I am buying a new 2001 Odyssey. The dealer suggest buying additional rust protection (+ more, a package from Diamond-Kote) for $598 + tax (Canadian).
Though I am generally reluctant to buy any such extra options, I have read in some review that Odyssey has not adequate manufacturer's rust protection, compared to other Honda makes.
So I wonder if additional rust protection may be a good idea?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Steve, thank you for the information.

BTW, where did you read that the Odyssey's factory rust protection was sub par?

It was a review in the Wheel Section in Toronto Star, a couple of months ago. The author mentioned that he spotted rust development somewhere on Odyssey after a relatively short time in operation. He then speculated about the inadequate factory rust protection for Odyssey compared to other Honda vehicles (giving some details, which I don't remember).
