I am considering buying this LX, its in excellent condition, 123k miles, but comes from the northeast. I live in NC, would love some feedback on the level of rust on the undercarriage as i am considering this for a daily driver. Thanks
Great feedback, thank youI looked at a many good condition- otherwise GX's from the Northeast that looked very similar underneath.
-Due to the fact that I personally would be doing all maintenance/modifications/wrenching myself I didn't want to deal with rusty stuff, bastard exhaust bolts..etc.
-I also considered how "they" drive up North as a whole... I hope I don't get flamed too much for this, but if you have ever driven North of Maryland you understand people are hard on vehicles "as a whole".
-I am very particular and wanted an undercarriage as clean as the rest of the vehicle...so I decided to pass on many otherwise clean GX's.
With all that being said, these things are built like tanks and I doubt that the amount of rust shown would ever cause any failures during your ownership...
Although if I were to buy one like this I would get truck off the ground, wire brush it, de-grease it, and POR 15 everything underneath to kill the rust.
