Protecting Your Car from Winter Salt Corrosion

Salt is used in the winter on the roads to help reduce the buildup of ice. The team at Sheehy Honda wanted to help educate our audience to the damage that the salt can have on your vehicle if it is not removed often.

Avoid driving through large puddles of standing water because salt will collect there. As you ride through, the water splashes to the undercarriage, and the salt basically binds itself to the metal surfaces. This can cause those metal parts to rust and cause mechanical issues moving forward.

The best way to reduce the likelihood of salt doing damage to your car's exterior is to get to a car wash at least once a week. The car wash is equipped with high-pressure hoses that blast away the salt from the paint and the undercarriage. Getting the car washed frequently reduces the chances of rust and corrosion from developing.
