How to Rust and Salt-Proof Your Car
If you’re staying in Asheboro, North Carolina for the Holidays, you probably won’t have to worry too much about damage from road salt. However, lots of people travel north to be with family and friends during this season. Areas with lots of snow and ice will promise lots of road salt, which could mean bad news for your vehicle if you don’t salt-proof your car for the occasion. Here’s what to do.
Wax Your Car
If you can find the time in the busy Holiday season, waxing your car will surely pay off. A protective coat of wax can keep debris of any kind from denting the paint, which is what often leads to rust.
One way to avoid the worst of the debris is by literally avoiding it as you drive. Try your best to steer away from puddles and keep away from plow and salt trucks.
Wash Your Car
Using a pressure washer to wash the undercarriage of your car after winter driving will help rinse any salt from the underside, therefore preventing corrosion.
Get a Winter Checkup
It’s always a good idea to have your car looked at by a professional before putting it through extreme conditions. Bring your Chevy into Wayne Thomas Chevrolet before your winter driving this year for a thorough inspection.
