FAQ About Convertibles

Can you drive a convertible through a car wash?
With the top closed (obviously), most convertible cars can actually go through a car wash normally. You could make sure that your car’s company has confirmed that though, just to be on the safe side.

Do convertibles cost more to insure?
Since convertibles on average cost more than normal cars, then it would make sense that on average they’d cost more to insure. However, you could always opt for a cheaper model to save on your insurance.

How do you maintain a convertible top?
Rinse the top with water, but make sure that the top is made of waterproof material before you do so. Afterwards spray it with a cleaner, and brush on it lightly while making sure that it is getting cleaned.
