Think of it as a security blanket that guards against sun, rain, sleet, ice, snow, dust, pollen, bird droppings and punishing temperatures from -40 degrees to +194 degrees! These car covers slip on and off easily and have elastic bottoms for a secure fit. Your vehicle will stay cleaner, and you won't have to wash it as often. Made of durable, mildew-proof polyethylene with interlocked seams.
I bought a medium last year. A couple of days ago they said on Wednesday we'd get between 12-18 inches. I put the cover on my car. The snow slid off the cover and onto the hood. I'm getting the bigger one now because I think it'll fit more of my car. Chevy Cavelier. I loved that the snow slid off the cover because I didn't have to scrape the roof or windows. All were perfect.
I also put bowl covers (looks like small shower caps) over my side mirrors and a couple of tape strips to hold them on. I also put scotch tape over my door locks so they don't freeze. Make sure you make a tab on the tape for easy removal. I also put a few strips of tape on the cover and the contact area of the car just to keep the wind from blowing it around.About six small strips total. My windows were clean and clear. It's so worth the cost. I felt silly putting it on when there was no snow but the next morning I was so glad I did. The hooks fit into the wheel wells so easily. I'm 66 if I can do it so can you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
These covers must be considered only for occasional use if used outside. I bought two for cars in my drveway. The one in direct sunlight lasted about three months and then disintegrated into small pieces. The one in shade lasted about a month longer. They look good, but the material is so thin my finger alnost pulled through it while carefully putting it on the car for the first time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
