Protect Your Car From Road Salt

During these harsh winter months, there is a lot of road salt being placed down in order to keep drivers from sliding all over the place. Road salt helps keep the roads safer, but it can cause significant corrosion on your car. Stokes Honda North has some tips to help protect your vehicle from road salt.

The best means of protection against road salt damage is car washing. Make sure to wash your car at least every ten days if the weather is above 40 degrees. Pay special attention to the areas around the wheels, and don't forget to remove the salt from your car's undercarriage.

Another way to avoid damage from road salt is to avoid driving in deep snow if at all possible. Snow can get packed around your wheels holding the corrosive salt in place against your car. This can lead to a significant risk of rust damage.
