Hello fellow owners. I’ve ran in to this issue on my 2021 Honda Pilot special edition that my spindle steering knuckle has rust on front driver side and from passenger side. Is there anyway that a dealership can fix this. I’ve owned my Pilot about a month now with. Thanks.

Wish mine looked that shiny underneath and I use Krown rust proofing cause we live in the salty north.

My 2020 has that too since new. I figured it's on both sides so it must be normal.

Nothing to worry about, surface rust. It stems from how they made the piece (cast metal).

I would not say that is normal, but awful. Honda should have painted that part. My CRV never rusted like that. :-(

My 2021 has rusted too..

Agreed! Or teamed the chemical composition of the steel to prevent this.

Not too many things as good as this product. Easy to apply and works very well. I do the entire underside of my cars and trucks. Lawn Mowers, snowblower, boat trailer. I have a 2008 Saab 9-3 with practically no rust on the undercarriage or any of the components. Dam near everything metal I have outside is sprayed with it

I spray our AC units at the beach house. Neighbors will rust out in 3-4 years, ours will last 8-10 years.
