Its starting to get seriously hot here and its time to invest in a sun shade for my CMax.
Hell, its a big window but I thought, its not THAT big so I had some nice large Costco sunshades and tried it - shocked to see that it came nowhere close to getting a proper fit. So my wife went out and bought the largest size one from Costco. Great, this will work. Not.
Yep, the front windscreen in a CMax is BIG!
I know someone was recommenind an IntroTech $59.95 sun shade, that was too rich for me. Shopping around, I found this Amazon HeatShield for 2013 CMax for $33.95
So it arrived today in a nice long brown box. Initially, I thought - great, my wifey loves me and I have a new golf club....but no, it's just the HeatShield sunshade. It was very well wrapped and sealed in a clear plastic bag. Fairly light but definitely bulkier than any other sunshade I owned. It came all rolled up and its not folded unlike some other sunshade.
Measurement is: 3'1" length and has a 4" diameter with a velcro wrap. The HeatShield material feels interesting - it does not feel cheap, pretty thick with the metallic foil material and the backing foam support which explains the 4" diameter.
This is the interior shots of the HeatShield inside my CMax. Comes with a nice big YELLOW label to warn us not-too-clever drivers like moi about as to how to use it. Hell, I almost expect another warning "Be careful not to spill hot McDonald coffee" on it
Now the fit of the HeatShield is pretty nice in the middle. Tuck the HeatShield behind the rear vision mirro, drop the sunvisors and its rock solid fit:
This is what it looks like from the outside. It is a perfect fit with no curl edges:
So where do you put this HeatShield? 2 places:
It is big, has some curl in the end but its brand new so I'll see. Will update this thread to see how cool it will be with my black interior Maxine in the SoCal sun
