Protecting Your Car from the Rigors of Winter and Salt Corrosion

With winter still in full swing across much of the nation, many drivers are now dealing with the negative effects of road salt treatments. The winter weather experts at Barbour-Hendrick Honda Greenville want you to be prepared to handle the rigors of the season so that your vehicle does not suffer any ill effects.

Salt that remains underneath your vehicle for any length of time can lead to rust formation. This can damage the mechanical function of your vehicle if not properly addressed. During the winter months, it is a good idea to wash your vehicle every ten days so that salt does not accumulate and cause damage.

Coating your vehicle with a protective finish will prevent rust from forming. In addition to the undercarriage of your vehicle, it is important to keep the tires, grill, and wheels clean. You also do not want these areas of the vehicle to hold moisture.
