I hope not! Its truely a messy pain!
My husband spent 2 hours trying to work the stains out of our garage. Certainly not what we signed on for!!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Yes, that's the same as mine. The 4 knuckles are uncoated on my Titanium.

Ugh! Your exhaust (muffler to manifold) too?
I'm hoping that my dealership will spring for an undercoating to stop this mess since Ford is giving me the big No-No Head Shake! Less than 1K for my piece of mind and no longer need to chase around my new cars dribbles. It would be a godsend if they would replace it with a few fresh parts and then coat! Come on Ford...take care of us that invest in the USA!

Rotors will rust on every car... It's just surface, and comes off when you brake....
The rest is sort of ugly...

Oh yes I know about the rotors, but this isn't that. The rotors are fine. This is from behind them, underneath the car on those rusted parts which when wet from rain or snow drips the rusty water onto my rotors and staining the wheels, and the floor also intensifying the typical "rail dust" on the car itself. It's a mess. Snow again tonight and I know I'm going to have an issue again tomorrow. It's not salt either. Just snow at this point.

Looks like Ford did not think this one through.

I'm still waiting for some kind of answer from Ford and my local dealership regarding the car that I bought brand new that is ruining my property as if it was years and years old with all of the rust and all of the staining. This is sooooo aggrivating! I should've bought the Audi instead!!!
