Avoid Rust Under Your Car

Rust On Car
Many Phoenix area drivers likely have not thought about the rust under their car. This is likely because rust mostly forms in climates where it’s wet and damp and in Arizona, the dry weather typically doesn’t cause as much rust on vehicles. However, even if you’re in a dry climate, it’s entirely possible to still have rust under your car and run into other rust issues.


But, what can you do to ensure that your vehicle can last as long as possible to tackle your Glendale adventures? Today, the experts at Rocky's Auto Credit will help you learn how to prevent rust on your car and even go over potential rust sprays available for your car! Discover all the maintenance tips and tricks we have to offer with our team.

How to Prevent Rust on Your Car

Whether you’ve got a family-friendly SUV that you regularly take on cross-country road trips or you just regularly commute around Tempe in a fuel-efficient vehicle, it’s important to ensure that you do everything you can to prevent your vehicle from rusting. Rust can eventually compromise your vehicle’s components that allow you to stay safe on the roads. Let’s take a look at how to prevent rust on your car below:

  • Regularly Clean Your Vehicle: As you drive around Arizona, sand and other dust particles begin to accumulate and can break down your vehicle’s paint, especially as the hot sun cooks it on. Regularly washing your vehicle will remove those particles that are damaging your vehicle’s paint.
  • Rust Spray for Cars: Most vehicles come with factory undercoating that can protect them from the elements. But, as the vehicle gets driven, you’ll want to take it somewhere to get it protected again with a rust spray for cars. Most rust sprays are made of a wax or oil coating that’ll protect your vehicle’s frame.
  • Address Rock Chips: It’s almost inevitable that you’ll get rock chips all across your vehicle as you drive. These rock chips expose the metal underneath the paint in your vehicle and in the event that you’re somewhere that’s wet or humid, your vehicle will begin to rust in those exposed areas.
  • Pay Attention To Parking: Even in Arizona, there may be some wet grass or other damp surfaces that you park your vehicle on. Pay attention to where you’re parking and avoid these areas if possible to reduce the risk of rust forming on your vehicle.
