Rust Protection for Beach Driving

Hi All

Is there any consensus on whether there is a need for rust protection for beach driving. I'll probably only get three or four trips a year and will clean thoroughly after.

Thanks

Re: Rust Protection for Beach Driving

Tooves, you'll get a lot of opinions. My 2c - I don't do anything. I'm sceptical about the electronic rust protection. I believe the manufacturing process has come along way since the 70's. The panels are pretreated to prevent rust. This is why manufacturers now give rust warranties. Clean your car well incl underbody before you go and after you get back, don't drive in beach water and you shouldn't have any problem. There is another thread about the wheel hubs corroding pretty badly. I would reccommend you read that and take their advice. Still haven't taken my wheels off to check mine, too scared.

Re: Rust Protection for Beach Driving

I've never depended on anything more than what the factory provided. The next good rainfall after a trip to the beach I take advantage of Mother Nature's gift, and drive through a couple of deep puddles.

I think the folks who drive in areas that get a lot of snow get more salt on the underbodies than we get on a trip to the beach.
