    Get a Covercraft UVS100, the best of the best.

    Also, look at this http://www.heatshieldstore.com/

    I have one and it works great! They are custom cut to fit the SRX windshield.

    I have this one too. Because the SRX windshield is so deep, mine wants to sag in the middle. Have you found a way to overcome this?

    The UVS100 is made of a very thick carboard and does not sag.

    You're right Steve it is a very deep windshield! Mine sags a little too, but still stays in place. I don't use the sun visors to support it either (and they really look like they wouldn't help much anyway). I think the rear view mirror does most of the supporting. It does do a good job of blocking most of the sun and definitely keeps the interior cooler.

    +1. Excellent fit and finish.

    My only complaint is that it is a little awkward to roll up with someone in the passenger seat. Otherwise, it's a great product!

    Mine also sags a bit in the middle, but nothing to worry about. As mentioned by Jake, I don't even need to sun visors to hold it in place -- it stays on its own.

    I'm amending my review of this product. It's a well-made item, to be sure, but mine is sagging so badly at this point (after only two months) that the company has agreed to replace it under warranty. (See attached picture.) I'm skeptical that a new one will be any better...but time will tell.

    I'm afraid that mine is suffering the same problem. I'll be curious to know if your warranty replacement fares any better.

    You guys may have thrown too many empty beer cans up there which may explain the sagging.

    We actually have the same exact shade, and I am sure that everyone, especially Steve will be glad to know that so far no problems. Ours is about three months old.

    Just give it time. Mine is over a year old.

    Are you trying to stir up another "pissing contest"?

    Mine is a little more than two months old, and I use it daily in the blazing Southern California heat. As you can see from the picture I posted, it's sagging badly. Hopefully it's a fluke, but I fear that the new one I'm getting under the warranty will suffer the same fate by the end of the summer. Time will tell...

    I guess that if mine develops a sag, that I will order a Covercraft. That is what I wanted in the first place, but the wait for it to be built was a little longer, and the price was a little higher. Guess that I should know by now that you get what you pay for. Tony, since I have Steve on ignore, I don't know what he said, but my comment about the shade was on topic.
