Winter weather can make the roads a dangerous place, which is why many areas use road salt to help motorists navigate safely. However, road salt can cause damage to your vehicle, but don't let that happen with these tips from Genesis of Amherst.

During the winter, try to keep your vehicle washed at least once every 10 days. If salt remains on your vehicle, it can cause rust and damage your vehicle's topcoat. Be sure to remove salt as soon as possible to keep your vehicle's coat in good condition.

It's important that you wash your car after a snowstorm, and try not to drive through puddles or deep snow. If salt remains on the undercarriage of your vehicle, then it can cause damage to certain engine components, so be sure to rinse underneath your vehicle during the winter. You can protect your vehicle from rust by applying a protective coat just before winter.
