Where are the common rust spots for MKIV's? I am going to a highly humid area where rust is a very big problem so I just want to know what parts I need to pay extra attention to. Also, do those electronic rust prevention gadgets work? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Keep an eye on the decklid around the rear window. This is the one spot where Toyota f'd up, IMO. The design used for holding the rear window actually catches water, holds it, and eventually leads to rust.

The dreaded hatch rust is the only thing you need to worry about. Either switch to a CF unit, or have your glass pulled and prep that area like a son of a bitch.
