Run your car through a good car wash once a week during the winter.

I knew a guy that had a Tacoma and they had to replace his frame for him. I'd say that had more to do with inferior steel being used than normal wear, tear and rust.



Living in the Northeast I have 2 older vehicles that are terribly rusted and are quickly approaching the end of their lives. My fun car has never seen a Winter road and that one is fine.

The salt they put on the roads in the Winter really eats the cars.



An old timer mechanic suggested spraying a combination of kerosene and Used motor oil on the underside of my vehicles, I didn't do it but wish I had given it a try.



I would say that something is better than nothing to guard against rust.

Toyota replaced everything. The frame suspension brake lines. Either way if you live in areas where itís moist and snow with salt on the roads your car will rust out eventually. Even if itís new. The only consolation is that by then the car is on its 3/4/5th owner
