Vehicles in New Hampshire are subjected to a variety of things that can cause rust: salt air, salt on the roads, and other ice-melting products that keep the roads less slick in the winter. Exposure to the elements over time is also a large factor – on a long enough timeline, nearly all cars will experience rust at some point!
Not only is rust unsightly but it can cause structural damage, which generally starts at the lower six inches on the inside of a panel. This is the area that takes the brunt of splashes from the tires, so it’s not usually visible until the damage has gotten more extensive. Seam rust is also very common. This happens when salty water from the winter roadways gets splashed up and seeps into the cracks and crevices of the seams. Once there’s structural damage, the safety of your car could be compromised, so it’s important to bring your car in for rust repair.
