Is this a fantastic deal or gift from a family member?
I hate rust especially on unibodied vehicles. Plenty of boxed structural steel that is difficult to repair once rust cancer starts.
Shop around your looking at the best selling suv no need to buy one you don’t feel great about.

if it was a steal of a deal….
I would use a rust converter chemical spray on it. This will inert the rust chemically.
then I’d spray it down with a wax based oil penetrating rust proofing solution.
It is hard to tell from the photos just how bad it is.

Bring a plastic tab removal tool, and peel back the wheel liners. Have a look what’s going on in there.
I wish I had done that on my Duramax… she was sold after I seen what I was up against….

Here’s the inside of my door after being rust converted
Turns it black and is ready for paint.

A lot of times rust can be superficial. Look under a diesel truck with 300,000 miles… they look terrible but then they run for another 300,000.

if it were my money, I would spend a bit more to get a clean one and then I would take the steps to keep it clean.
