Subaru Forester: Corrosion protection / Most common causes of corrosion

The most common causes of corrosion are:

  • The accumulation of moisture retaining dirt and debris in body panel sections, cavities, and other areas.
  • Damage to paint and other protective coatings caused by gravel and stone chips or minor accidents.

Corrosion is accelerated on the vehicle when:

  • It is exposed to road salt or dust control chemicals, or used in coastal areas where there is more salt in the air, or in areas where there is considerable industrial pollution.
  • It is driven in areas of high humidity, especially when temperatures range just above freezing.
  • Dampness in certain parts of the vehicle remains for a long time, even though other parts of the vehicle may be dry.
  • High temperatures will cause corrosion to parts of the vehicle which cannot dry quickly due to lack of proper ventilation.
