my 2ct

At least for my year part of the underbody was galvanized. In later yeas the whole car was galvanized. This basically only slows corrosion down.
I thought all models went through a electrostatical coating bath.

The problem with all those box sections is that they are not very well ventilated and therefore stay damp. The wax that is sprayed into the box sections seals all seams and prevents the moisture from doing harm. I believe most new cars receive some kind of wax treatment in the factory
