Here in Colorado, rust isn't a problem and a quick touch up with a file and an application of real brake grease is all I've ever used.
The only reason I have ever gotten rid of cars was rust. Around here "rust never sleeps". I am getting ready to put my white Leaf up on stands and start going after some rust I was quite surprised to see last fall when doing a rear bearing. First new car I ever bought, planning to keep it a while. Backstory, I was at a client's in fall of 2013, saw her's, she said "take it for a day", next thing I knew I was down at the dealership with a check. I had been wanting an electric vehicle for decades (even called the SoCal EV1 dealership to see if I could get one), somehow had missed the arrival of the Leaf. Love the car, hate rust.
I use the grease that comes in the little packets with disc brake pads. Sparingly.
