It works, my neighbors 1992 Dodge Shadow V6 with 286k has one installed and has almost no rust. I believe in them. BUT, not the price.

Don't bother with that ****. Yearly oil treatments/sprays are what I'd stick to.

And I WORK at Crappy Tire.

A friend of mine had one installed when he bought the car. He got it from the GM dealer since he worked there. It is on a 2002 GA GT. No rust on it. He disconnected the battery once to work on the car and the next day his rotors started to rust. But with the system functional no rust appears.

Who wants to keep away rust anyway? It just gives another excuse to buy a new car.
