    Nope, not heated. Although the heat may seem convenient for comfort and will help the fluids run better at startup, the salt/snow mix will melt on the car once it's in the garage. Salty water and moisture causes rust, and heat accelerates oxidation too. The only way to avoid this issue would be to thoroughly wash every crevice of the car where salt would be every time you put the car back in the garage.

    You're not the only one who's gotten snow lately. The area I live in has gotten snow too.

    This is in Florida right? I swear this weather further up north where I'm at makes me want to go either southern Florida or Hawaii, to the region of those states where no snow and no cold temperatures around 0 degrees are highly guaranteed.

    You really think that car goes out in the winter to get salt? Seriously

    Well I wouldn't drive it in the winter, but I wouldn't know if he had the common sense to leave it at home. If he were to drive it in the winter I mean yeah it'd get covered in salt but if it stays at home then a heated garage should be fine.
