Thank you for sharing your experience with the Noah cover.I too had a two car garage in Orlando ,Mustang GT in Mazda CX5 out. I covered it with a Noah cover, ordered it with the shark fin antenna pocket fit our 2914 touring like a glove. I got the front and back clamps to keep it on during storms[a must] protected really well during hail storms.Only drawback it takes a long time to dry.The Weathershield is much lighter and dries almost instantly but offers no ding protection.
What, it rains in Central Florida?!? LOL. Thanks for your post. Yeah, I wouldn’t use a cover for everyday rain...just thinking more about the possibility of our hailstorms and ‘canes.I used a car cover for a while back in the late 80s after getting to Florida, and got tired of either having to take the cover off in the middle of a rainstorm, or after a rainstorm, and having to throw the wet and now heavy cover in the back for the drive home. Then you need to put the wet cover back on to get it to dry. Also, I’d be wary of using it in high winds. Aside from the chance of the cover starting to come off, the wind will make the fabric flap around, and I’m thinking thats not good for the paint.
I live in South Florida and cover my CX-5 during crappy weather too. I went to the Amazon page of the one I bought and like, but it said “No longer available.”Thanks for posting guys, I appreciate the thoughts. As far as why I want a cover...I live in Florida and the weather can be fairly crappy certain times of the year. The cover will only be used for those times. I am familiar with how to use them and that they *could* cause paint damage if used incorrectly. Unfortunately I only have a two car garage...so the new Mazda stays outside all the time. I was just hoping someone had had a great experience with a particular brand of cover for the CX-5s. If no other feedback is available...I’ll probably just stick with a Noah cover, even though I have no idea how well they will fit these vehicles.
