It would depend on who did it, and how well they cleaned out the bottom of it first. There are more products now than when my friend had it done, so I'm not as familiar with those. He's still driving it with well over 150,000 on it (and he's not particularly persnickety about keeping it washed ) whereas my old rust bucket had to be sent to pasture at 100,000.

The alternative would be to frequently wash it using the bottom blast feature at the car wash, but it's tough when it's below zero.

I don't care how much business a wrench has, if he doesn't care enough about cleanliness in his shop, he won't have business for long. Doing quality work on vehicles requires CLEAN, and that includes tools, equipment and floors.

Suzuki should not be associated with a chevy, it is better quality and made in Japan not US, hence it is reliable.

I agree Mainebrokerman !! Someone also asked if undercoating can be applied to a used vehicle and the answer is yes. I brought my 05 Dakota with me from California and undercoated it when I got here. Of course coming from Cali it was like new under there too. I had the clear fluid film put on. I'll let ya know how it holds up!

Where you been? Ford has been making excellent cars and trucks for the last few years.

There is a troll in cyber space who get his jollies by joining city-data under a new name every now and then just to bump old threads, this isn't the first time someone has done this as their only post, and it won't be the last.

I apply under coating every fall. You can buy it in a can from napa. My uncle has done this every year to his 1990 silverado and the frame still looks new.
