Fighting car rust is a tough battle, but it’s not one that you can’t win. This past week we received a question on how to prevent rust on a vehicle. Luther Brookdale Chrysler Jeep Dodge, your Chrysler dealer in Brooklyn Center, listened, and wants to help. 

Many Minnesota residents battle rust due to driving on salt covered roads. This can’t be helped, but there are a few steps you can take to prevent this salt from rusting your car. Below take a look at these 6 steps to prevent rust and remove it from your vehicle. 

Plan Ahead
Before snow even hits the ground in winter, prepare your car in the spring. Wash your entire vehicle, even the underside. Slap a coat of wax and wax sealant on the exterior. It’s important to seal the undercarriage. You can find a product at the auto parts store that will work fine as a sealant. Apply it to the undercarriage, focusing on the brake and fuel lines. These rust or corrode very easily. 

Clean Regularly 
To prevent rust, give your car a bath as much as possible. Drive it through an automatic car wash for a safe and quick solution to removing salt. Make sure to re-wax and seal after you’ve washed it. You can even pay for a detailer to drop by your work to clean your vehicle. 

Dry Completely
It’s just as important to remove all water from your car as it is washing it. Focus on drying all edges including the doors inside and out. Get the undersides of the door handles, hinges and hood and truck edges. 

Buy a good quality protectant and spray it on all exterior rubber and vinyl surfaces. Then, apply wax to all exposed metal. Use a hairdryer to warm the metal surface before applying the wax to help it dry to the metal faster. You can even dry your rag before buffing.
