It’s time to drop the top and get the flip-flops as summer comes along. Haven’t you ever just wanted to go for a drive in a convertible? I have. There are so many reasons to why someone would want a convertible and reasons to why they wouldn’t. A convertible will cost more than the coupe version. That price generally has to deal with the mechanism to pull down the top well maybe, and also the convertible is heavier generally speaking.

 

Everybody likes to take the bad news first. Some of these you might not understand and others will be like a breeze. The Chassis Situation. A car loses a major part of its structural support system without a fixed roof. You might hear more Noise. The soft top can still be noisy even with the top up. With each growing year the materials that the roofs are made of improved but do not offer any greater chance of preventing leaks. Another high risk thing is Security. Putting the top down increases your chances off robbed. The last one is Faster Aging of The Interior. With exposure to the elements and the sun your car’s’ material will fade and dirt will start to build up.

 

I saved the best for last. Some of the Pros, well you can figure some out but I’ve got some for you. The first one is Liberation; the feeling you get when the top goes down and the wind flies through your hair. The next one is the Retractable Roof. You can pull off at low speeds while the top is going down. Only a select few requires manual labor in order to get the top down. Now the Visibility is increased so your blind spots are easier to see. The last is The Cool Factor. There is nothing like driving in the summer with the top down and now some convertibles have paddle shifters behind the steering wheel too add to the driving experience.

 

Here is a list of some of the best convertibles.
