Mine is w203 2005 and no rust it was made in south Africa according to the hpi check.
2007 W209 No rust.
2001 A208 CLK rust around boot lock and little bits on wheels arch edges.
2005 W220 320CDI, New to me, the previous owner had both front wings replaced 2 years ago due to rust repeatedly appearing despite attempts to clean them up. The only rust I can find on the car now is the beginning of bubbling at the front of the rear arches, on the edges of the returns, everywhere else is clean.
W203 C200 Kompressor 2001, rust effecting front and rear wings, all four doors and boot lid, currently replacing the two front wings with decent ones bought off a 2005 model on e bay, considering buying second hand parts to replace some of it which I think will be cheaper than getting it all done at a body shop.
I just voted incorrectly, I think the question needs rewording. I have a rust free 2005 220 CDI.
R230 03 no rust noted , not even on wheel arches only 35 odd k miles w208 01 rust on rear inner panel at back side of rear wheel,boot ,small hole now rear wheel arches treated 2x now all good but cant match the tanz metalic correctly. w168 many stone chips on bonnet , plenty surface rust around rear underside , plastered in AF 50. seems under control.
W203 C270 cdi 2001 manufacture new to me only slight rust on bootlid
My 2000 ML 270 AMG was rotting from the inside out. Bottom of all the doors, and the front panels below the grills were especially bad. Shame, as otherwise it was a stonking motor.
My 2008 ML 280 is completely rust free. I think it's had an easy life though ... good service history and all that!
2008 S65 - Rust on rear arch lips were mud sits, sorted now.
2013 C63 - More rust that I would like to see on the subframe where the front subframe mounts sits.
2005 Clk 270 - Rust on rear arch lips were mud sits, rust on rear boot lid around 3rd brake light.
2012 W204, No rust !!. I wouldn't expect anything either. The car is as near mint as I am able to achieve as it has only done 25,000 miles
This was just over a year ago I posted.
That offside repair has started to come through again. I was warned it might. The car will be going toward the end of year so I 'll leave it and probably P/X, I can't imagine trying to sell it myself..
I have some on the right side rear roof panel that runs next to the glass roof. This is getting sorted by MB. This is a W204 2013.
Is that on the strip that runs either side of the roof where the roof rack would fit ?. I think that is common, I have a very small amount there although it hasn't actually broken through the paint, it just looks lie small bubbles. Been there for some time now
