If you live  in a high-corrosion area

should  take extra  care  to prevent
corrosion.  In  winter, hose  off  the

keep your  vehicle clean  and free  of
mud or accumulations of other mate-
rials. This applies not only to the vis-
ible  surfaces but  particularly  to  the
underside of the vehicle.
