Dear liblonana - It's colder in the winter than in the summer. Actually, convertibles on the whole are sealed fairly tight nowadays, not like back when I was a boy and a convertible top was hardly anything more than a pup tent flapping in the breeze overhead. Take a look at the car and look for damage. Take it for a ride and listen for "excessive" wind noise. Do you feel any drafts? And most importantly does the heater work properly? Good luck from Bovan.

The top is well insulated, the heaters are good. The rear window is glass so it won't break. In short.good in winter !!!
