I am not sure if this is the right place in these forums to ask this question, so I apologise in advance if this the wrong area.

My question centres around the corrosion protection applied to new CVs when they are produced. Does anyone know if CVs destined for the Canadian market have more extensive corrosion protection applied, compared to US market ones?

I know they are all built at the same factory... but the harshness of the winters in Canada compared to most American states makes me wonder if there would be a difference for market suitability. I am also wondering if a new CV from the US would rust quicker in a Canadian winter compared to a fleet model built for Canada.

Any ideas?

No difference. Everything is coated the same.
