I feel for you Jeff. It really depends on how much snow you get in your area and how the roads are treated as a result. If it is salt, you will need to rinse the undercarriage out often to slow down the development of rust. Notice I said slow won't eliminate it. Alternatively, you can perhaps get your undercarriage treated.....better yet do it yourself so you know it gets good coverage. It won't be cheap but it will be the best protection for the steel. Even if you do treat the undercarriage, rinse the salt away often.

Your interior is probably going to take a beating. Salt and sand will be brutal on you carpet. You will definitely want to put in a plastic/rubber mat in the front that will catch most of the particles. Otherwise, vacuum, vacuum, vacuum so that the sand and salt don't get trapped in the carpet.

You could always move south as a last resort!

Good Luck.
