Here at our Virginia Chevy dealer, we know that passionate motorists will go to great lengths to care for and protect their vehicles. For many aficionados, particularly those who have fallen head over heels for a fine American muscle car like the 2017 Camaro, this means tucking their vehicle away when winter weather arrives.
If you plan on covering up your vehicle for the season—or for parts of it—it’s important to make sure that your vehicle is clean beforehand. A thorough detailing will remove messes from the interior to prevent a musty smell, as well as dust and grime from the exterior that could cause trouble beneath a car cover.
Once your car has been thoroughly detailed, it’s time to cover it up. If that sounds pretty simple, that’s because it is—but only once you’ve chosen the right cover for your vehicle and circumstances!
When you think of the right fit, chances are that your first thoughts are in regards to sizing. Virginia drivers will need more than just a cover that fits over their 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, though; they’ll also need a cover that’s right for their purposes!
If you’re storing your vehicle indoors, a light cover is typically enough to protect against dust and any gentle bumps in your garage. In this case, there’s really not much benefit in choosing a heavy outdoor cover.
When your car will be covered up outdoors, though, you’re up against a whole new range of potential hazards. From rain and snow to UV rays, bird droppings, and stray stones, outdoor covers are built to offer sturdier protection against the elements. Choosing the right cover will consistently offer better results, so a heavier cover is worth the extra cost when you’re expecting to store your car outdoors for any amount of time.
While a specialty car cover will do the trick for your Camaro’s exterior and interior, you’ll want to speak with one of our certified mechanics if you have plans to store your vehicle for long stretches. Depending on the amount of time, it may be in your best interests to drain fluids or equip a battery tender. For more information on long-term storage, or to schedule a thorough detailing before breaking out the car cover, be sure to contact Pohanka Chevrolet online or to call us at (703) 968-6677!
