• Maintain a regular wash and wax schedule. Dirt and environmental debris on the exterior of your vehicle can bake into and scratch the car’s paint. When you wash your vehicle, you clean off most of the particles that damage the exterior. Don’t neglect a good wax job. Waxing the car protects the exterior and prevent debris and water spots from marring the surface. Wax your vehicle at the beginning of each new calendar season.
• Park in the shade as often as possible. If you are not able to park in the shade, use a sunshade in the window to protect the dash and the interior. Not only are you protecting your car, but you are protecting yourself from a scorching interior as well.
• Use a car cover when you park your car. A cover shields the car from the sun’s damaging rays, and dirt and debris that flies around in the air.
