Rust

I have a 2000 clk 320. Over the years it has developed rust spots in almost every panel. It appears from searching these forums that other owners who bought a Mercedes in that time frame have had the same issue. Any thoughts on collectively approaching Mercedes to take ownership of this problem?

After 14 years in Chicagoland, at least some rust ought to be expected. What forms of rust protection have you invested in over the years, if any?

Did you wash the underbody after each day on salted roads?
All cars will rust, even those build with aluminium when you expose bare metal to salt.
Crucial is washing and touching up paint chips.
