Any suggestions for cars that are driven through the winter?
regular hose down to keep the salt off.

i always give the areas under the fenders a good scrubbing when i first buy a car because the dirt collects under there, and it gets pretty thick after years of use - prone to corrosion. then just keep it clean.

i have yet to see a better rust preventative than good ol' (used) engine oil. i once saw a 25 year old mini with a floor pan as fresh as the day it left the factory - it had been treated with oil for years.
