Living in the USA, you must have experience changing weather conditions all around the different states. The unexpected weather not only impacts your day to day life but it also impacts the classy design of your vehicle. Whether you have bought Ford GT, the most expensive car in the automotive industry or you are driving a Ford Fiesta, the car exterior and performance both get affected by the ever-changing weather.

In a country where the weather is fluctuating giving you a taste of all the four seasons, it becomes extremely difficult to give your Ford car the needed attention. The blazing sun of summer, harsh winds of winter and windy rainstorms and thunders cause a vehicle to lose its elegant structure.

Part 1. What's the weather in your city?

Typically, the USA is categorized into five different regions including Northeast, Southwest, Southeast, the west, and the Midwest. On the basis of these locations, the country faces four seasons in the following ways:
  1. Spring: March-May
  2. Autumn: September-November
  3. Summer: June-August
  4. Winter: December -February

The average temperatures of the multiple states around the USA shows that the south-central areas and southeastern states endure the hottest sun during summer. Some of the hottest states of USA include Arizona (53°C), California (57°C), Florida (43°C), Hawaii (37°C) and Nevada (48°C).

The northern, northeastern, midwestern, western mountains and the Great Plains regions suffer the coldest climate during winter. The coldest states of USA include Alaska (having an average temperature of -20 to -30° F in January), North Dakota (-40°F), Maine (-11.1°F) and Minnesota (-30°F).

No matter if it's raining outside or the sun is boiling hot, protecting your Ford car looks next to impossible.

Part 2. How these weather harm the car?

You may not know this but drastic weather such as the heated atmosphere of the summer or the thick snow piled up outside your house can cause more exterior as well as interior damage to your car than you can imagine. The metallic and aluminum car frame can have the following impact when hit by the forces of nature:
  1. Corrosion

During the winter season, salt is scattered on the roads to keep the level of traction at the maximum level. The salt on the road finds it's way up to the chassis or gets stick to the sides, doors and other parts of a vehicle. This salty solution will cause erosion and over time it will lead to rust.

  1. Hail damage

If you are not careful enough rain, hail and thunderstorm can inflict dents on the exterior surface of your Ford. These dents will particularly affect the trunk, hood and the roof of your car.

  1. Sun destruction

Sun can damage your car from inside out. The paint of the car starts to wither when exposed to excessive heat of the sun. Commonly the direct rays of the sun cause the paint of your vehicle to peel off. The paint on your car not only make your car look attractive but also protects it from moisture, rust and dents.

  1. Wind damage

Blowing wind does not have a direct impact on your vehicle. The wind does not move alone, with the splashing wind there is debris, small particles of sand, it may have branches and other elements that can destroy the exterior beauty of your car.

Part 3. What should you do?

Now you know how the changing weather can affect the overall condition of your car. To keep your Ford safe from all types of weather you need to adopt various techniques against the changing climate.
  1. Hot Sun Protection

Protecting your car from the extreme sun was never easier before. But with the availability of Lanmodo car protection cover, you can keep your car safe from the scorching heat of the sun anywhere.

  1. Cold Protection

During cold weather, you need to pay more attention to the engine of the car. Give your vehicle a little jerk every now and then to make the oil running through the engine. Also, check your tailpipe to be certain that it's not frozen out there. Also, equip your car with the winter tires, that will put less pressure on the engine and the battery.

  1. Moisture Protection
