5 seat MX can't stay cool in 93 degree weather

Can you keep your 5-seat MX cool on 95+ degree days without window tinting?

Have a 2020 Model X five seater. 93 degrees yesterday and I can't keep it cool. I was burning up in the sun with only myself(and driver vents) in the car. I'm using the sunshade that came with it. Does every model X (5 seater) owner in this southern region have this problem? Is anyone with a five seat MX able to make Texas summers work without window tinting?

You don't necessarily need the windows "tinted", but you do need heat rejection film. The ceramic films such as 3M crystalline or XPEL Prime can look almost clear but still block most heat energy. Search this site for hundreds of posts discussing window film.

Heat rejection film on the windshield helps tremendously on the X. I would note that if you use polarized eyeglasses, there's a possibility of introducing annoying halo effects into your field of vision.

I have tinted the roof on S & 3. That also helps, of course.
