  1. Salt used on roads eats away undercarriage

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)

  2. Northeast salt

    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)
    Hi all, I am looking for some input on whether I should be concerned about all of the winter salt on the undercarriage. I recently brought a certified used 2014 CRV this summer. I previously had a 2005 Element for the last 8 years. I never gave it a carwash and last winter had the heat shield...

    Going to be at the seacoast for quite awhile. What have you used to protect the clear coat , and, keep the salt spray from the ocean from damaging your exterior finish? Looking to protect the exterior of our new 2011 CR-V, before we leave.
