Depends on where you live, what you drive it in and how often you clean it. If I drove my car year round in NJ and didn't take it through a full underbody car wash every 2 or 3 days in the winter it'd rust real fast.
2000 Mustang GT Steeda #0048 34k miles. 99 Cobra 4V swapped, FTBR IRS swapped, exhaust, tuned by James Gordon.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

Hell I have rust on my 2014. Like scotty said it deoends on where you live. In my case I had a really crappy paint repair job on a fender bender a couple years ago and didn't notice some of the paint peeled off at the bottom which exposed metal. I ended up sanding it down and trying to color match it but then decided to just wrap the whole damn thing anyway. Lol
