Don't let UV rays and extreme heat degrade your vinyl dashboard and interior. And that goes double if you have leather seats. The damaging effect of solar radiation is two-fold: the UV radiation will attack the plastic and leather directly. Solar heating can raise the interior temperature of a parked vehicle to nearly 180°F, hot enough to burn your hands on the metal seatbelt buckle or steering wheel. Needless to say, that kind of heat can't be good for soft vinyl or leather. It will bake the volatile plasticizers and oils right out of them. They'll turn hard, and eventually crack and split.
Most cars have tinted windows, and you can add tinting to the side and back windows, but federal law (and common sense, we hope) prohibits the windshield from being tinted enough to really keep out the sun. The best way, if you can't park inside all day every day, is a shade to reflect the UV back and to insulate the interior from the heat. The Ultimate Reflector starts with a highly reflective layer of aluminized Mylar, which can reflect both short-wave ultra-violet and long-wave infrared radiation. It's backed up with a unique air-cushion heat barrier layer, and then a 1/4" thick thermal foam board for additional insulation and rigidity. The back of the reflector is then finished off with a fiber layer for strength, and then the final layer of graphite-colored protective felt. The Intro-Tech Automotive Custom Folding Auto Shade is available is available in a custom-fit for your vehicle there are 2,600 patterns in their computer-based cutting machine.
You can expect the temperature of your interior to remain as much as 40°F or more cooler when the Ultimate Reflector is used. Bonus: Keep your car warmer when parked in winter by reversing the reflector, and installing it felt-side out. It takes only a few seconds to unfold the Reflector and install it on the dash, and just as long to fold it up and put it back in the included leatherette pouch.59.95Brand: Intro-Tech Automotive Part Number: AC-19-R

I received my sun shade and installed it in my wife's Acura RDX the day it delivered to my door. To my dismay, it did not fit. It was about 3 and 1/2 short in length. After an e-mail along with a pic, CARiD contacted me that day and expressed they were working on my issue. The next day they said the MFG was making a new shade based upon our report. A new shade was received, and the fit is perfect. The car now stays cooler, and the interior is protected. I'm totally happy with this entire process, but most of all, my wife is happy too. Thanks, CARiD! Signed, Happy ShopperWas this review helpful for you? YesNo(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY
