Winter can certainly put your auto maintenance habits to the test. Without adequate preventive care, a single snowy season can shorten your vehicle’s lifespan and deteriorate its appearance. In the Twin Cities, where most roadways are covered in salt, one of the most prevalent winter vehicle concerns is rust development. Corrosion will not only mar the body of your automobile, but it can also damage its internal components.
If you’re like most drivers, you might not consider a fender bender cause for serious concern. But that assumption could cause major problems for your vehicle. Even a low-speed auto accident can result in internal damage to your car or truck, which may not be readily detectable.
It happens to every vehicle owner at some point: You walk outside, look over your vehicle, and notice a dent, scratch, or rust formation that appeared out of nowhere. You assess the extent of the damage, determine it’s only minor, and then question if it’s even worth pursuing auto body repairs. After all, if it’s just a minor scratch or ding — how much can that really hurt the value of your vehicle?
Winter is just around the corner in the Twin Cities, and you know what that means: months of ice, snow, and poor road conditions that put your vehicle at risk. But even when you’re not on the road, your automobile may be subject to ice-related damage that can cause growing problems if it’s not addressed.

That said, a variety of other factors play into the type of parts you may want to select, including longevity, durability, warranty, and of course, overall cost.
Does your car need touchup paint? Perhaps you were in a collision, maybe the paint is starting to peel, or maybe the body of your vehicle has developed a bit of rust?
