i used a full car cover for a few years. i found that it wore off the
clearcoat on all the spots that it rubbed on, and self destructed from sun
rot in only a couple of years even though they were the most expensive ones
for uv protection.

Living here in sunny Phoenix and approaching the summer I'm wondering what
are some of the better options for covering my 2008? What I'm looking for is
something simply and hopefully not too expensive but effective. Summers here
are often in the 100's and 110's! I'm looking to keep the inside of the car
As I see it there are about 3 options. First is the windshield covers -
we've all seen them - you put them up when you are leaving the car and they
are propped up by the sun visors usually. Cheap and easy to do I think I
should get one of these no matter what for those quick trips to say the
grocery store when the other options seem a bit much...
The second kind I've seen seem to be compromise between the windshield
screens and the full car cover in that they attempt to only cover the
windshield, roof, back window and side windows. Seem like a good compromise
in that they would stop the interior from heating up by the sun shinning
through the side or read windows. Additionally I have a transparent top.
Seems like this solution would keep the interior cooler. Cons: It's probably
a little more time consuming/cumbersome to put on.
Full car cover. While these obviously cover the most and probably protect
the most, I can't picture stopping at a grocery store, for instance, and
going through the bother of pulling out and putting on one of these. Then
again, it'd be good to get one of those to put on when I park my car for the
full day while at work.
I just don't want to have to buy all of them!
Can anybody share their experiences with these types of car covers...
