if it was done within the first 6 months of ownership, it must be coated every year to keep the warranty intact.

Krown warranty guarantee's no rust below the window line, and will repair any rust that happens. Read the warranty book.

If your not worried about the warranty, you can do whatever you want

It's not that easy to get Krown to fix the rust, a buddy of mine had to fight them to get his car fixed.

I am looking into this now for my Elantra GT before the first snow and salt 'assault.' Its amazing how much salt we see on he roads.

How was the Krown treatment? I am trying to decide between some no-name, Krown, Rusk Check, or not at all.

Old thread I know, but it was what I found in google search...

The problem of rust prevention isn't with the product, but with the people applying the product. The way most shops run, regardless of brand, is to wave a spray gun back and forth until it all looks wet, but avoid over spraying because people get mad about the pavement and dripping. The results are underwhelming. I've seen one side of the battery tray wet and the other half bone dry. I've seen many shops not bother with the gap between the top of the gas tank and the bottom of the car body. With older car year models, a common test I did after spray jobs was to open the front door and feel in the hollow body metal towards the engine bay. Typically this is missed.

To do a real job, the people applying the stuff need to know the way vehicles are constructed, and target key areas like subframe, condensation points within hollow metal areas (rocker panel, trunk lid, door, window frame), and small areas like the gas tank top and filler. Sometimes it helps if rust control spray is all they do. The typical shop does something else for their main business, like tires, plus Rustcheck/Krown/whatever. They don't depend on rust control sprays for their business so they don't bother learning how to do it right. If your gas tank straps rust and break off, it is rather pointless that the rest of the vehicle was covered well. It has little to do with the product, but everything to do with the details of the people doing the work. Unlike other types of automotive maintenance, there are no manuals for this, and it is considered in the way people consider something like scotch guarding fabric - simply there for cosmetic purposes.

Having parted with a 2002 Maxima with a terrible radiator subframe and cross member corrosion (car was never treated when I bought it used in 2009), I can vouch for rust prevention being far more important than making a car look shiny and new.

Just traded my truck for a new santa fe.
My truck was 11 years old and the body is still in excellent condition.
What I used was Rust Check yearly--but the magic is getting any of this stuff applied right. Find a good applicator and stay with them!

Question?
My new Santa Fe has electronic rust protection ( I never have used this kind of protection before)
Can I have this undercoated using Rust Check or does this cause problems with the electronic rust inhibitor?

I've yet to see a success story from someone who has bought this. I understand the claim, that it would use the sacrificial anode concept from ships. But I've yet to see the proof that it works for something which is metal in the air. For a success story, I'd want to see a car in the winter salt belt 12 years old with no rust bubbles about to pop out in the wheel well area. Any car these days with no extra protection will look good at 8 years.

The rust control substances such as Rust Check or Krown have water displacing properties similar to WD40, and they carry no solvents, so they are safe on electronics. Whether they should avoid spraying the part of the electronic rust system which is supposed to rust (their equivalent to the anode) is a good question. There is probably no one selling the electronic rust inhibitor who can answer that because none of them understand the science enough to know, that is, assuming the science backs it up.

I researched the electrostatic rust protection module functionality on the net. I saw a comment from a Hyundai factory representative. He said the Hyundai's are protected from rust for a period of 10 years and that the electrostatic devices are not required. He said the dealerships are independent and they are free to offer these after sale options. I declined it. I may try CROWN.
