Excessive Exhaust Rust

My exhaust broke in half right behind the muffler the other day and now the tip points straight at the ground thanks to a big rust patch. Does anyone else have a problem with excessive exhaust rust or is it just my luck?

It seems they all have issues with rust. But I haven't had one rust all the way through yet.

Good golly; I can't remember the last time I took a vehicle into the "muffler shop" for a new exhaust system. Literally, I think it was our old 1986 Ford Aerostar sometime in the mid-90s. For the three Toyotas we've owned, we never had an issue with any component in the exhaust system, except for replacing a couple of O2 sensors along the way. That would be over 25 years of ownership and 450K miles total on those three vehicles.

Do you make a lot of short trips? If so, you may be getting excessive condensation buildup in the exhaust system. This could be particularly excessive in cold weather.

Yeah I live in Kentucky where we have cold winters and hot summers I usually use it on the farm and as my commuter vehicle, but it shouldn't have rusted through after only 106,000 miles.

Looks like you need just a new clamp.

Please remember that it's a big ole diverse country with weather conditions that might not match your home town exhaust pipe longevity.
