I just purchased a used 2014 GT/CS with 49k miles. It's from Carmax and i'm still in my 7-day window to return the car. I'm trying to determine if i should based on the undercarriage rust my mechanic found. It's an east coast car, so i'm to understand rust is fairly normal, but i'm not sure how much is too much (born and raised in CA). Another thing to note is the poor welding job of the after-market exhaust , which Carmax says they will fix.

Other than the rust issues, the car is in great shape and is everything i was looking for. However, i am still torn on whether i should return it or not based on the rust issues. I'm getting as much feedback as possible and would appreciate any of your thoughts!
