I have a 2005 Nissan Altima that has been through 7 winters. The undercarriage has a lot of rust, which has resulted in repair bills this year. Will the rust continue to get worse, since I now have the car in a warm weather state, or will it go into remission?

    once the car is rusted it is rusted the only way to stop it from rusting is have it sandlasted and undercoated

    Rusty undercarriages will either get worse or stay the same...it is impossible to improve on its own...isn't Florida a humid state? Humidity causes rust so even while warm it is still not dry.
