These rays are bad for your car and can lead to the fading of your paint job, cracking in your rubber trim as well as your tires and can even cause damage to your interior. If you have the room, it is always recommended that if you are covering up your car while you are not using it, you should keep it inside. Even if it is covered outside, it is still susceptible to the damaging UV rays.

One thing to note when you are covering your car is to make sure that if you are covering it outside that the cover is nice and tight. If you are living in a windy area and the cover isn’t tight, the wind will make the cover flap constantly. That constant flapping with make the paint on your car wear out quickly over time.

An interesting fact about UV rays is that they can be more damaging to your car depending on the color of your car. For example, if you have a red car, it will be more susceptible to fading if left out in the sun for long periods of time. Other reasons to make sure that your car is covered and put somewhere out of the sun, is simply just to prevent the surface from getting dusty. Dust and other particles that land on or are attracted to your car’s surface can be corrosive and even leave scratches on the surface if left on checked.
