SALT…it helps keep us safe on the snowy roads here in the Northeast. But it also wreaks havoc on our vehicles. Now with winter in full force, we want to remind you how important it is to clear salt and dirt from your wheelchair accessible van…and keep your undercarriage clean. When salt is left on the outside of your vehicle, you can easily see the damage it does to the paint finish. Well imagine what it’s doing to the unseen, forgotten, underside of your van throughout the whole winter. It can cause major body and undercarriage damage. When the salt build-up is left there for too long, rust and corrosion can set in. Metal parts like fuel lines can break, leading to costly repairs.
But this is easy to prevent. Just keep your undercarriage clean. Take your vehicle to the car wash or detailing shop regularly, especially in the winter months, and always order the undercarriage wash. Or if you’re coming into a Bussani Mobility auto shop for a general maintenance check, our service technicians will be happy to spray out the whole undercarriage for you.
Remember that Bussani Mobility runs a full-service, one-stop auto shop. As a valued customer, you have easy access to complete automotive services including general auto upkeep (like oil changes, tune-ups, coolant flushing, and tire alignment) as well as collision and repair work. Plus our knowledgeable technicians are standing by to answer any questions you have about your specialty vehicle and to pass along tried-and-true advice about any automotive concern you have.
