so does this mean I win???

Our State government isn't ignoring the problem, but there is LOTS more money in it for them if the cars fall apart faster (bottom 3 in the nation every year in road quality and TONS of salt on the roads every winter) because the big 3 all like to sell us cars!

See I told you a chemist would tell you it is a salt..........

Not really trying to be a smart ass, but as you can see I tend to bring them out of the woods.........

I am impressed at your knowledge also..........but gee, it sure sounds to me like you just cut and pasted from Wikipedia:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/newrepl...reply&p=165520

Here is a cut and paste from the first paragraph from the link above....

Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is an ionic compound of calcium and chlorine. It is highly soluble in water and it is deliquescent. It is a salt that is solid at room temperature, and it behaves as a typical ionic halide. It has several common applications such as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and in cement. It can be produced directly from limestone, but large amounts are also produced as a by-product of the Solvay process.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, now who is the smart ass?

Not as corrosive as Sodium Chloride, but still salt.

amy PFFFFTTTT to Dare.

Not all northern states use salt on the roads. The midwest may but out here, we don't. Rust isn't any more of a problem for us than down in the humid south.

Northern States Cars

Due to the weather and the roads being salty for large parts of the year in states like Illinois, Michigan etc, do cars in General rust alot underneath?
Im thinking of buying that Jeep in Chicago but the underside looks a little rusty and I was wondering if in general you should steer clear of "cold weather states" if possible for the salty roads reason.
