Hello guys.

If you think it is normal, you can just ignore my concern.

However, there are more people who do not know about this.

I need to inform this to people.

Firstly, I have 5 years old Nissan Versa and 2 and half years old Nissan Rogue.

None of them does not have rust problem like this.

Versa does not have rust at all.

Rogue has a tiny bit rust near the weld part.

However, my 6 months old 2017 Civic has tons of rust builded up already.

I understand there are condensation building up, however, it should not be bad like this.

If the manufactural knows about this, they have to galvanize the metal or coat with rust preventer or something.

I am attaching the photo of my 6 months old 2017 CIVIC.

It is up to you how you think, however, we need to fight for this.

There are more people who concerns of their health.

Google "Honda Korea rust problem."

Honda Korea announced to remove all of the rust under the dashboard.

Why not us?

They got the car from USA too.

Hood is located outside.

The one that I took is inside of the car.
yea i know was just talking about the rust i found on a new car.

but the rust you shown is just surface rust on unpainted surface. im almost wondering if its because of moisture from the a/c ducts

The therapeutic dose for iron oxide is 3–6 mg/kg/day. That rust you're breathing in is good for you.

almost every car i have owned has had rust that looks like that under the dash.

its because those parts are NOT painted so they tend to get rust over time. I have yet to ever see them rust out mainly only on the surface

That rust is totally normal.

The one concern I have is the cracked steel in the first picture.

Did you buy this car used? Almost seems like it may have been in an accident

I checked my 2016 EXT and it sits outside 24/7... no rust.. I don't even see any under the car. Only on the rotors. Even the brake calipers are rust free.. :) I would address the cracks to Honda. The light surface rust is from hot days with your A.C. running for long periods to cause condensation.

My 16 Ext is 1 and a half years old. Park in a garage. My rust doesn't seem to be as bad. Condensation from a/c makes sense to me. If your car is really hot inside and you turn on the a/c, it will form condensation.

But my car is only 5 months old. I turned my A/C on less than 20 days since I got this car. It seems your car has way less rust inside than mine even though you got your car 1 and half years ago.
I guess to check it, turn on the air and see if it's condensation or something leaking. But have to wait until at least May, now.
