GM car cover

The dealer is offering me a car cover for 200.00 and the msrp for 350.00 I dont use it in the garage but may out and about, one question is do they have provisions for cable and lock and who owns one and how do they like it I have heard mixed reviews?

I did buy one but the instructions say to let the paint cure for 3 months before using. I have a garage but want to protect it from stuff (kids, animals and dust) from winter storage. They have a draw string so I guess you could put a cable thru it but it may scratch it. Hope this helps. 200 is a good deal. I paid 300+tax at the dealer.

I wouldnt put that on my car if it was free, go look at it, like a windbreaker or tarp with seams to rough up your paint.

I found some decent ones from empire. This cover was a replacement cover for a custom cover that cost three times as much and started leaking water and collecting dust under the cover in less than a year. My Empire cover is 4 months old, has survived numerous strong thunderstorms and seering Texas sun, and so far is exceeding my expectations. I have 3 cars under cover, soon the other two will be covered by Empire.
