In the midst of another harsh Canadian winter, drivers should consider protecting their vehicles to endure the copious amounts of road salt that’s spread on our roads. Ice melter is a necessary evil – for safe driving and staying sure-footed on sidewalks and driveways. This guide will help you prepare your vehicle and driveway to survive winter and maintain good looks and durability for years to come.
For most people, a car is big purchase so it’s worth maintaining to ensure reliability, appearance and performance during your years of ownership. The average Canadian owns a passenger vehicle for 5-6 years so unless you intend to drive a car until it’s time for the scrap yard, you need to consider its resale value. The greatest factor contributing to resale value is appearance so any sign of rust will have a negative impact.
