Choosing the Right Car Sun Shade: A Guide to Avoid Mistakes

December 8, 2020 Off By RVSUNSHADES

Selecting the correct car sun shade for your vehicle can be a bit perplexing, especially if your car model spans multiple generations, creating potential confusion. Take, for example, the HYUNDAI Santa Fe, where the 2018 model falls into the overlapping period between the 3rd Gen DM/NC ix45 (2012-2018) and the 4th Gen TM (2018-Present).

How to Ensure You’re Buying the Right Set:

To avoid purchasing a set that doesn’t fit your vehicle, the key is to confirm the accurate build code of your car. The best place to find this information is in your car insurance policy. Look for the Build Code, which is typically a two-letter code assigned by the manufacturer to distinguish the generation of the model.

For example, if your car insurance policy states “HYUNDAI Santa Fe 3rd Gen DM 2012-2018,” the correct build code is “DM.” This ensures you select the right car shades for your specific vehicle model.


Why Build Code Matters:

The overlap of generations often occurs when purchasing vehicles during year-end sales or as run-out models. Dealers may clear older builds to make room for new stock.


Understanding your vehicle’s build code becomes crucial in such scenarios to avoid compatibility issues.
