We recently moved to the Pacific Northwest and bought a 2010 Honda Insight. We have a two-car garage, and we keep the car in there most of the day. I drive the car to drop off and pick up my boyfriend at work and to run errands.
Since it rains a lot here (and we are on the ocean so there is often fog or mist), the car is usually wet. We noticed that when we park the car in the garage, it is just as wet the next day as when we left it the previous day.
We tried drying it, but the shammys just left dirty water spots all over the car and windows. A squeegee would damage the vehicle.
Are we putting the car at risk by leaving it wet in the garage? I heard click and Clack say recently that a man who kept his just-washed car in the garage was doing damage because the closed area didn't allow water to evaporate properly.
Should we buy some ShamWows and dry the car completely every day? Should we park it outside so it will dry better? Do we need a giant humidifier for the garage?
