We all love keeping our cars in good shape, especially after a new purchase, but doing so can be difficult. Threats to the condition of your vehicle are everywhere in nature. Ultraviolet rays come down from the sun, and acid rain destroys the clear coat of paint over months and years. The wind-blown sand leaves tiny scratches and swirls on every body panel. Animal manure can cause lasting damage if not washed away in time. If you just want to cool down, you can choose an SUV half cover, which can be well done by blocking the windows to cool down and isolate ultraviolet rays.
However, if you're using a car cover outdoors or in the garage (or both), these annoyances can be alleviated. The cover acts as a protective barrier, and fortunately, most are relatively inexpensive.
Before you start shopping, you need to determine some basics, from the size and material of the cover to how it will attach to the car. There are also different styles to consider.
The first factor in buying a car cover should be the size. Aftermarket covers often come in "universal" sizes to fit a range of smaller or larger vehicle segments. Automakers often offer custom, comfortable covers for your specific vehicle as a dealer option, but these cover a higher price.
Material composition is also important. Most car covers will use an outer protective layer of hard synthetic fabric and an inner soft cotton layer to be gentle to the paint, with varying layers in between for added protection. Simple coverings can be obtained with just a single layer of synthetic or cotton fabric. They are a suitable option for short-term storage in the garage, but not for long-term storage. Also, keep in mind that car covers offer varying degrees of water resistance, but most are not completely waterproof.
The cloth cover is fastened to the car using a rope or elastic band. The elastic option allows for easier application and removal, but it's also easier to slip or fall off if left in windy conditions. If your vehicle has a radio antenna protruding from the body, you may also want to find a cover with holes to accommodate it. Some special covers also consist of a plastic sheet that doesn't touch the car but creates a vacuum-sealed air bubble to keep dirt out. This bubble type is mostly used by die-hard car collectors to meticulously preserve decades-old machines.
It is important to make sure your vehicle has been washed before installing the cover. Any contamination left on the painted surface can get trapped under the hood and can cause scratches where the cotton touches each body panel.
