I found installing the CarCover.com Ultimate Shield on my Honda S2000 as easy as it gets.  There is a “Front” tag sewn on the inside of the front cover seam, which makes orienting the Ultimate Shield simple.  Then it was just a matter of rolling it out and fitting it to the car.

The Ultimate Shield comes with scratchproof grommets on either side as well as a plastic coated steel cable with padlock for added security.

Positives

  • Custom fit makes your car look great
  • Fleece Lining feels great and makes installation worry-free
  • Very durable design with 7-year manufacturer warranty
  • Comes with a nice storage bag made of the same material
  • Free shipping

Negatives

  • Brass padlock seems undersized but does the job just fine
  • Be mindful of your antenna (outlet patches are included)

Overall Opinion – I couldn’t be happier with this cover.  It fits great, looks fantastic and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Ultimate Shield outlasts my S2000.

  1. I ordered the gest cover they had for my 56 chevy p/u. Cover would fit a semi (no b/s) Carcover.com now has no concern for the cover that is hanging on the ground and gets mud all over my truck when I uncover it to cruise. Personally I will never buy another thing from them and strongly suggest that others steer clear. Their customer service policy isn’t worth a thing. Buyer beware.

      I agree they sent one to me for my 84 Bette that was 2 feet too long. They force you to pay for return shipping when it was their fault. Worst experience ever. Hopefully PayPal can assist me in getting my money back.

    I bought the ultimate car cover in 2013 and loved it. It is a precess and hassle to cover my SUV by myself. It is now falling apart. Contact has been made to the company for replacement. It does have a 7 year warranty. Still on day one, it did leave always leave a fibery residue on the car.

    I purchased the Premium Ultimate “Weather Proof” Cover for my Range Rover, what a waste of money! Within 6 months the cover during light rain becomes saturated and leaks over the entire vehicle. I called customer service understood the problem and they asked me to supply photos, which I did. Two weeks later they contact me only to say that the cover is not “water proof” and would not correct the problem or stand behind their warranty. I don’t think they understand the definition of water proof or water resistant, they surely should not advertise as weather proof unless you a storing the car in a garage. It’s a very poor quality cover and please do not Waste your money on the cheap Chinese Junk!

    I’m so thankful for these reviews on Carcover.com. They saved me from making a costly but potentially bad purchase. Do any of you have ideas on where to buy the best car cover for my 2014 Chevy Cruze LTZ without spending over $225? Minnesota has hot humid summers and lots of snowy winter days. My biggest concerns are uv protection, and breathability because of all the moisture here. Thanks
