Tips to Start Protecting Your Car from Salt Corrosion

The crew at Ruxer Truck Center like to take opportunities to help car buyers to protect their investment with helpful advice. Today, we talk about tips to protecting your vehicle from salt corrosion.

The salt from the road is supposed to be melting snow and ice, but when it comes in contact with your vehicle, it does far more. That salt has the ability to damage the protective finish on your vehicle, promote rust, and even cause mechanical failures near the undercarriage. Bringing your vehicle to the car wash once one a week significantly reduces the chances of any of these happening.

Another way to reduce the negative impact salt has on your vehicle this winter, stop driving through deep snow. Salt in that snow gets packed into tight places in the undercarriage, harder to remove in cold weather. The longer that snow is present under your vehicle, the more likely corrosion will result.
