Anyone use Counteract Corrosion Protection???

Just wondering, I saw their product on 2 Guys Garage a while back. It's basically a small voltage current that runs through the body/frame and helps prevent corrosion. The ENEMY of our Zuks, especially for us guys in the salt belt ;-) Anyway, it's not too expensive and they have a discount now for 2 Guys Garage viewers. Basically, for everyone. For the SUV/4x4's it costs $279 on sale. Here's a link to their site for those interested:

http://www.counteractrust.com/

So, has anyone used this product??? Any thoughts?

Cheers!
Steve

Re: Anyone use Counteract Corrosion Protection???

Well I don't use it and don't know much about them only what I've read. But I'm guess'n they are junk. If they really worked wouldn't new cars or at least the rich mans cars come with their own version of this toy? (then again maybe they do as I don't get to play with $50,000 vehicles. Hopefully someone here knows if factorys install these on newer vehicles. Also found this link to another BBS with a thread on em.

Re: Anyone use Counteract Corrosion Protection???

Good point. I went to that thread you posted and it looks like they are all skeptical, yet well knowledged. Maybe I should be too, b/c it does sound a bit too good to be true. And the one guy was right: there would have been a lot more noise made if this product really worked.

Cheers,
Steve

Ships have used this system for years to prevent rust. So I think it would work fine. It won't do any good however if you neglect routine maintenance.

The same thing is used on underground natural gas transmission lines. It does work and these things for cars have been around for a while, nothing new.

Probably not. Most people who buy (or lease) $50,000 SUVs won't keep them for 15 years, so an anti-rust device would not be a major selling point.

Re: Anyone use Counteract Corrosion Protection???

I was checking out their website and realized the company is less than 50 miles from me. You wouldn't believe Sligo, Pa., it's a little town in the middle of a big coal strip mining area. I'll take a run over and check this out, I'd like to keep my zuk rustfree as long as possible and the winters here are murder on cars..
