2013 Infiniti JX35: How To Deal With the Sun
May 15, 2013
Even though we drove to Mammoth in the long-term 2013 Infiniti JX35 for a snow weekend, it was warm and sunny out. And, yes, amazingly there still was snow on those peaks. But during a long road trip there IS such a thing as too much sun.
For driver JayKav, on the return trip home, it meant sun blinging off the chrome of the center console and right into his eyeballs like a laser beam. For me it was the unwanted three-hour suntanning session in the passenger seat.
Here's how we dealt with it.
I was able to extend the sun visor to serve as a clothesline for this makeshift curtain. Thank goodness for that extension, else the right side of my face and body would have burnt to a crisp.
JayKav wasn't as lucky, however. We couldn't throw a shirt on the center console because that would mean covering the screen, too. So he just drove with his hand like so. But since the road leaving Mammoth was straight for the most part, he didn't have to move his hand. Maybe next time we'll be sure to pack some painter's tape.
