Northeast Ohio winters can create havoc for your car, truck, van, or SUV as it related to body rust. Obviously, it is best to take the car through a wash during the winter on days that are above freezing. Often people forget the importance of having the underside of the car cleaned, meaning one of the automatic car wash facilities. The underside of the vehicle, particularly brake lines, wheel wells, and the vehicle frame can often begin deteriorating after only 4 or 5 rough winters.

Rust Prevention on Vehicles: 5 Tips

  • Avoid buying the dealer’s “rustproofing plans”, most experts feel it is not really worth the extra expense.
  • Check your car for spots where the finish has left the metal exposed. Often a rock will hit the base of your door panels which chips off the paint. This allows moisture to access the metal directly. Keep a touch up paint supply on hand to address these problems.
  • Look for darker segments of paint that are early indicators of corrosion within the body panel.
  • Use a powerful flashlight to examine the base and underside of the car.
  • Stop small problems quickly, before they progress. We recommend that each spring you locate any areas of concern and take the car to a body shop for repair. It will be relatively inexpensive for them to “touch-up” these areas and reapply a finish to protect the area.
