Honda Recalls 554,000 Cars for Headlamp Fix
The low-beam headlights may not illuminate on older models, Honda says.
The low-beam lights on 2002-2004 CR-V and 2003 Pilot SUVs may not switch on, the company said, which obviously could become a problem at night. The recall will begin in late April.
A week earlier, Honda recalled 1,316 CR-V vehicles from the 2006 model year to check for poor welding in the right front lower control arm, which could cause the arm to break and affect handling.
That explains why they rust out so quickly.
Honestly, I don't see it. None of my family's cars foreign or domestic have experienced any significant rust problems. My 26 year old Mazda has some minor surface rust on the left quarter panel where a prior collision damaged the paint, and some underneath where the battery sits due to a long term acid leak, but that's the worst I have ever seen. It seems that so long as you keep the paint in good condition the metal will last a long time, and paints these days are much tougher than they used to be.
A head lamp recall? Seriously! If this was a problem with the big three it wouldn't even be a recall they would just ignore it or make it a non-mandatory recall like it's not a big deal.

Talk to anyone who lives in the snowiest parts of the country and that's not true of just foreign cars. EVERY car will rust if exposed to salts and sits outside without being washed regularly.
My friends 2009 F-150 is already rusting in Michigan because of this and it had nothing to to with your BS claim of virgin steel.
