How can you prevent rust? Toyota of Clermont has answers!
First things first – you’ll save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress if you use our Orlando Toyota Service tips to prevent rust from the get to. Luckily, there are cheap and easy ways to do it yourself (or our Toyota Service techs can give you a hand, if you prefer!). Here are some of our best suggestions for preventing this costly problem:
- Wash your car! You should be washing your car on a regular basis anyway to keep your paint in good shape, but this is especially true if you live in an area where your ride is exposed to salt. According to our Toyota Service techs, salt not only ruins the paint on your car but also can be the precursor to a nasty case of rust. If you live by the ocean or in a part of the country where you get snow, be sure to wash your vehicle regularly!
- Our Orlando Toyota Service technicians also recommend following up that wash with a coat of wax. We sell it here at Toyota of Orlando, and our techs can help you choose the best bet for your car. Wax will seal of the car (so to speak) and make it difficult for moisture to form rust on the body. It’ll also protect your paint, especially from the scorching summers we face here!
- Never leave spills on the inside of the car. You may think it’s no big deal if something clear spills in the backseat or on the floor, but the liquid can seep down and create rust under the carpet or upholstery! Be sure to clean and dry spills before they cost you a ton of money!
