In effect, given their design and progress of metallurgy, the chassis of modern cars today are less sensitive to rust and corrosion problems than their predecessors.

However, a minimum of attention is required and washing is the basic operation. The first goal is to eliminate the crust of mud and dirt that accumulates over time, in particular in the nooks and crannies, and which may plug the drainage holes which allow evacuating the water infiltrating the vehicle.

The washing also aims to prevent and detect the rust; because even if the metals are of better quality, rust continues to land on favourable places where the metal has been skinned, by projections of stones, for example.

The washing is finally an obligation as soon as your car frequently undergoes the assaults of the salt. The latter, widely used for the removal of snow from roads in winter, is in fact particularly corrosive.

The simplest solution is to regularly take your car to an automatic washing station. It is indeed difficult to achieve a proper cleaning with a simple jet of water because the power of the jet is insufficient to detach the crust acceding to the metal.

Many self-service washing stations have programs including the cleaning of the subframe of the vehicles. You can, prior to the passage in the tunnel of washing, perform a prewash at Jet high-pressure for passages of wheels, under the wings, and the bottom of the body.

In order to ensure that your car can dry after washing, the simplest way is to drive a few kilometers in order to ensure that the flow of air sweeps the bottom; it is ideal to do it in hot, dry weather. Then examine your chassis to detect potential problems. If applicable, a rust proofing treatment will be able to compensate for the wear.
