"has not spend [sic] a winter in the city..."
but "has winter tires".

sounds like semantic fuckery.

this is going to get fun.

it has not snowed enough in Vancouver since 2008 to spray salt on the roads. Anyhow, they now spray salt water on the threat of frost.

BUT the rust is more due to the rain and humidity. And old steel in all older cars that have not been dip in galvanizing just rusts away.

I have a 2005 G35 that had a chip to bare metal on the wheel well (first day I drove the new car to work and stupidly parked in front of a house where they were mowing the lawn and threw a stone). I didn't touch up the spot and it has not rusted for 11 years.

In Vancouver, its the outdoor parking lots that get salted to death whenever the temp hits freezing.

And it seems that the folks responsible for applying salt do it at a rate of 1 pound per square foot! Probably they get kickbacks from new car dealers.
