Greetings folks! My wife and I just welcomed a son to the world on Saturday night! :D :D

The little fella is doing fine, but the tinting on the side windows isn't cutting it. Does anyone have any suggestions of side window shades that fit the Pilot?

Thanks!

Well, before there were such things as window tinting and sun shades, we used pillow cases and towels...

:D

Congrats, BTW! Does your infant seat have a canopy?

Thanks very much. Yes, the seat does have a canopy, but it doesn't go all the way over.

We had a safety 1st on our Passat. You're right, it was lame. I'm off to Babies R Us to see what else they've got.

I don't have any suggestions, all the aftermarket sunshade products I've seen pretty much suck. When my son was still in an infant carseat (he's in a convertible carseat now), sometimes if the sun was really glaring, I would just adjust the canopy so it would cover more of his face. We started out with a Graco Snugride, but because he was a preemie, we needed a seat with a 4lb minimum (Graco is 5lb min.) before they would release him from the hospital, so we went out and bought a Chicco Keyfit - and both seats had adjustable canopies.

I always felt the factory tint was good enough, and if the sun was in his eyes for a few minutes, my son would just sneeze a couple of times and close his eyes. Unless you're driving in a straight line for a LOONG time, as the road curves and you make turns, the sun will hit other areas of the vehicle.

I've got a direct East-West commute and found the static cling window shades were useless for my baby (who was just moved up to a convertible seat that doesn't have a sunshade canopy). I'm getting the windows tinted darker. FYI, I read the roller shades are unsafe (projectiles in a crash).

HTH!

One step ahead has a sunshade that will cover the whole side window. Just check their website.
