Throw some shade (the good kind) at your car this summer and shop our wide variety of car window shades, because he/she deserves it. And, let’s be honest, so do you. No one wants unsightly, cracked leather on their car’s interior - or to plop their booty down on 100-degree seats after letting your car roast in the sunshine for half the morning.
We’ve all slid behind the wheel to realize that the wheel itself is hotter than the back burner of your stove after last night’s fajita party. Stoves are better when they’re hot, your steering wheel is not. Start looking for a new windshield sun shade and stop worrying about how long you’ll have to blast the A/C before you can touch the interior of your car during the next summer heatwave.
What’s more, our high-quality windshield sun shades don’t just block out some of the heat from that direct sunlight your car’s been catching. They also protect your dashboard, steering wheel, and seats from fading and cracking after prolonged radiation and UV exposure. Plus, putting up some car window shades will keep your cell phone from melting while you run into the store for a quick errand. Need we say more?
But before you pick the design that speaks to you, it’s important to know a few details about auto sun shades so you can buy the best one for your hot rod. First, all high-quality car window shades will have one reflective side. This is the side that will face out toward the sun, blocking UV rays and keeping your cabin nice and cool (or, at least cooler). But some car sun shades also have a second backing to help trap the heat and warm your car up during the winter months. Genius, we know. If this is something that has you nodding your head excitedly, then shop our WeatherTech or Intro-Tech windshield sun shades.
Second, know what your options are when it comes to form and function. AutoAnything carries three styles of auto sun shades - accordion, roll-up, and foldable. Think of the difference between the last two styles just like the difference between a sandwich and burrito. Both great, but just up to your own personal preference. For each of these styles of window sun shades, you can also get a universal size or go for a custom fit to make sure not a single beam of sunlight seeps through your windshield.
Lastly, if you want flare, we’ve got flare! Your significant other may have nixed the cheetah print seat covers, but there are other ways you let your personality shine through with your car. Sun shades aren’t a permanent part of your car and can actually help your car stand out in a sea of sedans in the grocery store parking lot. So, have some fun and grab a window shade in your favorite animal print or show your team spirit. Of course, if you are looking for a classic black or something that will match the color of your vehicle, we’ve got those, too.
Aside from those differences, auto sun shades are one of the relatively easy (but no less important) car accessories to pick out. We have shades to fit every budget and plenty of customer reviews to help you make the choice.
