GypsyEsq:Most folks will say there is no safe sunshade -- projectile in a car crash, etc... We bought some tint cling film and that seemed to be ok but it's not really the same as a true sun shade. So we bought the Eddie Bauer one that has suction cups at the top and bottom and no hard roller piece. We got it at Target.
i have that "tint" cling also. it pretty much sucks
The cling ones suck and look really bad - returned it to Target also. They have some nice ones at BRU that clip onto the top of the window and have a suction cup at the bottom. Unfortunately, they won't work in our car since it has a safety feature that prevents the window from closing with a foreign object. So I guess I will be trying the total suction cup one and hopefully that works! I think pp mentioned the Eddie Bauer one at Target.
