Since it is getting to that time of year again and this being the first winter season with my C-Max, I want to ensure it is maintained as best as possible both inside and out. I'm curious what you all recommend especially for those here in the Midwest/salt-happy areas and keeping rust at bay. Mine came from further south originally and when I installed my Torklift hitch earlier this summer the underbody was immaculate and I'd love to keep it that way. I do have a garage at home I park in but work parking is all uncovered outdoors.


My first immediate thought is there is a full auto car wash close by work that has monthly passes (tops out at $50/mo for the full thing, normally $15 per visit) that I am seriously considering and just run through after each snow/ice and salt session.

Yes definitely.  I wash my car all the time to get the salt off any time I can.  If it warms up just enough for the water not to freeze on contact I'm hosing all the salt off and spraying under as much as I can.  I don't go to a car wash myself, just do it at home and blow out the hose so it doesn't freeze up after use.
