How to Protect Your Vehicle This Winter

November 17, 2022

The fall weather we know and love never lasts long enough, and the current dropping temperatures make that evident. You may already be experiencing winter weather conditions where you live, but no matter what, the official season is right around the corner. Ahead of any potential damage from snow, salt, slush, or mud, we’ve put together a list of ways that you can protect your vehicle so that it stays looking and feeling like new this winter.

Rust Protection

22_Nov_Blog_Image_Rust_Protection_3Genuine Ziebart rust protection is a sure-fire way to protect your vehicle from any damage that’s brought on by rust and corrosion. Our professionally trained and certified technicians will ensure that all vulnerable areas of your vehicle – including the trunk, hood, and all body panels – are sealed. A thick, abrasion-resistant sealant is also applied to your vehicle’s undercarriage, protecting its most exposed areas from moisture, dirt and debris, road salt, and more.

Ceramic Z-Gloss® Paint Coating


Over time, natural elements damage and break down your vehicle’s clearcoat, which affects the paint underneath. Adding Ceramic Z-Gloss® Paint Coating to your car or truck will add another layer of protection, helping to protect your paint from potential damage, and also from UV rays and the extreme temperatures we can experience during colder months.

Ceramic Z-Gloss® is backed by a 10-year warranty. It repels water, dirt, and debris, making your vehicle much easier to clean while preserving its vibrancy and shine. 

Z-Shield® Paint Protection Film

The film adheres to your vehicle’s paint without affecting its appearance or color. It’s nearly invisible and wraps around curved surfaces to prevent minor scratches, scrapes, and paint chips.

Complete Detailing

Having a professional interior and exterior detailing service performed on your vehicle regularly will help rid your car or truck of any winter leftovers, preventing damage to its surfaces and floor boards due to snow, slush, and road salt. Fabric protection will help further preserve your fabric and upholstery, preventing stains and making messes easier to clean. Adding on a Germ Defender® service will also remove germs and bacteria from all surfaces for up to 90 days, keeping you and your passengers safe during commutes and holiday travels in peak cold and flu season.
