Do you want a snug fit that’s easy to cover your car with and easy to pull off when not needed but not too loose? Check the Car cover size charts to find the right cover for your car. Generic car covers are available but they provide mediocre protection against elements.

Can indoor car covers be used outdoors?

Yes, but only for a very short period and in good weather conditions. Moisture will get trapped underneath the cover and will affect your car. An indoor car cover protects your vehicle from dust and dirt in your garage, not UV or rain in the open.
