Protecting Your Exterior
You may be tempted to skip the car wash in the months when it feels like your car is always covered in salt. However, it’s actually more important for your car’s performance to take care of it regularly and ensure a clean exterior and high functioning interior.
In addition, it’s critical to keep a good coat of wax on the exterior and flush the undercarriage at your local car wash at least twice a month, throughout the winter. With build up from salt and other environmental factors, there could be continued damage and corrosion to your paint and undercarriage – and ultimately, the performance of your vehicle.
Additional Safety Tips
Here’s an extra safety tip for you this winter – keep your car stocked with a winter supply kit! An emergency kit with jumper cables and roadside flares is key. We also recommend some blankets, warm clothes and food that will keep throughout the months in the unfortunate event you get stuck. Prepare your car from inside to outside to keep you safe this winter.
