using a car cover

looking to get a car cover for my forte.. was wondering if anyone have any experience with Car Covers | Waterproof car cover | Indoor car covers | Outdoor car covers

they seem to have a sale going on and the 5 layer one seems interesting for an outdoor use

any suggestion

For long-term storage car covers are OK, but if it's a daily driver I'd say forget it.

1.) It will be a PITA to drag it off every morning and put it on every night.
2.) Such repeated putting on and off will drag it across the fine dust layer accumulated on the paint from normal driving and weather conditions, scratching the paint.
3.) If the car is wet, you don't want the cover sticking to the car holding the moisture next to the paint.
