Can I use a car cover for my Honda Civic SI in the snow?

The winter in Minnesota is no joke! I want to make it easier to clean the snow off my car in the morning and I have heard of people using car covers so they don't have to brush the snow off. Will that work for my Honda Civic SI?

A car cover for your Honda Civic SI will save you time in the winter but don’t throw your snow brush away just yet! Before removing the cover, you will still need to brush off your car on heavy snow days.
Depending on the quality and thickness of your car cover, pulling it off the car with the full weight of that Minnesota snow may cause it to rip. Here are a few tips to help you out:
  • Invest in your car cover: Since you will use your car cover for six months out of the year, for the life of the car, this isn’t the time to be cheap. You will see car covers for $30, don’t get those. You need a high-quality all-weather cover
  • Custom is best: Snow and water can seep under ill-fitting car covers, and if that water freezes to your car, you will have a hard time getting it off. A cover customer fitted to your Civic will cost between $150-$200 but it will be worth the time it can save you
  • Windshield covers: Ice and Snow windshield covers are a perfect alternative to a whole car cover. These cost as little as $20 and allow you to pull the cover off without scraping the snow and be on your way
