R U S T ???????

Any of you owners of the new 2010 mustangs looked under your ride? Every new mustang has rust on the rear axles all the way out to the shock mounts. IS anyone able to do anything about this at the ford dealerships?

100% normal. All you could do is clean it all off and have it coated~ all cars rust under the bottoms (well 99% of all cars)

I know that, just seems that Ford would factory coat the cast parts. Its hard to imagine that we pay $30K+ for a new car thats rusting on the lot.

true, but all cars/trucks do it, not just Fords

Mine is pretty clean since I have aluminum and such (no live axle like the 05+ have). Its worse for cars up north though. They do undercoat the cars, most of the rust is on the driveshaft and live axle. Both can be removed and cleaned/coated and you would remove 90% of the rust if not more as the floor boards etc are coated to protect them.
