Car + Playa = ???

I was wondering if anyone knows about the long-term effects of playa dust on your car... Horror stories? Worry-reducing stories?

Last year I took a rental. This year I have a new-ish car of my own and I'm concerned that the alkaline properties of the dust will cause some corrosion or damage in the future. I plan on washing the car thoroughly, but I'm more concerned w/ the brakes and engine bits and pieces that perhaps I cannot reach well with a hose.

Any input, guys? Should I just rent a damned car and be done with it?

Thx =)
