Depending on where you live, it’s time to pull the snow windshield covers off your vehicle and grab a good ol’ windshield sun shade. If you’re tired of your seats, electronics, and LCD screens in your car feeling scorching hot in the summertime, then it’s time to invest in a windshield sun shade.
Not only do the sun’s UV rays heat your vehicle’s interior, but they ruin your seats. Ever wondered why your outdoor furniture gets wear and tear? It’s because the sun’s rays damage them. Harmful UV rays are ready to come for those leather seats this summer. Be proactive and get a car sun shade.
Sun Damage on Leather
Best Windshield Sun Shades
Amazon’s #1 best-seller in automotive windshield sunshades is this option right here. The high-quality cover has nearly 48,000 positive ratings and is under $16. It comes in six different sizes (including an XS for Wranglers). This is a great option to consider for custom fits.
The shade pops up easily in seconds. Sharon gave it five stars and wrote, “This is super easy to use. Open and put in window, can’t get any easier than that. My GMC Denali sits outside in the Southeastern NC sun all day and this really made a difference. When I get into my truck I can actually sit on the leather seats without being burned. It also keeps the sun of my dash which is important down here in the Southeast. I would definitely recommend it.”
Prevent sun damage with Amazon’s Choice for Motor Trend windshield shades. The $15 cover will keep the interior of your car cool on sunny days. (Yes, even the backseat!) There’s a dual-layer for ultimate UV protection.
A customer gave it five stars and wrote, “Caution as to negative reviews, as most are due to inaccurate size, which is buyer?s fault, not the sellers. Measure your own window to be sure you?re getting the correct size (buy slightly bigger than your window rather than smaller). The Jumbo 66×27, fits the window of my 2002 F250 perfectly, with a little extra room in the width. It is not at all flimsy, but not so thick that it?s awkward – perfect thickness and holds shape great! Easy to fold. Love that it has the Velcro close strap. This is a fantastic buy for the price and works as intended! Reversible: reflective silver on one side, color on the other.”
Keep your leather seats protected from direct sunlight with this $10 windshield shade. There are three sizes available? small, medium, and large.
Be sure to place it in the storage bag when you’re not using it.
This sun shade by TWING is a favorite since it’s retractable. The $26 shade even has an upgraded large suction cup to prevent it from falling off. A five-star review says, “i have had one of these type on another car. The one I had that time was applied with an adhesive to the window. This 1 goes on with little suction cups which i like a lot better. You really have to make sure that they’re stuck on well though.”
This $26 sun shade is ready to keep your car cooler this summer. The retractable shade has thick suction cups to keep it attached to your windshield. There’s even a tutorial on the information page for setting it up.
A customer gave it five stars and wrote, “I wanted to use this long enough to be able to write a proper review and I have. After a month of almost daily use I?m still loving this thing. My car isn?t big enough to mess with those bulky twist ones and I don?t have a lot of room to store the other kind. Having this permanently in the window is perfect.”
Of course, we had to include a funny option for you. Nearly 400 customers love it. Keep your car’s interior temperature cool but in style.
This $15.99 shade is perfect for parents. You’ll want something like this rear window shade in the summertime. Kids get hot from the sun, plus some kiddos like to stare directly into the sunlight. Yikes! This will keep them cool and safe.
Amazon’s Choice for Enovoe windshield shades is under $12. This size is perfect for large minivans and SUV windows. One customer even uses it to protect her cat from UV rays when lounging by windows. The opportunities are endless! For warranty information, visit this page.
Y’all, I highly recommend these retractable, roll-up, and collapsible sun shades. A few summers ago, my rearview mirror basically melted off my car since it was 108 degrees Fahrenheit. Protect your car.
