When a car owner lives at or near the beach, there are a few considerations that he or she must undertake to ensure his or her vehicle’s longevity. For starters, the ocean and its elements, can cause severe damage to vehicles over long periods of time. The salt water can cause severe rust build-up.
Surprisingly, the worst part of the year that their car will have to weather is during the colder seasons. There tends to be more dew during colder seasons, which is deposited all around a car that is parked outside. These salt water dew drops are the largest factor in rust buildup.
Another culprit that can bring rust is ocean spray. For those who live and drive several miles away from the oceanfront, there is no need to worry.
