    Cars didn't used to last long enough for the paint to fade.

    Good point. When I was a kid in the 1970s, a 30-year-old car was an antique, not a beater.

    I remember my parents budgeting for a new car every five years, and they were not profligate about spending so it must've been necessary.

    I had my Acura for 10 years and the paint was starting to fade. In its defense, I never had a garage and lived 3 miles from the beach for about three of those years so it was exposed to a lot of salt. I heard Honda uses biodegradable paint, but that may be an old husbands tale.

    It occurs mostly in areas that treat the roads for ice.
