How to Protect Your Jaguar From Salt Damage

Road salt damage to cars is a real thing, and if you want to keep your Jaguar looking good on the Mason roads, you need to follow these tips.

  • Wash your vehicle: The best thing you can do is wash your vehicle after you’ve driven through salted roads. Washing your vehicle removes the salt from your vehicle and keeps it looking good. Just be sure to wash it every 10 days or so to keep the salt from digging into the paint and causing damage.
  • Wash during the day: Washing your vehicle at night or when it’s too cold can do more harm than good, because the water could freeze and create more salt damage to cars. Instead, wash during the day when it has a better chance to dry and wash it when the outside Fort Mitchell, KY temperature is over 40 degrees.
  • Dry your vehicle well: After you have washed your vehicle, make sure to dry it well. Open doors and trunks and wipe down any resting water. If you don’t, it could force your doors and trunk to freeze shut.
  • Watch where you drive: If you can help it, avoid driving through deep piles of snow. This could become packed in the undercarriage of your vehicle and cause corrosion that could be pricey to fix.
