Both location and what I do. Lucky that the SF Bayarea is temperate and CalTrans doesn't throw salt here.

Ski and go up to Lake Tahoe and other ski resorts during the winter where CalTrans does throw lots of salt, but I hose down the underside when I get home *EACH* time, as I hate rust. Plus purposely look for fresh rain water puddles coming back home and dive through them.

Other thing is that whenever I'm underneath, spray it with El Cheapo spray can paint purchased form local hardware stores. Load up on their close outs and currently working through a couple of cases of clear lacquer and black primer.

It always amazes me whenever see the underside of a vehicle from the 'salt belt'...all that rust...
