Now that winter is here, it's important to protect your vehicle from snow, ice, and salt. Salt can pose a serious problem for your vehicle and significantly reduce its value. Keep your car protected from salt corrosion with these tips from Brown's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram shoppers.

If salt remains on the undercarriage or surface of your vehicle, it can damage the finish and cause rust to develop. When salt remains on the undercarriage of your vehicle, it could damage the drivetrain components. It's also suggested to avoid driving through deep snow or puddles that may contain salt.

To help prevent salt from damaging your vehicle, wash it at least every 10 days, and only wash it when the temperature is warmer than 40 degrees. If you wax your vehicle every six months, it will give it a strong protective coating. Wax your car just before winter sets in to protect the paint from salt corrosion.
