Copy of FAQ from the Convertible Top Page.
Q. Our car was broken into last week and the convertible top was sliced open. What can we expect the insurance company to do for us?
A. If you have full coverage the insurance will pay to replace your convertible top, less your deductable.* However a convertible top is considered a wear item, meaning that every year older the top is, it is worth less (prorated). If your car is near new you should expect the full cost of the job be paid, less your deductable. If your top is nine or ten years old don't expect much; it is considered at the end of its useful life.
* Please add total damages, stolen sound equipment, damaged dash, broken glass, personal content loss, and convertible top damage to the deductable equation.
Q. Does insurance cover my broken convertible top glass window?
A. The answer is the same as with the above sliced convertible top, with a twist. If you have zero deductable glass coverage, the insurance company might pay in full to replace it, some will and some won't. Call your insurance agent and ask.
