What can road salt do to your vehicle? On top of promoting rust, it can damage the clear coat on top of the paint. In severe cases, it can even impact the mechanics, leaving you with costly repair bills. One of the biggest things you can do is avoid driving through deep snow whenever possible so that it does not become packed into the undercarriage.
