The quick answer is YES. If the water spots are left untreated it can cause damage in the long run.
Water spots left on a vehicle over time will eventually etch into the clear coat and possibly the paint.
When this happens, it won’t be an easy fix. That’s why the best way to stop this is through preventive measures.
Such as wiping the vehicle down after rain or by waxing or getting a protective paint sealant such as ceramic coating.
The beauty part about ceramic coating is that it has hydrophobic properties which will repeal rain and water.
