Rusting Exhaust System
I'm original owner of a '91 Civic Sedan. Very nice car with one chronic problem however. Since the car was approx. 4-5 yrs. old, it started getting rusting mufflers/tailpipes. About every two years, I need to replace either the muffler or tailpipe or both, due to rust through. One muffler shop told me "Hondas are like that". He said that Honda exhaust systems lay very flat and that the water vapor from fuel combustion tends to collect in the system. Any others experiencing this? BTW, I live in the Wash, D.C. area, so we don't have harsh winters/lots of road salt present. Also, I'm a native and I've never had this problem with other vehicles.
