Spring is a perfect time
to do something about rust.
Rusting is a year-round
problem, and corrosive con-
ditions have become a lot
worse in the last five years.
If you live where salt is
used to melt ice on the roads,
that is speeding upcorrosion
on your car. If you live in the
country, it's the calcium
chloride that's spread on dirt
roads to hold down dust.
And corrosive chemicals in
the air are causing rust in
every part of America.
We're doing something
to help prevent rust on the
new cars we're building.
Meanwhile, you can do
something about reducing
rust on your car.
It's important to wash your
car often. Use a mild soap
and lukewarm or cold water.
Please don't neglect
the underside of your car.
The worst rusting happens
from the inside out. That's

because salt, slush, and
even mud tend to collect in
the crevices underneath the
car, in the door creases, and
inside the fenders. Moisture
gets trapped in those places
and causes rust. So try to
wash the underside of your
car, too. In winter, if you can,
and at the first opportunity
in spring. Even if ifs only a
few times a year, that would
help some.
If your car gets dented,
scratched, or chipped, try
to get it repaired as soon
as possible. Even a "small"
scratch is bad. Because once
a car starts to rust, the dam-
age spreads fast. The paint
around a dent or scratch can
look okay, but rust is spread-
ing underneath. In the long
run, ifs cheaper to fix the
car right away.
A lot of people think that
parking a car in a heated
garage during the winter
will help prevent rust. But
it's just the opposite. Cold
slows down the rusting pro-
cess, as it does most chem-
ical reactions.

We're doing more now to
protect GM cars from rust.
For one thing, were using
more rust-resistant mate-
rials, including different
types of zinc-coated steel, in
places where rust usually oc-
curs. Also, our new paint
primers and the way we
apply them are designed to
provide a thorough finish,
even on some parts of the
car you can't see.
Our goal is to protect
your car so that it lasts
longer and gives you the
most value. And fighting
rust helps.
