Rust is one of the worst problems you can deal with when it comes to your vehicle. When it first forms, it looks unsightly and causes your car to appear older than it is. If the rust persists, it can cause more serious damage to your vehicle, even making it undrivable over time. Luckily, you can take steps to prevent rust from ever forming.
Wash Your Car
Sure, spending your afternoon at the car wash isn’t what most people consider fun, but spending an hour or two of your time thoroughly washing your vehicle can do wonders for preventing rust. This is especially important during winter months, when salt used to keep roads safe gets kicked onto your car by the vehicles in front of you. When left to sit, that salt quickly becomes problematic. When exposed to salt from the roads or the ocean, wash your car once a week. Otherwise, once a month is sufficient.
Keep Your Car Covered
Whether you use simple car bras for your bumper and headlights, or you choose luxury car covers, keeping your car covered when you aren’t using it protects it from rain, snow and other issues that could cause it to begin rusting. However, if you decide to purchase a car blanket, be sure to purchase one that uses a waterproof car cover material. A cover won’t help if it is holding onto moisture that could be a problem in the first place.
Wax Your Car Regularly
By waxing your car at least twice a year, you prevent gasoline, bird droppings and other problematic materials from settling onto the paint and eventually eating through it. Wax also repels water that causes rust and can prevent your paint from fading.

The new 2019 Kia Forte Koup was recently rolled out at the Detroit Auto Show. It looked less like the previous Forte and more like the highly popular Kia Stinger, which is super “hot.” To poke fun at how it might look pretty exotic on the outside but hasn’t changed much under the hood, the video Kia advertisers displayed was of the Forte outracing a Lamborghini. Offering a whole lot more storage space than the Stinger's two-seat sports car, the 2019 Forte has a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It also gets marks for great gas mileage: the Forte gets 35 mpg coming standard with a manual six-speed option. Read more
