How are 2016 Civic's holding up after 7~ ish years since launch? Anyone from the Northeast/Ontario/Quebec noted any weak spots, or the rear fenders starting to curl up like older Honda's?

I am in Toronto where they love to use that salt-like brine stuff on the roads in the winter, and haven't noticed any rust on my 2017. I don't have any rustproofing on the car. I also only have just over 40,000km on it, since I have been working from home since the pandemic began, so the car is driven only a fraction of the amount that it used to, since early 2020.

Honestly I'm pretty surprised. I have 170,000km on my 2017 SI and it doesn't look bad at all. Skid plate was absolutely destroyed and my windshield looks like it was sandblasted but other than that not bad. I rust proof every year. Small amounts of rust in the engine bay on bolts and what not but nothing falling apart yet. I am very hard on the car and commute 150 km a day.

Living in south east Germany, we also have a lot of salt during winters.

Mechanics said it looks good for that age, it's a 2017 model year btw.

Car has 65,000 kilometers and it's only parked outside:
