TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *How to Prevent Rust on Your Car

You've just bought a beautiful new car, and you want to keep it looking beautiful and new for as long as you can. You've seen other cars that once looked so pretty when they were new, but now they look old, and they have a lot of rust. You wonder if it is possible to prevent rust on your new car.

Almost all cars are going to have rust sometime. The complex sheet metal work on cars and countless little nooks and crannies make many cars rust magnets. Although car makers have taken steps to slow rust, most of their controls have proved inadequate at best, or been failures at worst. What can you, as a car owner, do?

First you need to be aware of the potential of rust to three areas specifically: the engine and trunk compartments; the frame and chassis sub structure; and painted surfaces.

The paint on your car will take a constant beating from the elements. You can notice early signs of rust in the form of lumps, bumps, and scratches to the paint. These imperfections can turn into large bubbles that can take your paint off.

As for as your frame and chassis, there are countless metal devices, such as hinges, exhaust and control systems, window frames, braces, bumpers, hitches, and other metal items that are constantly attacked by salt, water, air, and other contaminants.

Rust and corrosion can cause leaks in the air intake system in your engine and trunk components. This can reduce their capacity.
