thought of cleaning the undercarriage!

Now I have a 2017 that was built in May of 2017.  SALT FREE!


It would seem the rust chemistry starts soon after some vehicles leave the plant.


Bottom line, keep your bottom clean.

As a senior I can unequivocally state that time rusts all pipes.
