PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: HeatShield - Advanced Windshield Reflector HeatShield is an automotive windshield reflector, "sun shade," or "sun visor," custom designed to fit the shape of each car model's windshield. The HeatShield material is simple and unique. A special metallized polyester film, laminated to a thin layer of closed-cell foam, with a clear polyester film back. HeatShields are custom cut using the latest in computer-aided cutting technology. Then they are sewn around the edge with a cloth binding. So HeatShields are reflective, insulating and custom fit for every car. INSTALLATION HeatShield installation is easy and quick. Lay the Heat Shield across the dash. Lift up to the windshield. Drop the sunvisors for support HeatShield is stiff enough to be supported by the sunvisors alone, but it is flexible enough to be bent around the mirror. Once installed, HeatShield will reduce the interior temperature at the dashboard by as much as 40 deg. F. (25 deg. C.) HeatShields are simple to use, but they are just as easy to store! PRODUCT STORAGE When not in use, store your HeatShield like this: Lift sunvisors and pull HeatShield down. Roll up from end to end. Wrap the attached Velcro strap

Shade was purchased for my new 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid in September 2012. Materials and construction appeared to be top notch, and initially fit extremely well. We even went as far as purchasing another one for my wife's Sportage. Definitely kept the car COOLER! Now it's July and the shade is sagging severely. Maybe cars/SUVs/trucks with more upright windshields will be better off, but the aerodynamics of the Optima dictate a large windshield with a fair amount of rake. There's a one-inch gap at the top of the windshield now and every day it's a concern that it will 'sag' its way out of the sun visors that are now barely holding the unit in place. When I called the manufacturer (Canvas Works, Bruce's Custom Covers, or whatever name they're going by) they offered to send me some suction cups. Of course, the whole reason for going with this product is the lack of additional fasteners. Kinda defeats the purpose...in their own words:

I bought this for my wife's new 2015 Kia Optima SXL. It fits the windshield perfectly, edge to edge.
In response to other reviewers who report that the shade sags over time. Yes, gravity will do that. It happened to my 2005 Mazda 3 shade, so I went and bought 2 thin dowel rods at the hardware store and simply taped them to the back of the shade with clear shipping tape (in direction of bottom to top of window, not side to side, so I could still roll it up). No more sag for a few bucks instead of getting a new shade.
Simply put, this Heatshield sunshade fits inside my car windshield exactly as advertised, is very affordable, and is of the highest quality. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone looking for a windshield sun screen, where an exact fit for their specific vehicle is desired.
