The XCAR Vehicle Cover arrived in a cardboard box to protect it from getting damaged during shipment. We also received a storage bag for the cover. Instructions included information about installation, warnings, and how to care for the cover.
Prior to putting the vehicle cover on my Subaru, I washed my car and removed any remaining dust with an electric leaf blower. The length of my Subaru is about 185 inches, but the cover is designed for cars up to 200 inches. The XCAR logo made it easy to identify the front of the cover. There are also tags on the inside.
There is elastic around the bottom, but it’s recommended that you secure the cover using the provided braided steel cable and lock. To secure the cover to your car, you can use the grommet holes that are located on both sides of the cover. A trunk loop that attaches to the trunk latch is also located on the back part of the cover.
For cars that do not have retractable antennas, you can use the provided patch. After you put the cover on your car, you can place the patch where the antenna touches the cover. I didn’t use the patch yet because we’ll likely also use the cover for Matt’s RX-7.
We also received XCAR Wind Protectors to add additional options for securing the cover in high winds. These will also work on covers for grills, boats, and outdoor furniture.
Overall, I think the cover will work great on my Subaru. Our shop gets very dusty when Matt works on wood projects, so I like that I can keep it clean and dust-free.
Our Virginia Home received a product from XCAR for the purpose of a review. However, only our honest opinions were expressed.
