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.
