Irfan Khan/Getty Images The California Air Resources Board sealed a new deal with the four major automakers on the matter, Reuters reported Monday, after initially announcing their intentions this time last year. CARB did not immediately return Roadshow's request for comment on the deal's finalization.

I think all cars exhaust pipes get very rusty after not very long. Why is that ? I know that the pipe gets extremely hot, but how come that makes it rust more That said, most of my exhaust (the portion after the catalytic converter) is stainless steel, so it doesn't rust and looks pretty nice when I polish it.

- my car is an 07 malibu, the exhaust mount is corroded ( heavily rusted ), and the pipe is rusted as well. - when the shocks are low, the exhaust hits the ground when going on bumps. is this normal or a defect ? and can my exhaust There's no way it should be rusted that much, it's only a year old .

A rusted exhaust is no reason to withdraw from the purchase of an older used car. Ordinary wear and tear is not a material defect, affirmed the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) in Karlsruhe in a judgment published on Wednesday.

This also applies if this results in a need for renewal in the foreseeable future due to further wear and tear.

In the Cologne case, the plaintiff wanted to return his more than nine-year-old Peugeot to the dealer. He bought the car at the beginning of 2014 with almost 85,000 kilometers on the odometer for 5650 euros. At that time it had just come through the TÜV. After a while, the buyer noticed loud noises from the exhaust. So he wanted his money back and sued the dealership.

Basically, the dealer is liable for a certain period of time for defects that already existed when the car was purchased. In the case of a used car, however, this usually only obliges him to repair it, not to take it back. There must be a major deficiency for this.

None of this is an option for the BGH. In an almost ten-year-old small car with several previous owners, significant rust perforations on the exhaust system should be regarded as normal wear and tear. There are no indications that traffic safety is impaired. There is therefore no defect.
