What's up, guys? Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my review of this Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover for both the 2010 to 2014 GT and V6, and 2010 to 2012 GT500 Mustang. This car cover is going to be for the Mustang owner that's looking for a well-crafted custom fit car cover but doesn't necessarily want to spring for a Covercraft cover, and doesn't need to have a logo on the front either. If you're shopping for a car cover, whether you have a garage or not, you're probably concerned with keeping your S197 as clean as possible. This cover is for indoor or outdoor use, but it's not your thin dust cover type of cover. It's actually a thicker, multi-layer cover that's made to protect from the elements like dust, UV rays, tree sap, and all of the harsh components that are out there in the wild or in your garage. One thing I like about this cover is the reinforced tie down locations so you can really make sure this thing doesn't come off of the car if you're going to be using this outdoors and in extreme weather. If you take a look here, there's a felt cover that's going to keep the plastic from scratching your car when you put the cover on, which is a nice touch. Another thing that I wanted to point out with this cover is that it really fits great without using any kind of tie down. The fit is really snug and you don't have any excess fabric anywhere, and you can see right here that I'm tugging on this thing and it's not going anywhere. So I am impressed with that. If we compare this cover to other covers that are currently available on the site, this is the least expensive custom fit cover, costing right in between $100 and $200. The Covercraft custom covers are a touch more expensive, but they do have a little bit of ding protection built into them, so if that's something you might want, you can take a look at those too. This is definitely a heavier cover that feels like it's really good quality. I don't think this thing will have any trouble holding up outside in some pretty rough weather, and it's not going to rip or tear or deteriorate, and it's not the type of fabric that things like tree sap can get through. We don't really have an install, per se, here, since all you really have to do is just take this thing out and put it over your car, so I'm not going to use a scale like I usually do on products. Sometimes the heavier custom fit car covers can be a little bit difficult to get on the car, but if you just get your side mirrors in first, that usually holds the cover in place pretty well and makes things easier. And when you do want to remove the cover, it pretty much just folds right up into itself, so it's easy to store and put back on. Really, there are no surprises here, and this is easy and straightforward. So wrapping things up here, this is a custom fit car cover that has a great fit and quality. While it is a heavier type of fabric, it's made for indoor or outdoor use, and it's very durable. You can check this cover out more for yourself online, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Absolutely love this car cover. It fits perfectly and the fabric is very well made. It goes almost all the way to the ground and i love it. Very little of the wheels show and every bit of the car is protected.Helpful (0)

Snug as a bug!
Not much to say other than the fit is spot on and my neighbors now call me "boomer" for covering up my S197 during the winter months...Helpful (0)

Isn't worth a flip and do not recommend!
For the money you I would at least expect for it to do what it says. Protect against the elements. Pulled the cover off this morning after it rained and the car is just as rain soaked as it would be without the cover. Fine dust like material is also left on the car as well. Don't waste your money if you're planning on buying this to keep your car nice and dry and protected from the elements!Helpful (0)

Fits perfect and I'm most definitely not worried about the wind taking it off since it snuggles the life out of the car. Great product for the price.Helpful (2)

I am writing this review in defense of this Trushield car cover. Three reviews (2 from Aug and one from Sept) slayed me. Your not vacuum sealing your car! I bought this car cover in July of 2018 when I was going to be out of the state's for 8 1/2 months. I waxed it and then covered it. The only time the was partially uncovered was for monthly startups. Intake, exhaust,drivers door. My Stang sat outside through a hot Calif. Summer, a messy call and a pretty bad winter. Got home April 2019, pulled the cover off, dusted it with a car duster, microfiber dusted a few crevices and my Stang looked like I left her. I have recommended this cover to at least 10 people based on my satisfaction! You want to save your car... Buy this cover!Helpful (3)

Car cover problem
I got the car cover to add extra protections from the elements. My mustang is customized and I'm trying to keep it as nice as possible, I only drive it about once a month and thought the car cover would keep it nice and clean. I have a Cervini Ram IV hood on it and it has huge air intake slots. I have a Boss 302 conversion on it with a polished cold air induction and a lot of other accessories such as Ford Racing valve covers etc. I thought by covering the car when I wanted to take it out the car would be all nice and clean with no dust residue. The car was covered for about 3 weeks when I decided to take it out. When I uncovered the car the complete car was covered in what looked like baby powder. I had to then wash the car before I could take it out which defeated the whole purpose of the cover. I decided the best thing to do was to wash the cover to get the powder residue off it. When taking it out of the washer I realized it was torn in several places. It was trash day so I put the cover in the trash. I did like the way the cover fit. With the mirror pockets it made it easy to put on and take off. Covered the car real nice. I don't know if I should order another one or find something different. Very disappointed!Helpful (0)

I've owned this car cover for one year and 3 weeks. This cover is used day, night, in the rain, and in very hot days in California; and i now have a medium tear on the left side quarter panel, which i had to patch up. i really was hoping for it to last longer for the price I paid.Helpful (0)

2013 Mustang car cover
I have never seen a better car cover, exact fit right down to the antenna, unbelievable. Very high quality and a reasonable priceHelpful (0)
Does this come with somekind of bag/pouch for storage ? Also, once folded/removed from the car, how compact is it ? Would it fit in the trunk easily ? Would it take more than half of it ? Thanks !
This does not come with any bag or pouch for storage. Once folded it would be able to be very compact and you should be able to store in it in your trunk easily.
How does the cover fit over my antenna Hoe long to put on and take off How is it in heavy winds Is it ok for 2013 mustang convertible
The TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover will have a pocket that will go over the antenna when installing the cover. Installation time will vary from person to person, but the average is approximately 10-15 minutes. For use in heavy winds, there are two eyelets on the bottom of the cover, with which you can run a bungee cord under the cover to secure it tightly. This works with both coupe and convertible models.
It looks like it has mirror pockets, Is that true?
The TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover comes equipped with mirror pockets.
Does this trap in moisture at all?
The material is still going to be breathable as to not trap in any moisture between the car and the cover.
Will this cover fit my Mustang with a California Special rear spoiler?
Yes this will fit with a California Special spoiler.
This cover does not leave a residue on the vehicle.
This will work with the GT500 model.
This will fit 2012 Boss 302 models.
As long as the cover is taken care of this will last for a long time.
This cover will definitely hold up with Florida weather and will not melt while on the car.
It is okay to put the TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover on while the car is wet. It is water resistant so it can be used outdoors. Though, it is not waterproof.
Their indeed do happen to be slight body differences for the 13-14 that would prevent proper fitment of this TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover
We would not have a custom fit cover for the 13-14 GT500 but we do have the standard fit covers that will work for all years. https://www.americanmuscle.com/covercraft-readyfit-mustang-cover-all.html
Not at all. The TruShield Standard Custom-Fit Car Cover (10-14 GT, V6; 10-12 GT500) has enough room underneath to accommodate any scoop or louver on the vehicle.
