How to protect your car from road salt

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Road salt is spread across the area to melt ice and protect motorists. But it also could cost drivers a lot of money if they don't clean the salt off of their cars.

Ty Grant is the Store Manager at Pugh's Tires & Service Center. He says that salt not only can damage the paint on your car, but also corrode parts in the undercarriage, which can cost you thousands of dollars.

"Any exposed belts, wires, break lines, your tires, your rims," said Grant. "The salt will actually get on your rims and actually oxidize the rims."

The best way to prevent this is to get a pressure wash for the undercarriage, and go through the car wash for the exterior.
