I have been looking at a used 2013 EX-L with 131,000 KM.

I have some concerns with the amount of rust on the underside and door contact points (see images). This seems a little excessive even for a vehicle in Ontario. There is also oxidation on all four wheels, which I read has happened to others, and a tow hitch that looks pretty bad. Does this rust look like it soon lead to structural issues?

For comparison I've also drive a 2014 EX with 133,000 KM with minimal underside rust (but it was rust proofed).

On test drives the 2013 feels considerably smoother shifting and the steering feels a lot more nimble. I know there are transmission differences between the two but would a 2013 be preferred over a 2014 if the rust wasn't a major concern?
