The paint protectant treatment offers a coat of protection against Houston's, at times, harsh weather conditions. Just like you apply sunblock before going to the beach (and ladies we apply cream every morning to our faces that has at least SPF 15), your vehicle's exterior needs a layer of protection.
However, the sun making those sunspots aren't the only thing to worry about -- acid rain, pollen, and our winged friends do plenty damage as well. Pollen is acidic and can damage your vehicle and wiping the pollen off can create micro scratches due to the hook-like qualities of pollen. It is important to create a regimen for exterior paint maintenance.
Don't wait until you begin to see the damage, as by that time it is usually too late.
Toyota/Lexus/Scion had this to say in a Technical Service Bulletin on Paint:
Title: Acid Rain Paint Finish Damage - Prevention & Repair
Models: All Toyota Lexus and Scion
Date: March 2008
Condition & Case
'Acid Rain' is the result of rainwater and other forms of airborne moisture mixing with atmospheric impurities, often referred to as industrial fallout. The mixing forms varying degrees of corrosive acidic compounds that can settle on exposed surfaces. Depending on geographic location, concentration level, and length of exposure; vehicle paint finish damage can occur. Horizontal surface such as roof, hood, and trunk panels are most vulnerable.
Prevention of Finish Damage
While, Toyota, Lexus, and Scion paint finishes are engineered to look great and provide long-term durability, if not cared for properly they can sustain damage as a result of acid rain exposure. Exposure can occur at any time in the life-cycle of a vehicle, be it transport, storage, or consumer use.
