Leaving cars outside of garage

I was wondering if leaving a car (brand new) overnight outside and not covered in like a garage would damage the car? Some mornings its all frosted over, will that do anything to the paint etc?

THANKS

I hear the proper way is to wrap it with saran wrap for the first 1k km's

There is no way that a car company can spend millions of dollars on research to find ways to prevent the elements of nature from harming the exterior of your vehicle.

They leave it up to you, the consumer, to be their beta tester.

Thank you for asking this important question.

Yeah your cars value will drop SIGNIFICANTLY. Find a place to park it under cover or it will weather really fast.

don't think it's worse than when the car goes through the shipping process or at dealership lots/compound.

You're going to get a lot of nasty sap on your car if you plan to leave it a long while under trees. It's going to be like trees jizzed all over your ride and you're going to have to clean that up.

Plug in a few heaters and have them blow on the side of your car overnight to prevent that morning frost. Make sure you have more than one heater blowing on all the panels of the car at the same time too, nothing worse than morning frost

you can do what a lot of asian parents do, a tradition passed down from generation. They like to wrap remote controls with saran wrap. I think you should do the same with the car.

I've seen cars with cardboard on their windshields to prevent frosting.. should work with the whole car.

Instead of saran wrap I think you should build a garage around the car

What you could do is apply a nice thick coat of wax. But make sure not to buff it off. Leave it in its swirl pattern. The morning dew and frost should just slide right off. When it comes time to sell the car, just pressure wash the wax off. If you don't have one of those an SOS pad should work just the same

go Canadian tire and buy a tent. Or best yet, spray hot water all over your car in the morning to get rid of the frost!
