Mercedes Rust – The opinion of road salt corrosion from the Un-Salted of America

I was browsing some Mercedes related YouTube productions and came by this one.  A as a resident of the UK it gave great amusement.  How it must feel to be able to select a vehicle that has never seen road salt and drop like the proverbial ‘Hot Potato’ another that has.  This is an American Mercedes enthusiasts view on vehicles subject to road salt, just imagine what it would be like to have the option to choose a used car that has never seen road salt – so to all in the UK and some parts of Europe – enjoy the video from the Un-Salted of America!….. it made me smile. Laughing
