    hmmm not sure :/ .....company usually claims that paint is uv light protected but its pakistan we are talking abt ......they're other factors that lead to damage like rain and dust .....according to temp here in pakistan ....i myself believe that paint does get damage if a person parks his car always in sunlight for a long period of time ...havent experience it yet though :/

    Wax your car before taking it into sunlight, with a UV protectant wax.

    If your car is waxed weekly, then there is nothing to worry as long as you are using a good quality car wax.

    the above is true - and never ever try to clean your car with a cloth when the bodywork is blazing hot. It will for sure damage the finish. Good glaze and waxing will keep the oils in the finish and keep it looking new.

    The bits you should worry about are the plastic bits.

    direct sunlight will ruin car paint. My 2005 corolla had its boot repainted because that was the part that would normally stick out of the garage. And there were cracks on the pain due to this
    Now i always cover it with car cover.

    yes it does effect, specially if you get it cleaned regularly while body is hot...
    my car cleaner in office used to clean car with wet cloth in extreme sunlight of june/july mostly in noon around 2-3 PM and result was a big faded patch on hood after couple of weeks
    car was 94 civic, black color.
