Is200 Rust Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im just new to the lexus world, I just bought an 01 IS200 Sport Last week. The car was 1 owner and has 37k on the clock. My question is, when I was painting my calipers I noticed alot of the metal work around the rear of the car is quite rusty, is this normal?? Has anyone any pics of under their car so I can compare? Everything seems sound enough but just alot of rust flaking off! :(

Yeah common thing then mate if its the exhaust, parts under the car etc. Just where the rain has splashed up. Don't worry about it mate. You'll get it on all cars

Hi charlie and Welcome to LOC :)

If the rust is on any of the suspension parts or like Adie says then dont worry.

If the rust is on/in any weld seams or on the chassis rails it could be because the car has had accident damage,hope its not the case on your car.
