Should I have my car rustproofed?
Not if it's a new vehicle (built since 1992). Most newer cars and trucks are made with electroplated galvanized steel in rust-prone areas. This means that if scratched, the steel "heals" itself with a built-in zinc plating. Not only is rustproofing such a vehicle unnecessary, the drilling and spraying that are a part of the process can void the protective warranty offered by most car dealers.
