    Hi there, I,m new here-have a 2008 Toyota 4 Runner SR5 -bought used in 2019-moved here from Florida and only have 131,000 miles on the vehicle. Been reading about the rust problems and want to do preventive maintenance on my vehicle since I now will have to deal with ice, salt and snow. Where is the best place to get an undercoating done on my vehicle and how much should it cost me(ballpark) and how long will it last? Thanks for all the help

    They do salt in Tenn? Regularly?

    I live in Charlotte and the only salt we get is when they get a snow (maybe once a year). That hasn't been an issue. Unlike the northeast where I had my son's Mazda Fluid Filmed in Mass when he took it up there for school.

    If you go to fluid film website they have a location finder. I also called them and they keep a list of places also.

    So you are saying the amount of snow here is minimal? I am not familiar with this area/climate as I have lived in Florida for the past 25 years and am originally from Buffalo NY the snow capitol of the U.S.

    Ask the neighbors if they salt the roads regularly in your area during the winter.

    If not, fluid film is a waste.

    I'm in the Piedmont which gets nearly no snow, but the mountains do get more snow. But even then, I don't think the mountains get a tenth of what they do in the rust belt.
