Choosing a Coverking Car Cover For Your Miata


This buyer’s guide has everything you need to know when buying a cover for your Miata. From what a car cover is and its application to the variety of covers we offer, followed by a comparative study of them all, we’ll cover information that would help you make an informed decision when getting a cover for your MX-5. And just in case you think we missed something, give us a call and we’ll be glad to help! So, here goes your Car Covers guide.

1. What Is A Car Cover And Why Should You Get It?

A car cover is simply that, a cover for your car. Made from a large sheet of fabric it shields your car from the elements, and aids in the long-term maintenance of your vehicle. You can choose a cover in a universal fit that should fit most cars or get one that is custom tailored to fit your car. Featuring a host of features, a car cover is a must have accessory for every car owner.

Here's Why You Should Get a Car Cover

The combined effect of natural elements can take its toll on the look and finish of your sports car. Rain, scorching sun, wind, dust and debris over time inflict dents and dings that wear down your car and keep it from looking new and shiny! Even a shady spot under a tree is not safe. Tree-sap, pollen, bird droppings, insects nesting in the tail pipes, or just squirrels running on the top can wreak havoc on your car and spoil much more than the paint-job. A car cover in such situations comes in handy as it keeps your Miata from the abrasive effects of the elements, and even from the accidental dents or scratches from a passerby's keys. Also, it deters vandals or thieves from spending time uncovering your car before damaging or stealing it. Keeping your vehicle cool in the sun, this small investment goes a long way in the safeguarding and upkeep of your sports car!

Keeping your Miata covered with a car cover is a great way to:

  • Shield it against damaging weather.
  • Prevent unsightly abrasions, dents and scratches.
  • Shield your car from insects, birds or animals.
  • Prolong the paint-life of your car.
  • Deter thieves and vandals.

 

2. Choosing The Right Cover For Your Miata

When deciding the right cover for your MX-5, we recommend keeping in mind a couple of factors:

The Weather or Climate Where You Live: Harsh weather conditions can definitely do a number on your Miata, which is why having a car cover built to shield your vehicle is important. If it rains more in your area, or if you live along the coast, then moisture and salt will seep into abrasions or scratches and start corrosion. If it is hot and sunny, then the intense radiant heat of the sun and harsh UV rays will fade the color right out of your car. Getting a cover that has exceptional water resistance or extra UV and photo-degradation protection with some reflective properties makes most sense in these two cases. So, think about the weather patterns in your area before deciding which car cover suits your Miata the best!


Where You Park and How Frequently You Drive Your Miata: Choosing the right color and thickness of the cover depend on how frequently you drive you Miata and where you park it.
Here are a few pointers to guide you:


  • Dark covers on light-color cars often have the potential of bleeding out. So be more cautious.
  • If you park your Miata in a garage and frequently use it, a lightweight indoor car cover is ideal.
  • If you park outside, you may want to select a lightweight outdoor car cover that's easy to use and fold.
  • If you park in crowded lots, or on streets with heavy pedestrian traffic, choosing a thick, heavyweight outdoor car cover which protects your car from scratches and dents is best.
  • If you plan on storing your Miata for long term, then get a heavier indoor car cover.

3. Why Should You Choose Coverking?

The Coverking Advantage

We choose Coverking for the simple fact that the quality of their covers is the best! Coverking designs its own fabrics and works with the world’s leading textile mills to handle manufacturing. With quality assurance teams dedicated to check every batch of fabric, Coverking ensures that the material used in the products meet the most stringent assessments. The car covers go through a series of tests to see if the material is breathable, allowing for the proper release of moisture. The fabrics are exposed to intense UV rays to make sure they don't fade over time. The materials are stress tested to see if they hold up for everyday conditions. Above all, the covers are checked before reaching customers to ensure quality.

The covers are designed using as few seams as possible. Extra seams only increase the chance of leakage. Thus, by eliminating seams, Coverking produces car covers which boast the best all-round-fit without compromising quality. The custom covers are specially designed and constructed using the latest double-needle sewing techniques to ensure fine craftsmanship and durability, with a backup stitch sewn in for extra support. All outdoor custom car covers are sewn with heavy, wax coated thread to ensure water resistance.

The Custom Fit Advantage: A bespoke car cover hugs every contour of your Miata's body compared to the baggy, one-size-fits-all covers which slip and slide on your car. Like a fine suit, your cover is made to fit the curves and features of your vehicle. The designers at Coverking spend time with different Miata models, and use 3D scanners to record every detail. This data is used to create a world class cover with the fewest seams possible! Featuring sewn-in mirror pockets, plus grommet holes for antennas, these covers snugly wrap up your Miata and prevent the elements from sneaking in through the gaps and damaging your vehicle’s exterior.

5. Tips On Maintaining A Car Cover

  • Don't install car covers on newly painted vehicles.
  • Do not cover a vehicle that has been wrapped.
  • Convertible tops, windows, sun and moon roofs must be closed completely before covering your vehicle.
  • Check the status of your vehicle every 3 weeks if it is in storage and under a cover for long periods of time.
  • In cold environments, do not remove the cover in the unusual circumstance that a layer of ice has formed between the cover and the vehicle. Pour warm water over the cover to expedite thawing, as this ice must be thawed before removal.
  • Do not rely solely on the elasticized bottom of the cover in even moderate winds. Utilize the integrated security grommets in any substantial wind. If high wind conditions are present (30+mph), the covers should not be used.
