comment Does it make the most sense to replace an old car's entire exhaust system all at once?
Hmm, actually, I just looked, and in my car's original brochure, it does list "Exhaust system -- aluminized stainless steel" as standard on all models. Not something I noticed, though, until now.

Thanks for the answer. Yes, the roads are salted (and more) somewhat generously here in Toronto. On stainless steel exhaust systems: What makes of car typically have that, at least as a common option? I'd like to make a point when I'm researching the next car to consider that. Also--would some kind of rust proofing earlier on have helped me here, or does that not apply to the exhaust system?

@JuannStrauss Thanks! I didn't know those were cheap & accessible.

@BobCross I did initially know the engine code after M1 mentioned it, and it was related to the EGR (I looked it up), but I didn't write it down and don't remember the specific value.
