Congratulations – you just bought a new car! While you likely feel great about your new ride, there’s at least one person who wants to destroy it: Mother Nature. That’s right: Nature has set up a virtual smörgåsbord of traps to rust, melt, fade, and dent your brand new vehicle the second you drive it out of the dealership.
No matter where you live in the world, there’s something out to get your car. If you live where it snows, you’ll deal with road salt, which can corrode your brake lines and rust out the underside of your car. If you live where it’s windy, your car will be battered with particles that can wear away paint over time.
How about sun exposure? Unless you live in Alaska, that’s a threat we all face 365 days per year. Add things like bird droppings, bugs, and mold, and it may feel like there’s no escape for your poor car.
Don’t worry – This infographic from Alan's Factory Outlet illustrates 15 common natural hazards your car may encounter and offers actionable steps you can take to avoid damage from each.
