    Default Car window covers

    Hey
    I need to get some covers for my back car windows. Which one s are better. The round ones that stick inside the car or the ones that go over the top of the door?

    Default Car window covers

    I bought the ones that go over the doors, $15 for a set at super cheap autos. I haven't had any issues with mine. They keep the sun off DS and are easy to see out of. I like that they cover the whole window so no little cracks of bright light on DS. They are easy to take off and put back on too

    Wow that's cheap! Are they made to fit your specific car doors?

    I bought some window sox of eBay that fit my car perfectly, they were around $40 though

    $40 doesn't seem excessive. Especially if you had trouble finding ones that fit. I have a RAV 4 and just bought 2 standard roll-up types for $15 each.

    Window sox - the ones that go over your window are definitely the way to go.

    I'm looking at getting 'Toddler Tints' when newbie arrives in a few months. I used the round suction sort with DS and once he could reach them he would continually pull them off and pull the suction caps out of the shade piece. We travel a lot on gravel roads so the ones that go over the outside of the window aren't really an option for us.

    I brought patterned ones from toddlertints (google for link). $40 and you can get a girly type with butterflies, or an animal print.

    They're great because you cut them to size and stick on the inside - kids get cute pics but can also see through. You can't see them from the outside at all and can still wind down windows etc too.

    They were a one size fits all kind, for cars with curved back doors... They had a few others one size fits all there too
