Hello forum, just wanted to review the Intro-Tech custom fit auto shade for my CMax which came today after ordering through Amazon for $48.30 total delivered.
Yes it is very long as you can expect to cover the large windshield, but that's to be expected. After placing it up to the windshield it lives up to it's description as "Custom Fit" because it completely covers the entire area of the glass and lays flat along the "A" pillars on both sides when pushed into place with your hands. Then along the top tucked into place under the trim on either side of the rear view mirror. Lastly it fits in place along the bottom where the glass meets the dashboard. Once I had it in place it held there on it's own without the sun visors pulled down to support it, however the included instructions tell you to lower them for added support.
The thing I really like is it lays pretty close to flat all the way across the windshield which is cool since I'm very anal about things fits neatly. From outside looking at the windshield it completely covers the glass and reaches flat to all trim pieces top, sides, and bottom no roll up issues as other have mentioned with other designs.
For storage it rolls up easily after you pull it out from behind the mirror and roll it up towards you in the drivers seat. I had no problem doing this alone despite the large size. Once rolled up, wrap the velcro strap around it for closure and throw it in the back seat or behind in the storage area, but I can't reach it from there to install without getting out of the seat obviously.
Later I will post pictures from the inside and the outside, but all in all I think this is the best solution available for the CMax to protect our large dash and interior like my leather seats from direct UV damage. Not to mention help with summer heating. Price for me was reasonable for such a nice fitting design. Much better than those zig zag fold up cardboard screens I used in my Datsun Z in the 70's and 80's. Or those weird twist and fold round twin screens.
I rate it 5 stars for fit and design for the vehicle intended.
