Motor Trend Frost Guard No Scrape Windshield Protector
I tried it once. the wind caught it after it was installed on the car and it acted like sail. I managed to get it back on the car and left it alone while I was in my class (3 hours). When I came out, it had been flipped over many times and was all tangled up.
If the snow is gently falling and there isn't any wind - I think it would work fine, but the wind made it more trouble than it was worth.
Waste of money
I used it once at work. When I came out, the snow had blown underneath and I still had to
brush snow off my minivan windshield. There is no point to wasting my time attaching it
when it won't protect my windshield anyway.
This would have been great if it worked as advertised. Pretty expensive for a 1 time use.
Beats scraping in the cold anyday!!!
Yes, it is a little short and the bottom of my window might have some frost on it but I do not need to see out of that portion as I am heading down the road. I am above that. You have to make sure the wind isn't blowing too much or it will whip it about so don't use it on windy days (frost won't be on windy days anyway). You cannot use it when it has rained and then turned cold that night because it will have ice under the protector and might stick (that was once for me) but other than those you need to know about, it has saved me more scraping and running my car (or forgetting to run my car) / burning gas up and I say definitely BUY!
Ice/Snow Be Gone
I bought this for my husband's car and he loves it. He leaves early in the morning for work and here in NJ, we have had a lot of cold, icy weather. It keeps his windshield free of the ice and snow. Now he can just get in the car and go. No more waiting until the windows defrost and no more scraping. What a great timesaver!
Works but too small
I'm using this on a Subaru Impreza- granted its a compact, but the front windshield seems too big for it to be protected.The area it does cover, works well, but the Motor Trend frost guard is just too narrow to really help protect your total windshield. My windshield is exposed above and below this cover leaving the wiper blades exposed .
not worth it
if it is the slighest bit windy the cover flaps around and gets tangled.
dont buy it
Great Product with Stains and Smells of Mildew
Perfect for my SUV Toyota Rav 4. The only complaints I have, is that it smelled awfully bad like mildew and it had yellow stains on it. I feel that this item was a return item and they sent back out to me as another customer. I am very displeased with this. I will return it for a NEW one. It's not good business to do this to customers when they pay good money for these items, expecting them to be new. I like the thought of not having to go out and scrap my windshield. I would have given it a 5 star, but knowing that this had to be a return due to stains and smell, I refused to do this. I look forward to a new one.
Not Large Enough for Mini Vans, But Beats Scraping
Really only covers the middle of the windshield on my husband's mini van, but it is much better than scraping. We've had no problem with it blowing/moving.
Love it!!!! It goes on and off so easy! great time saver..great for heavy frost* not snow
Morning time saver
I purchased two of this covers for myself and my fiance and we both like them very much. The cover does a great job of keeping the windshield clear of frost and ice. Occassionally we have issues with it moving if winds are strong, but there are weights at the top to help with this. If the weights were more significant it might prevent this from happening. This product is a must if you do not have a garage and live in a climate with snow. It is very easy to put on and take off of your vehicle.
How Did I LIve Without It !!!
Saw this being presented and thought it would be helpful during the winter months. Now I wonder how I lived without it. Has made things so much easier and in the end safer..no more temptation to start out before the entire windshield is clear. Also no more standing in the wind, cold, snow or sleet clearing the windshield. A most for anyone with an automobile that sits out. All my neighbors want to know where I got it....
Also has been great for the parking area at work..at the end of the day just remove the protector and take off!!
When I saw this being presented I said I had to have it. I also ordered one for my Husband, who is usually not interested in what QVC is offering, he thinks I just bye everything. Well, it arrived and we had to wait a little to use it, but, quess what, he likes it and I love it. I listen to the weather report and if it reports anything about ice and snow, on goes the cover, it really works. I have seen that others said it should be longer on the window, maybe, on my car it leaves the bottom open about 4inches, whick I think lets the window frost work. So,we are very pleased with our window quards and I'm sure you will be too. My Husband wants you to know he's the one who usually puts it on my window, lol.
