Hi all,

I recently tried to have a tranny flush done on my 09 pat, and the dealership refused because of my crossmember rust. Got under to look at it, and it is pretty bad. I'm going to take it to a local shop instead of the dealership as there is about a 2k difference in the cost.

Is there any particular crossmember/subframe/engine cradle that is better than another or more resistant to the rusting? or are they all about the same?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Brands can have different manufacturers from time to time, so it may be hard to know what you're really getting.

That said, if I were doing a replacement I'd consider having the new part treated inside and out with Fluid Film, Krown, or some other rust protection before I installed it.
