A good car cover is a necessity no matter where you live. But if your car gets covered with snow regularly this time of year, a quality car cover can add years to the life of your paint and finish — something our intrepid Hands-On Reviewer Mike Bumbeck learns the hard way every winter. Not to mention your tires, molding, bumpers, and more. But car covers suffer wear and tear too, so you should replace them every couple of years regardless.
But as Bumbeck explained in his exclusive Hands-On Review of Car Covers, an expensive car cover is really only necessary for garage-kept collectibles. If your car, truck, or SUV lives outside year-round, even if you cover it regularly, it's time to re-up its protection with a new car cover from Amazon. They're inexpensive but quality-made, and there's one for most every kind of vehicle on the road. Pick up a new one today. From $32.49.
