Lincoln of LaPorte knows that road salt helps to keep the streets passable when the snow and ice come. However, road salt can really cause a lot of a damage to your vehicle. There are ways that you can mitigate the damage that road salt brings.

One way to limit the damage from road salt is to make sure that your vehicle's chips are painted with touch-up paint before the winter season. This will help to keep the salt from getting on to your vehicle's bare metal where it can cause rust and corrosion to begin.

In the winter months, it is important that you keep your vehicle washed. After a snow event when a lot of salt is on the roads, make sure to wash your vehicle as soon as the temperatures are above freezing. Pay special attention to washing the undercarriage where salt can build up and cause damage.
