Top 5 Reasons to Buy a Convertible (and Enjoy It Year 'Round)

Just because Minnesota has some fierce temperatures over our long winter months doesn’t mean you can’t have that convertible you’ve dreamed about.

When you go for a convertible with a hard top, winter driving is no longer a concern. Hardtop convertibles insulate and protect just as well as other cars, which means you’re free to drive year round. Plus, when you park on the street, it’s far more secure than a soft-top is, which discourages opportunistic thieves from digging through your possessions. Add a protective seal to the paint, and you’re set for a great looking car for the long haul.


Vitamin D
Most people get up, and grab a quick breakfast before stumbling into their car, pulling an 8 to 10 hour day at the office. By the time you get home, you’re probably too tired to spend a whole lot of time playing outside. Why not spend that time in your car soaking up the sun? It doesn’t take much time to generate enough vitamin D for optimal health, so there’s no reason why you can’t use your commute to improve your life just a little bit.

Quite a few newer models have seats which are specially designed to resist observing heat from the sun or freezing in the cold. When the temperature does get into extremes, you can opt for seats that’ll cool themselves during the summer and heat themselves in the winter. If you’re worried about noise, there are models designed to reduce wind noise on the highway.

Road Trips
There’s little more romantic than taking your partner for a getaway in a convertible. Even with increased gas prices, the majority of engines have great gas mileage. The luxury and class of your new car doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the practicality of a great performing machine.
