Default 03 vue subframe rust?

i got a nice looking vue this spring with bad timing belt
fixed that but noticed a good chunk of center of subframe had rust
it was the area right under the rack and pinion
sold it and am looking at another 03 vue and owner says it has subframe rust
have not looked at it but maybe its in same area?
it is an 03 with 100k miles
owner has had it for 10 yrs. got it w/13k miles
says it has original timing belt. hmm, at least it is not broke yet

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
