Motor Trend Frost Guard No Scrape Windshield Protector
not wide enough for Van windshield
this is not wide enough for my husband's 250 Dodge van windshield. it does not fit at all. make a larger one for larger windshields as other people have requested. it is now my son's for his Lexus. Too much cost to return.
Great Time Saver!
My wife and I each received a Frost Guard for Christmas. What a time saver in the morning! We get lots of frost and ice here in Michigan, and now we don't spend any time scraping the windshield in the morning. The Frost Guard covers the large, main area of the windshield and the defroster takes care of the edges while we're driving down the road. The Frost Guard gets it done! Recommend!!!
what a blessing
I love this product. I leave very early in the morining for work, this product has saved me time when Igo off to work. I have used it about 5 or 6 times on the days when I know there will be cold temps at night. Each time I have gone out and just took off the protector, and off I go . It really is a great product an is so easy . I would recommend this to everyone who has no access to parking in doors. Thank you for this product.
love the idea, a little dissappointed
I bought 4 of these for Christmas gifts, my husband loved his, when I asked my son-in-law how he liked his he said his blew down to the hood. At first I thought he must have put it on wrong but low and behold my husbands did the same thing on more than one occasion. The magnets are useless, so while we love the concept, they need some improvement!!
Not a keeper
Sorry but this is getting returned. During the presentation, they say that if fits nearly every model vehicle since there are many ways to make the straps fit. I have a 2007 Jeep Patriot, and it did NOT fit right no matter how many ways that I adjusted the straps around the mirrors. We had a windy ice storm and I was excited to use this for the first time! I looked out my bedroom window at my Jeep in my apartment parking lot and the wind was getting right underneath it from the top since it didn't fit right and was pulling it up badly I was afraid it would damage my mirror so I had to go out and remove it.
So it seems like a great concept, but it does NOT fit every vehicle even close. I guess it's just a gamble if it will fit yours. It would be better if they had several versions to fit different car types.....SUVs, (small), SUVs (large), cars ...etc.
I have a great big 1986 Chevy C-10 pickup truck.. while it doesn't cover the entire width, it covers enough so I only have a few inches to remove ice/snow.. this is sooo much better than the flimsy ones with magnets.. (some review said something about the magnets not working??? There aren't any!!! That's why it stays put!! You HAVE to sling it around the side mirrors!) I pull it so the driver side is completely covered & the extra few inches uncovered is on the passenger side.. The strong bars on each side are great! You just tweek it to get a custom fit.. I put the wipers on the outside when there was ice here & didn't get any ice on my windshield!! My car had such a thick layer, cause I don't have one for it.. but I have ordered another!! Love it.. my silly flimsy ones with magnets are horrid & don't work for a large cumbersome truck!!!
Here in VT we have had our share of snow. This product has saved me alot of work. it is worth its weight in gold I do recommend it to all who live in snow country. It works fine on my RAV 4 however I cannot wait for the SUV size to come out. Thanks for a great product.
Not bad but--
I works great if you can decide if you want the bottom of the windshield or the top covered. It stays in place with no problem but really needs to be made wider to cover top to bottom. I just wish it came down enough to cover the wipers but leaves to much exposed on the bottom.
I bought this before Christmas and it is great. The only one thing I would change about it is size.I would make it in 2 sizes because we have SUV or trucks in they do not cover the window all the way.I am stll happy with the Windshield protector as it leaves most off the window clear...
We own an SUV and yes it works....covered most all of the window and made the removal of any left uncovered at a minimum.
Wind whipped constantly
I try to be positive about most things, but this will not stay put on my windshield. I have a Ford Escape under a large carport. The wind usually swirls snow around to just my windshield,so thought this would work. Also bought one for my nephew. They just will not stay put. In fact I went out to my suv and the protector flipped and filled with snow like a bowl! The protector is well made, but needs better straps to hold in place. I'm going to adapt mine with velcro so it will be a snug fit on mirrors and hope it helps.
i don't like it
on my 03 jetta i came out of work to find this blown down from windshield and laying on the hood magnets are useless, on my full size van the elastic maxed out and will not last and it only covers the center of the windshield . i paid 20 bucks it's not worth the cost to send it back...
