    Default Professional advice on car cover

    Hi everyone. Is car cover an effective thing? I own a city 2015 only driven for 2 months.

    1. My car is parked outside in open 24 hours a day.

    2. I cover it up only at night.

    3. It's a pain in *** to cover and uncover the car.

    4. I cannot clean the car and cover every time I use it.

    5. Cover does not stop the moisture.

    My questions are:-

    Why do we use car cover ? Is it because of cold weather, fog, humidity, rain or sun?

    I suspect that every time I put the cover on and off it scratches the dirt on cars body leaving minor scratches.

    So should I use a cover or not ?
    If not then paint work will stay fine if car is parked outside?

    Thank you for reading such a long post :-)

    Regards.

    covering only at night means you are just protecting the car from mist in winter nights
    if the car is still wet in the morning when u remove the cover, its totally useless
    do share the car cover pic. is it waterproof
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    No brother it is not water proof and water is trapped under it when I remove it. The cover is quite heavy and difficult to fold/ unfold.
    Does cold weather/ mist have an effect on body?
    If I leave my car in open but take regular care of it with wax/ sealant etc. Then is it fine ?

    Thank you.

    If it's not water proof than it can only protect your car from cat and bird droppings I guess. Get a water proof cover it will also be dust proof. Secondly never rub car cover with body. The apperantly correct way to remove cover is fold it from left and right side up to roof, than start folding it from bonet to roof and than trunk. At the end lift it from car. While covering just do the reverse of it.
