I just picked myself off the floor. :willy: Called my local Saturn dealership - Saturn of Mississauga to get a price on the Sky car cover. Get this :brentil: $695 CDN. 5 day delivery as it comes out of US.
Is GM insane or what :willy: :willy:
How much does it sell for in the US ?
Cheers

Car cover is $295 in the US according to the Saturn website. There are aftermarket ones available as well, I believe.

The Weathershield is probably our best even though the Sunbrella costs over $60 more. This is because it is more compact so it will take less space in your trunk if stored there, and it has alot more color options. As far as protection, it offers great protection and still is able to breath so that it can let out heat and moisture. If you have any other quesitons feel free to ask. You can email me at [email protected] or just post it on here.

Our best cover, the Weathershield, is only $256.41. We have another cover for a little over $300, but its not as compact as the Weathershield. We also sell a cover for $144. Check em out. Here is a direct link to the Weathershield.

Thanks Brian,
I am looking for a cover to cover the car in the winter when its in the garage.
I don't drive the car in the rain and won't in the snow. What would you recommend ?

$695 CND he stated, not US. I got the $295 cover but Im sure there are some cheaper ones out there.
$295 US is nowhere near $695 CND. At the current exchange rate, that US price would still only be about $340 CDN.

No Kidding. Even the guy from the parts dept couldn't believe the price. He said go aftermarket its not worth it.

If you want a stricktly indoor cover we have 2 covers to choose from. The form fit is softer and has a memory material that will take the cars shape and keep it. Then there is a basic flannel cover.

If you think you might use the cover outside, I would deffinitely reccomend the weather shield.

You are the first that I've heard that bought the cover. How is it? Do you like it? Can it fit in the trunk with the top down? Input would be helpful.

Thanks

I went with the official GM Cover. I ordered it on-line, paid $295 with no sales tax and free shipping. It stows away in a drawstringbag and fits in the trunk with the top down, no problem. In fact, I stuff it in the corner (opposite corner from the air pump) and it fits there leaving the massive center area between the supports open for my "large cargo."

The lighting varies on these shots - it's all the same cover and it is a dark charcoal gray in normal light.

The GM cover is nicely fitted, and I like it a lot. I use it to keep kitty footprints off the car when it is in the garage. I don't use it outdoors.

I can say that everything that I have ordered from KappaSphere has been superb, so you probably wouldn't go wrong with anything from them, either.

Thanks for the info. I'm about to order the in door out door cover from kappasphere for $256.41 plus tx and shipping (Calif. Resident) and was worried about ordering from an unfamiliar source. My question after seeing your pictures, is there writing on your cover? I thought I saw the SKY wording on it?

KappaSphere ordering is no problem - but the KappaSphere guys are coming to our Beach Drive. If you call them now, maybe they can bring one with them - free shipping!

The factory cover does have a SKY logo which I use to identify the part of the cover that goes on the "pointy" end.

Take a drive down to the US some time and pick one up...it will be cheeper paying for the gas than paying the CN$600+ for it!

I have the Saturn car cover (no garage right now) and I assumed it was waterproof. I left the car covered three days in the rain. After removing the cover I found water spots and marks on the car where the cover touched it.
I decided I might as well leave the cover off if its going to damage the paint. Did I miss something? I thought the cover was waterproof.

Well Ive been doing research on this since I just bought a car cover for my 4 Runner which will now be sitting outside 8 months out of the year. According to the website where i bought it at the reviews on the Weathershield indicated a good cover strong material with a snug fit but not water proof as many thought. Many took off their covers only to find water on the paint. I ended up bying the Noah which almost unanimously had dry as can be on its reviews. Other than that reviewers were highly satisfied with the WeatherCraft Weather Shield and it comes in different colors.

We decided against the Saturn cover after being told it was not waterproof. We went with the Kappa Weathershield. Since it has yet to rain on it I can only comment it was easy on and off so far. :)

The decription says it only has a 2% absorption rate so it is fast drying and it states it is water proof so we'll attest to this when we have a rain. Til then we are enjoying dust free, poop free, dew proof days. :)
