    Rust on your suspension is NOT covered under warranty

    if you don't like the rusty suspension then you should rust proof your car... My car 5.5 years old and all my suspension is black cause I krowned my car from brand new

    I dont care about the look of it i am just worried that it would spread further and rust other parts? Ye i made the mistake of not rust proofing when the car was new. So at krown do you have to rust proof every year or is it just one time thing?

    You have to do it every year so your car is always gross and oily.
    Suspension rust will spread around the suspension slowly, won't affect the performance though. Its just surface rust.
    Canada gave us rust and DRL. Thanks for nothing Canada!

    I just bought a used 2010 Mazda3 Gt with 72,500 ams on it…Few scratches around door handles and lift gate but otherwise clean and no accidents.
    Truly loving it and it has no rust.
    So, I was wondering if I should Undercoat with Krown or is there another good competitor?
    I have used Krown before, but, just wondering if anyone has an equivalent product now?
    Not trying to cause any nasty arguments, just want to protect my little white marshmallow, thats all.
    Thanks for any comments or assistance on rustproofing options!

    Dude that is such an oily mess you'd never know if it was rusting under there lol
    You might say... but its oily so it won't rust. But then again, Mazda

    We have Mazda 3 2012 bought brand new right away Krown Protection. And after 20 months check the pictures. Also 5th door Brake's dust Speckle (as claimed from day one by dealer) turns out to be nice rust under paint. Somebody asked if we will buy Mazda again...No as a quality of the Paint and the corrosive protection on body is realy weak. We had Hyundai Elantra GT 2002 fro 7 years when the first signs of the rust started show up. Poor Quality
