How to Protect Your Vehicle from Salt Corrosion

While drivers are grateful for the road clearing capabilities of salt in the middle of a snowstorm, the slurry of half-melted snow and salt that splashes on the exposed metal engine parts and underside can cause corrosion. Part of preparing for winter can include preventive measures to ensure salt doesn't damage your vehicle.

Try to wash your car at least once a week to stop the corrosive effects of salt on your clear coat and exposed metal parts. Make sure your car has ample time to dry before night falls, as any residual water from washing can freeze. If you notice any chips in your paint finish, take immediate steps to fix them, as they will begin to corrode after a few days.

If you are looking for a vehicle offering advanced capability in the snow or need to prepare your current vehicle for winter, you're invited to visit us at Northtown Honda in Amherst. We've got a range of vehicles you can take for a test drive and can help you to winterize your vehicle before the snow begins to fall.
