One reason why car exhausts rust faster than the car body of the car is because they are often at a different temperature.

The exhaust can be very hot and very cold so this creates a reaction rate which inturn makes the exhaust rust faster.

hope that helps :)

Why would a car in Florida rust quicker than a car in Arizona?

A car in Florida may rust quicker than a car in Arizona due to higher levels of humidity and salt in the air. Florida's proximity to the ocean and its tropical climate result in moist conditions that accelerate the corrosion process. In contrast, Arizona's dry climate and lack of coastal exposure make it less prone to rusting.
