This car doesn’t look bad at all but it’s what you can’t see that is the most important.  What exactly is meant by “little visible rust”?

The worst is undercoated cars, it always rusts from under the undercoating, beware.  And the inside of the subframe rails needs to be scoped, the only real way to see the extent of the corrosion there.

You can see pretty bad rust in the trunk. My guess is this car is not as good of a deal as it looks.
