Bought this one for my daughters new to her kia
I have had one of these since my civic was new in June of '12 and it looks and works as good as the day i bought it. I don't see it wearing out or getting crumbly ever. If you own your car for 20 years this will be working good as new. I live in South Florida and don't have a garage.
Best Sun Shield ever
This cover really does keep all the sun off the dashboard. I do believe that the car is cooler when using this one and not the 'pop-up' ones I was using. Easy to place, but large, so doesn't fold up small. But since I am usually the only one in the car, I flip it to the back seat, or the footwell of the passenger seat. All in all a good purchase.
Works Well but Difficult to Install
This product was not what I expected it to be. PROS: It is high quality, well-made and does block the sunlight very well. CONS: 2 separate pieces, very cumbersome to fold, installing is a pain because you have to adjust your rear view mirror to make the shade fit, and it's difficult to determine which piece goes into which side of the windshield. I wanted to like it but its just so annoying to put up every time I leave the car and it takes forever to do so. Will be returning.
