It turns out that the durability of the body depends not only on the brand and model but also on the specific year of production. After all, anti-corrosion protection may be different for the same model of different years.

So, as for the cars of 2002-2003, the best are Audi A4, Mercedes C-Class, Nissan Micra, Opel Astra, Renault Megane, Saab 9-5, Skoda Octavia, VW Golf and Volvo S70 / V70.

Such used cars manufactured in 2002-2003 as Ford Focus, Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Mercedes E-Class rust most often. Their level of anti-corrosion protection is unsatisfactory.

Among the models of 2004-2005, Citroen C5, Ford Mondeo, Nissan Micra, Opel Astra, Renault Megane, Volvo S40 / V40 resist corrosion well.

As for the models of the same years that are quickly covered with rust, these are Ford Focus, Kia Picanto, Mercedes A-Class, Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Passat.
