1998 SC2
Question Best Sunshades During Parking for a '98 Coupe

Would like a set of Sunshades for the Windshield & both front side windows. Removing & re-installing every day.

Nothing that's a hassle to put in the back seat or takes up lots of room.

Which set do you like the best?

The folding reflectix type is probably best at blocking heat (foil on both sides, thick bubbles in the middle). I have a set for the minivan with its huge front window

For the Saturn, I use a cheap set of pop up shades. This style but different mfr

Not as good at blocking heat, but faster. The reflectix one I have folds up and that takes a few seconds.

The pop up ones, I just toss in the back seat without folding up. I only fold them up in the winter, for storage.

A long time ago, when there were Saturn dealers still in existence, some of them carried a Sunshade that was made to fit the car's exact windshield shape. Much more expensive than the cheap Walmart things, but also much better made (and made in the US)

The company that sold those to Saturn dealers is still around:

https://www.heatshieldstore.com/


No connection to this company other than I have one in each of my cars - I think they work great.

Excellent info! I have a Saturn dealer one for the front. Heatshield still makes one for the front AND for the back window too!
