Hey all! I am new here and recently purchased an '08 and it is rust free, however I live in the snow belt and was curious as to what anyone else has done to help prevent rusting. I was considering pulling the black side skirts and the wheel well liners to clean,wax, and fluid film those areas before winter comes around. Is this sensible or worth doing ?

I live in southwestern Ontario in Canada - smack dab between three Great Lakes, so we get hammered by winter each year - and I use a company called Krown. They use a drip oil, so it takes about 30 to 40 minutes to do the job in their shop then you drive it away and it drips for about a week or two. I do it once a year for about $115 (Canadian, so $90 US) and it's great. I bought my car used and rust formed shortly after in a few spots since the previous owner didn't take great care of it, so I fixed the rust then take it Krown each year and it's never come back. It's what all the local governments in my area use for their vehicles and the Canadian military also uses it after they did a study to find the best protection. I figure if it can hold up in -40 celsius weather in the arctic it'll work for me. :)

I personally wouldn't pull the side skirts only because the white clips holding them in are pretty flimsy and would likely break. You could always call the dealership to see what new clips would cost in case a few break. I looked at doing that a year or two ago, but it was more trouble than it was worth, in my opinion. I've seen people do it with other cars then put in an aluminum skirt to prevent rusting, but I'm lazy so the plastic side skirts remain. :) The Krown oil gets into that area anyways. The wheel well liners should be much easier to take off and put on though.

Here's a few pictures of mine from two years ago to give you an idea.
