Exclamation Rust on brand new 2014 mustang v6

I recently just had Roush axle back exhaust installed, and when I got underneath my car to check out the exhaust I noticed that the whole rear axle is full of rust, parts of the drivetrain, calipers, ect... I live in Texas and bought the car about a month ago. Just wondering what you guys think I should do?

It's just surface rust. Common on that chassis. If it bothers you enough just sand and paint everything.

Sent from my massive johnson.

Yes drive your car around then come home and get the rotors wet, when the water dries it will have a "rust" look. I wouldn't be worried about it

Sand it and spray it with undercoating or enamel or paint it or whatever and do it every so often.

Yep. I bought my 2014 new and it already had the chassis surface rust. It's not a problem. As long as you aren't seeing rust on PAINTED areas, you're fine.

This topic has been beat to death. A search will find that this is normal. I think someone actually even tried taking their car back to the dealer and complained and was told the same.

I know someone who went to court over this... Judge threw him out and charged him with wasting people's time basically. Totally normal, that said, I would be an advocate for sanding and coating it. I'll be doing this when installing my watts link Monday.

Have you ever seen a construction site with steel beams? They are always "rusty" but its just surface rust. You can use the hammertone paint and paint right over the rust if you want.

Not only Mustangs

I have a friend that tried to return a Camaro due to the same thing. The Chevy dealer just laughed at her. It is normal and don't hurt anything at all. It does not look good though.

Yep I wasn't too happy myself when I noticed mine. I used a rubber under coating on mine that I bought from Canadian tire for around 10$, not only does it protect your car from further rust it is also chip resistant and looks great under the car. Been almost two years and haven't had to re apply.

In 1992 I went to our local ford dealership to look at a gt. When we popped the hood I was shocked because of the rusty look of the factory headers. But its perfectly normal every mustang I've owned has been the same.
