At some point, everyone has dreamt of hitting the open road behind the wheel of their very own stunning and powerful convertible. However, there are many crucial aspects to consider before making this exciting purchase.

Now, anybody who’s ever had a roofless car swears by the exhilaration that comes from stepping into the driver seat. Chances are, many of these convertible owners also know the downsides of maintaining and using these vehicles, especially during harsher seasons.

These negative aspects shouldn’t entirely deter a curious car consumer from getting one of these enjoyable automobiles, yet they are worth mentioning. Here are a few of the pros and cons of purchasing a convertible.

Convertibles aren’t without drawbacks, and owning one can be a nuisance. Here are two cons of purchasing a roofless car.

Seasonal Driving

Individuals living in a region where winters are harsh and spring is rainy lament that their convertibles sit in the garage for half the year. Without the proper weather protection, convertibles can suffer damages from leaks due to inclement weather conditions. Plus, the driving experience is entirely unpleasant.

Weak Chassis

Without the supportive frame of a roof, many convertibles suffer from a less reinforced chassis. In short, this makes the drive quite bumpy. Those prone to motion sickness typically avoid convertibles, and those who don’t may still experience pain from bouncing around on the road.

Let’s be honest—even with the pains that come from owning a convertible, they’re undoubtedly cool and entertaining for the entire family. Here are two pros of purchasing a drop-top vehicle.

Better Driving Experience

Luxury cars these days, especially quality SUVs, have quiet cabins and an emphasis on comfort. For a daily driver, these aspects are preferred among consumers. However, the driving experience of a fast convertible is unrivaled, even when compared to thrilling roller coasters. The mixture of feeling the wind on your face with the freedom of hitting the open road cannot be understated. In truth, one must drive a convertible to truly appreciate the ride.

Advanced Weather Protection

A major con of owning a convertible in a seasonal region is that it can’t be driven year-round. However, these high-class roofless vehicles have advanced in the past two decades and now possess better weather protection and technology. For instance, many high-end brands offer retractable hard-tops that pop up in an instant and keep passengers dry. Drop-top Jeeps are easily converted from an open thrill ride to a suitable daily driver with the proper assembly tools.
