UV Protection - Lumar Air 80 or similar

My 2018 Pacifica Limited has lived with me for two weeks now and I'm getting used to it's many different ways. I've found that the alloy interior is much hotter than my 2016 T&C with black interior. My guess is because of the tri pane sunroof. I'm in central Florida and it's not even hot yet....

Has anyone had any UV protection applied to their Pacifica? I'm thinking of going to visit a local tint shop and see if there is anything they can add to the sunroof glass to maybe cut down on the added heat.

Also, does anyone know if the front windows tint is similar to that on the previous T&C. I'm also interested if anyone has added additional tint to the front windows. Thank you!

Current 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Velvet Red Limited - I'll fill in options soon, but I think the only thing missing was a spare tire.

Use the search tool (box in upper right corner) and you will find numerous discussions on window tinting for the Pacifica.

Per my signature, we have Lumar Air 80 on our front side windows. I believe the "80" is because it allows in 80% of the light (versus 50% or less on darker tints). I'm in my early 70's. Opted for this style of tint to make driving easier to see at night, especially when backing up looking over my shoulder or into the outside rearview mirror. Heat build-up wasn't much the concern as we have the lighter seats and carpet and no sunroof. Mostly concerned about UV damage to leather interior, which this stuff is supposed to greatly reduce. It was a bit more expensive than the darker tint.

As stated above, there are other existing threads on this topic... but in short, I had (forgetting brand) ceramic-based tint/film applied to every glass surface internally (obvious exception of front windshield) and I do not deal with excessive heat issues. *BUT* - in all fairness... I had this process done within days of taking delivery of my vehicle, so I do not have an accurate A/B comparison of before & after... hard to say how much of an ACTUAL difference it makes in temperature and/or UV degradation of interior... but, I always tint my vehicles anyhow, so it made sense to at least TRY one that claims to block substantial UV via ceramic material.

Thanks for your responses. I do search, but sometime answers donít exactly match the question 😀

I have an appointment tomorrow to have all surfaces covered. Front windshield and sunroof with Air 80 and rest of the windows with additional tint to legal limit. Iím looking for the biggest change to come from the sunroof, but time will tell.

I am always perplexed re: other states that allow film to be applied to the front windshield... not allowed here in Massachusetts... especially since our inspection stickers (annual removal & application) must be applied directly to the glass and are "tamper-proof". Seems foreign (to me) that applying ANY type of film to a front windshield is allowed.

We donít have inspection stickers, so that wasnít a concern. (She says quietly)

I had the car tint upgrade done yesterday.

Llumar Clear Air-80 on the front windshield and tri-pane sunroof. Upgraded rest of the windows to the legal limit. What an amazing difference in the heat inside. Not to mention how it looks from the outside.

Monday is pin striping. I'll post pictures afterwards.

Wish the car had Michelins, but at 3,000 miles not ready to change out the stock Falken just yet.

Finally went to the car wash yesterday as I was tired of cleaning off all the Florida love bugs.

I was told by my tint installer to not use anything on the inside of the windows that might have alcohol in it. ie Windex type products. If nothing is available, then use water.

My car wash uses Windex and didn't have any water spray bottles available. So I just did an exterior wash.

I know others have had lumair 80 or deeper tint applied to their windows. So what do you use to clean the interior of the windows?

Thanks much and have a great day!
