Road Salt and Your Vehicle

This winter was especially tough on vehicles. Salt and chemicals used to keep the roads safe for driving take a toll on vehicles. These chemicals are highly corrosive and it’s not just the body of the vehicle that suffers. Brake lines, exhaust systems, suspension parts, etc. all are susceptible to corrosion. This could lead to safety issues with your vehicle. Take the time to wash your vehicle and it’s underside thoroughly. As part of a spring maintenance routine have your auto technician inspect your vehicle’s under carriage and brake lines for signs of corrosion. For more info check out this video by SaferCar.gov.
