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 HeatSheild down. Roll up from end to end. Wrap the attached Velcro strap

I was looking at this for some time, and placed it in my cart after reading the mostly positive reviews. However I was still somewhat hesitant to buy it until I did some more research on the item (outside of Amazon).
Then a friend in the office bought one for her 2014 Hyundai Tucson, and she said she was happy with it. The shade was heavier and thicker than the regular universal accordion shades and, after checking it out, it seemed to fit her vehicle well except for the left and right ends which curled near the A-pillars, most likely due to it being constantly wrapped. s Nevertheless, I was impressed by the heavy duty feel of the product in my very brief hands-on exposure to it, and I figured the curling at the ends would straighten over time, so I went ahead and bought it for my 2008 Lancer, hoping for a perfect custom fitment. But my reviews on this item for my Lancer aren't all that great unfortunately, or at least not what I was expecting, since it doesn't...
Sunshade is perfect for the Mitsubishi Lancer. I use it for my 2012 Lancer ES and its the only one that is a perfect fit at the right price. Product is made well and is flexible so its easy to roll and put away. I can even put the shade up with out using the sun visors if I place it right. It will sit on the edge of the headliner right near the windshield. This wont harm the headliner if your careful. only issue is that it does sag in the middle of the dash like another user also said. To fix this I just use a Domo stuffed plush doll to help keep it up lol.
The picture shows a nice flush fit against the window. Let me manage your expectations by saying don't think this will work. The sunshade fits securely against the window with the visors down. On a sunny day the aluminum side gets hot to the touch. Be careful. We're not talking 1st degree burn hot but I'd exercise caution. Rolling up the sunshade is pretty easy as the velcro securely hold it bound together.
I've had previous sunshades go flimsy within a few months but this baby is going strong (Over 6 months).
