Protecting Your Car from Road Salt-Related Corrosion: A Quick Guide

While salt is a great way to keep the roads in Limerick free of slush and ice, the residue it leaves behind hastens corrosion of your car's brakes, body, and undercarriage. During a harsh winter, it's crucial to protect your vehicle from salt corrosion, and you can follow these steps to do so.

Salt is the main line of defense against an icy road, but it's bad for your car. As in other areas of life, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; a good coat of wax works wonders. By waxing your car in advance of a cold winter, you're putting a protective layer between it and all that road salt.

Even with a heavy wax coat, it's still important to wash your vehicle frequently. Winter weather is often inconsistent, and on one of those "I don't even need a coat!" days, consider giving your vehicle a thorough wash, including the undercarriage. After washing it, touch up the wax as needed. Visit us at Piazza Honda of Pottstown to keep your car in top shape all season long.
