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°, 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 will turn hard, and eventually crack.
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 from the heat. The Custom Auto Shade starts with a highly reflective layer of aluminized Mylar, which can reflect both short-wave ultra-violet and long-wave infrared radiation. The multi-layer material will then supply additional insulation to keep heat from infiltrating the interior. The Intro-Tech Automotive Custom Auto Shade 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 cooler when the Custom Auto Shade is used. It takes only a few seconds to unroll the Custom Auto Shade and install it on the dash, and just as long to roll it up for stowage.39.95

Unlike auto store type shades, this shade has sleek looking reflective surface which fits perfectly and shades completely. Two auto store shades did not fit and had to be folded at each end to fit in the windshield and left uncovered strips at each end. They also drooped when the visors tried to hold them in place. This shade is easy to use and blocks a lot of the heat, keeping the parked car cooler. Also stores securely with Velcro strap instead of cheap elastic which stretches after a shot time and no longer works. I will definitely buy one of these for my next car, it's the only way to go!Was this review helpful for you?

The custom shade I received fits my SUV's narrow windshield like a glove. Didn't know what to expect when I ordered it, but it exceeded my expectations. Fits perfectly to my odd windshield there's no way I could ever use an off-the-shelfer in my vehicle, they're too big. This arrived rolled up & held closed with its own velcro strap. Really good quality material - not cheap or flimsy - well made. Works as claimed - keeps the sun out & the temp in my vehicle cooler.Was this review helpful for you?

Well, I wish I had gotten one of these sooner. In Texas, it takes the inside of a car about two seconds to heat up enough to roast a chicken. (Not that I've ever tried to, mind you.) It is a fantastic fit for my Hyundai Elantra. I noticed a significant difference in how hot the car was from when I used a sunshade that just didn't cover a lot of the windshield. Get one if you don't have one! Mary H., Austin, TexasWas this review helpful for you?

What we like best about the window shades, is that they are custom fit and cover the entire windshield along with multiple layers, that helps with UV & heat.Was this review helpful for you?

Occasionally you do get what you pay for. This is such a product. I have owned almost every type of sun screen or shade - cardboard, silverized fabric, etc. but this dual layer screen is stiff enough to hold its shape in place yet flexible enough to easily slip around a permanently mounted Valentine radar unit. The fit is perfect. Easy to roll up and store with included velcro strap. Highly recommended.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

This shade works almost just as well as the description says it does. I bought it because I have to leave my car outside for 7 hours while in school. And my car used to be an oven when I got in it after school, and I have tinted windows. Now when I put the shade on, on days with pure sun, my car is still pretty warm inside but I can tell a difference. It is a noticeable difference. Good buy overall.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

As promised, the fit is 100% better than the universal windshield shades. The construction feels firm/solid, not flimsy and yet unrolls with ease and springs into place without any effort. The only downside is how it's rolled. The reflective material is on the top side when rolled up, which means I must close my eyes while unrolling or rolling up to prevent the sun rays from reflecting of the shade and hitting me in the eyes. Not a big inconvenience but a slight annoyance. Can't roll shade with reflective part down, because the Velcro strap won't work that way. Overall, the only downside is how the shade is stored, but I do expect to get many years of life out of this shade here in sunny California.Was this review helpful for you?

Here, in sunny Florida, this product is essential. This auto shade is everything the product description says it is and more. I was skeptical that there was a difference between my previous $10 auto shade and this one. The fact that it is tailored to the specific vehicle, and the super high quality reflective material makes a huge difference with the amount of sun that is getting into the vehicle. Hence, the inside temperature is at least 20 degrees cooler than the elements. My only regret is that I did not look into this product at the time of my last auto purchase.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
