Can I use a cheap tarp as a car cover?

Don't Go Cheap on Your Car Cover

Car covers are a wise investment, especially for cars you aren't driving daily - or that may be older and need to be protected. Whatever you do, do not just get a simple plastic tarp and think that will protect you car. Car covers are specifically designed to let water run off and they are made of materials that will not degrade in weather, heat or humidity. Tarps trap water and have been known to melt onto cars. They can cause signifigant damage to your paint job and since they can trap pooled water, you actually run a higher risk of rusting on your car.
