Do windshield sunshades work?
The short answer is yes. Car sunshades do work in reducing the overall temperature inside your vehicle. The traditional reflective models work by reflecting the sun’s solar rays and harmful UV rays while non-reflective shades absorb them. Some tests have shown a decrease in interior temperature of 30 degrees or more.
