Dash Designs - OK to Good, But Could Be So Much Better!
I had a very similar 'retractable' shade that was in two 'halves', with a Velcro fastening in the middle...this you have to pull fully across the car windshield one side to the other. The corners of the plastic shade surround are VERY sharp and have already scratched by dashboard considerably when they occasionally contact - which I am not happy about! I added some adhesive Velcro felt to the 'bottom' of the surround that prevents further damage but WHY SO NEEDLESSLY SHARP in the 1st place?!
Car sun shade a necessity!
I moved to southern California from Illinois. I have become painfully aware of how the sun's rays were killing my car. Not only does it get too hot to get in, the steering wheel becomes too hot to touch. The rays bake the dash and the interior and ruin it. A relative recommended the Covercraft Car Shade, and it does help. Because it's designed to fit my car, it goes into place easily. It is very nicely made. Need to establish regular habit to use it!
