    Steel rusts, it is strong enough to not rust through so I wouldn't worry about that.

    hmmmm, i think depending on where you live a lot of things under the carriage will rust. But on most cars, it wont have an effect on performance for some time. The ends of my exhast tips are begining to rust a bit from the 'dribbles' coming from the pipes and pooling up before dripping. Anyone else seen this one?

    Looks harmless enough and it could have been sitting at the port for a while and probably a combination of bad weather and sea water that caused the rust. Some rust restorer and it should look good as new.

    WD-40 shouldnt get rid of rust..rust is rust. it shouldn't be a problem our cars were designed to handle it.

    Living in Canada dealing with cold weather and snow, not to mention salt and sand (in some places) to deal with the cold weather its no surprise many cars accumulate rust. its just something you will have to live with.

    that's normal. if you want to remove the rust & give it a finish you could eliminate that, but every fx & evey nissan infiniti has rust as the finish of these parts.

    all cars have rust to a certain extent. raw parts anyway & hardware at least.

    if you have a rust and corrosion WD-40 wont just magically make everything better. WD-40 can be used as an anti-corrosion solution. It wont get rid of rust...but it can help prevent rust...so you can use it to prevent any further corrosion.
