Car manufacturers are currently swimming on the trend waves "climate" and "sustainability". But with the rust protection classic sustainability, they have saved again for several years, show several reports. Tesla does not do too little against the brown plague.

In the 1970s, cars didn’t even have six -figure mileage counters because they could not be trusted for a long time. In fact, the rust ate most after a few years. Some brands seemed particularly susceptible to this. Every car fan knows the story of the Alfasud: Technically and optically, the compact Alfa Romeo from the 1970s was state -of -the -art. But the rust destroyed the image of the car – and damaged the entire brand. The foam sprayed into the cavities gradually became porous and pulled more moisture than before. Some cars already came to the dealer with rust damage. It was only in the course of a comprehensive facelift for model year 1981. But the child had already fallen in the image fountain. "Alfa Rosteo" or "already rusts in the prospectus" blasphemed press and audience about the beautiful Italo sledges.

Cars last longer – until now

Today, many drivers think, rust is no longer a problem, in times of fully dipped body and the highest quality controls during production. In fact, cars actually last longer, the average age in Germany is currently almost 10 years. It takes an average of 18 years before a car sees the scrap place at the end of its lifetime.

But it looks like the long-term quality of our cars are more likely to go in the other direction. In 2016, a report from Sweden showed how susceptible many modern cars are for the brauen plague – partly because of construction features that favor rust. Even the Volvos, which were considered to be the rock solid, have become more susceptible to corrosion again, the report from Sweden stated.

    Tesla gets the Alfasud problem?

    The Tesla electric cult brand is also an example of defective rust prevention. Whoever looks at Teslas up close will quickly discover defects in painting and other places. There were reports on Teslas on social media that were rusted in snowy regions after a winter season. the "Auto Motor & Sport" had a Tesla Model 3 examined by rust expert Ralf RObler with only 300 kilometers on the speedometer on the speedometer. The result is reminiscent of the Alfasud from the 1970s: cavities were sprayed with building foam. “It will pick up with water. In six months the brown will be a total rust in six years, ”expects RObler. The first rust can also be seen on the Tesla coupling rods. "The whole front carrier rusts first because the water cannot flow away anywhere," said RObler to "Auto Motor & Sport".

    Lightweight construction brings with it rust problems

    GTu technology chief Marco Oehler also assumes that the trend towards lightweight construction – it is necessary primarily by electromoblity to compensate for the heavy batteries – will have a negative effect on the susceptibility of modern cars. Because aluminum and magnesium as lightweight materials have a problem, the so-called "galvanic corrosion": "If unfavorable material pairings in hidden places that can be protected less from corrosion, clash, penetrate moisture in daily use and thus act as an electrolyte, corrosion sites inside, which will only become visible from the outside", So Marco Oehler.

  3. Mostness: spray cavities with building foam
    That is already sabotage on the product, because every manufacturer needs to know that building foam attracts moisture and thus rusts the car. The designer or technician who understands me (!) explains the advantage of building foam in cavities oh, it will receive € 1000 from me immediately … Good to know that Tesla fabricates such nonsense, I will never buy such a car from the manufacturer. About 17 years ago, Opel also wrapped insulation mats to load -bearing parts and axes, or thus wrapped it with the result that axes and load -bearing parts were rusted after 5 years, and the cars literally according to ADAC report from 2011 Had life -threatening rust

  4. application
    I apply for around 1000 €. No seriously, no building foam is used but structural foam for reinforcement. First the body goes through a immersion bath for the first coating and then expand in the dryer of the paint, then (and only in the dry area) these foams. Unfortunately, some manufacturers mentioned here do without measures such as cavity sealing or PVC order on the ground.

  6. Alfasud and rust
    In March 1973 I bought a brand new Alfasud. After a year, this car looked as if it came from the scrap site. The paint was littered with bubbles everywhere. It was from the factory to rust on the painting. Comment by the seller at Hausler Munich: That is probably only an exception in my car. The other Alfasud scrap piles, which could not be seen on the street, showed that this was not the case. It is regrettable that this rust-aera will open again.

    That was the notorious white series. That had to do with the fact that the workers were on strike at the time and that many unpainted raw bodies just stood around and then when the strike was quickly painted over it. In addition, the Alfa Sud from the sheet metal from Russia was not very good. I know that my father drove one out of the white series. The car has the 2. HU not survived

  9. Sustainability nowadays ?
    Where please, it is (still) to be found ? In the past, technical devices lasted decades, today they are built with target breakage points so that they are scrap after a few years. We produce tons of neumull, now called doa. So devices that never worked and are not repairable. So directly from the factory on the trash. And we’re talking about sustainability ?

  10. Cybertruck the other e-car
    There is no other car in this world that has 2 million "pre -orders". There is also no second opinion. Just a very clear "yes", or a very clear "no". The advantages are difficult -to -shape thick stainless steel bodies. No paint. A large loading area, high payload, very large trailer load. Place for 6 people. A large battery, 4 drives and fast like a Porsche. Just what people who don’t want a new car every 3 years. But they don’t have to go to the workshop after umpteen years because one of the 1000 wear parts gives up the mind. There are only repairs and no total damage due to rusting or permanent lying on the country road. The first really sustainable automobile. The disadvantages, everyone can come up with.

    Especially with the super mega great frost -proof slices. What a respectable embarrassment when demonstrating this box. Mr. Musk’s astonished face is still a scroll online.

  13. With electric cars
    very much I don’t have such a big problem at first. The rust protection of a Tesla is z.B. adapted to the lifespan of the car of around 10 years. If the batteries are broken, the body is also rusted through and the on -board computer is no longer update, because hopelessly outdated. You should buy a new car as quickly as possible. Sustainability is written in small, economic strength must not fall down and lobbying of the auto industry has paid off. Customers become weakly…. Functions lured and get a beta version delivered. In the end, however, it is not only the case with Tesla, but for all electric cars with a firmly built-in battery.

  14. Battery live long
    The assumption that the batteries are only scrap after a few 10,000 km has been refuted for a long time. You can currently from approx. 1500 charging cycles at least go out, that would be a lifespan of approx. 3-500000km, depending on the vehicle. Which car does this without any problems and why?
