    Default Rear wheel wells

    Ive had my car for about 6 months and the rear wheel wells are rusting like crazy, would a paint shop be able to clean that up? Ive never owned a mazda before and i heard it was a problem but didnt think it was that bad...

    Depends how far along the rust is. Obviously buy some spray and treat them yourself to slow the effects.

    Rust check or another similar brand. Have self rust sprayed my 2007 since I got it and have very minimal rust.

    I have used Krown rust control every year sine 2012. Driven 6 winters.
    No rust at all.,,only surface paint issues like chips.
    Use something unless you are storing car in the winter.

    Sure they can fix it, but it'll most likely be the same in a couple of years. Unless the metal is replaced or the panels are replaced, the rust will continue to show up. As mentioned you can purchase a spray to help slow the process down and I think Krown still sells their T40 if I'm not mistaken.

    Correct ..they do sell product for personal application.
    ..And it does slow down if not stop the rust from continuing to rust.
    But you gotta spray every year....
    I think the last two times i had the whole car sprayed i got a free can each time.
    i think they are $9...
    Its a rust inhibitor and lube.
    I use it to lube the engine pulleys and all moving parts...lube and keeps rust out.
