Hi , first post in years

still have my is200 sport 13 years after buying it. Just wanted to know if anyone can recommend a good car cover for the winter months.

I think it's still possible to get tailored/fitted car covers from Covercraft.  I have used these on other cars, and they are pretty good:  breathable, not waterproof, so they are better than the plastic ones.

But if you want to keep your car well-protected from the winter weather, and don't have a dry garage, I'd recommend an outdoor Carcoon.  Not cheap, and you need a mains power socket to run the transformer which powers the fans and also keeps the Battery trickle-charged. 

Not really sensible if you are aiming to continue using the car on a daily/weekly basis, as putting the Carcoon up and taking it down is a bit of an exercise.  But far better than any car cover if you are in effect "storing" the car outside over the winter.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
