stainless steel can still rust, but its more than likely pitted through the stainless coating and the actual metal below that is rusting. Its not a pure s.s. exhaust, just like pretty much anything nowadays.

Contact Borla here through an e-mail and see what they say. They should honor their own warranty and set you up with replacements.
I'be never heard of this before with a Borla or Corsa exhaust.

They wont replace shit unless you have a hole in the pipe or muffler (falling apart) ....some rust on the outside of the exhaust isnt anything to worry about.

My Mustang 5.0 had Borla exhaust and the pipe actually rusted and broke off and was actually scraping the road while driving....they replaced it for free.
