Re: megane 12 yr anti corrosion warrant 2003 megane rusting

Yeh itd be nice .
I think that kind of thing is only covered by a 3 year warranty,Im not even sure if it extends to the more recent 4 year warranty(that might only be for moving parts n electrics).
The 12 year warranty,mercs have a 30 year one I think,covers something like .The paint wont fall off the body panels,as long as there is no physical damage to it from the front , if rust is coming thru from behind, forget it.
Wheelarches,understandably, any metal bits that are exposed to stones,winter salts and the crud buildup ,I dont know whats the answer there.
My meg has nice sharp metal lips turned in underneath.With big n wide wheels especially at the front(on mine) its not so good
Thats my rough understanding of the 12 year thing.If its better than that..great!
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
