that sux. I feel for your poor car...

the interior would go first ... you should try to park near the shade ... you could tint your windows so the heat and uv don't mess up your seats and cloth colors....

if you park in the shade, remember not underneath a tree

Well at least you have a white car. White is the best color for resisting UV degradation because the pigment (titanium dioxde) is very opaque and prevents the UV light from penetrating too badly. Still, if you are going to keep the car a long time get a good cover.

-get a dark tint,
-wax your car a few times
-wash your car regularly, especially any sap/bird junk
-try out the car cover. a cover doesn't actually attract as much bad attention as you may think....but it all depends on the area where you park.
