Recently traded my dying 20 year old Accord in for a 2018 Rav4 XLE with 22,000 miles.

It was raining when I was at the dealership so I missed some of the rust underneath. Was in the process of spraying Amsoil MPHD corrosion prevention on the under side when I noticed the extent of the rust.
Is this normal for Toyota’s in the salt belt? My families other cars are older than this and don’t have near the amount of rust. I also noticed some of the hose clamps in the engine bay starting to show rust.

I would say that is normal, mine is fairly similar (I am in Quebec, Canada).

A good undercoating can only help, but I wouldn't be too worried.
