What are some ways to prevent your car's paint from fading?

I live in Florida, and I've noticed the paint starting to fade in my car after only a few years of ownership. I want to make sure my car stays in good shape for as long as I have it—so are there any ways to prevent this from happening?

Good on you for wanting to keep your car looking good! If you want to keep your car’s paint from fading, these tips should get the job done:
  • Always find covered parking or use a car cover
  • Wash your car regularly and hand-dry it
  • Keep your car waxed
  • Don’t use cleaning products that aren’t approved for vehicles
  • Above all, keep the car out of the sun’s UV rays as much as possible
Following these tips should keep your car in tip-top condition and may even help improve or maintain its retail value.
Moreover, you could always try to find an extended warranty that would cover excessive fading or peeling of your paint.
