Re: Sunshade for Windshield?

Thu Feb 10, 2011 3:39 pm

I did email the Eclipse maker since I did not see the LEAF option to order on their website. They responded right away and said their manufacturer was having trouble locating a LEAF to be able to size the shade for manufacture! I responded that we if knew what city the manufacturer was in, maybe we could connect them to someone with a LEAF for the measurement! I'll see if they respond again. Similar issue, I guess, to seat covers, etc...just waiting for the aftermarket folks to catch up to the fact that the car is already here. :D

If someone with a Leaf could drive up to a Versa and measure the windshields to see if they are the same, that would be very helpful.

Does it mount to the pillar, or the windshield?

In CA, it is technically illegal if mounted to the windshield, right?

That was 100% NOT clear. If I were you I would go ahead and edit post to make that distinction.

I'm wondering if the one from my '08 Prius will work? Since that car will be leaving the family soon (hopefully), I could put the sunshade to good use.

Actually I tried it out with a friend today--the Prius one will work although it doesn't hook around the rear view mirror (too tall). The Sun visors hold it in place. It'll work while the custom fitted one is being designed and manufactured.

I wound up buying an Auto Expressions Platinum Auto-Shade, standard size, at Kragen's for like $11. It's a pair of fabric-covered rectangular springy hoops which snap open and fold closed quickly. The two rectangles fit nicely in the Leaf's windshield with their long axis oriented up and down. Once folded, they can be slipped into the back pocket of the passenger seat or in the door pocket.
