Installed these a few days ago. They keep the rain from coming in the window, especially when you first get in your car and drive off with the window open. Without these installed, water comes pouring off the roof and in the window, making the door and window controls wet, which might short them out. When driving, it keeps the rain from getting inside. Had another brand of these on my last vehicle, but they were stuck onto the door, thus attaching to the paint. These slide into the window slots, and fit neatly onto the vehicle. There is a small piece of double stick tape on the rear window deflectors, which probably is not really necessary, but will better adhere them to the window slot. Unlike the front deflectors, the rear ones are not shaped with a boomerang type curve. They are a very tight fit, but just follow the directions, and the acrylic flexes enough and will not break upon installation...though I was concerned that the amount of flex needed to install them would break them.
These fitted rain vent inserts are the best looking and very easy to install. They are so much better than the stick on model which I had and had to regularly replace the tape because the wind resistance would cause them to start pulling loose. THese are far superior and priced comparable to the stick on. I liked so much that I got a set for all four doors. They were also easy to order and delivery was well within the the time stated. An added plus is the warranty from AutoSport. It's one of the best fo all the auto parts suppliers. Can't go wrong with a company that has so many positive aspects. I will always go to AutoSports first for my needs.
The double back tape on the ends does not even hold itself. This is the second set because one from the first set fell out. On the second set the backing tape came right off one when peeling the protective cover off. The other one would not stick in the window slot. So if you buy this protect go the the hardware store and get some wider double back tape and cover the ends completely to make sure it stays in the window track. On the flip side they do work to let air in and keep the rain out.

I have had similar products on my vehicles since they've been making them, but these are the best so far. Easy to install by following the directions. Use these so you can leave one or more windows down a half inch for ventilation and a windshield "reflector sunshade" and it is noticeably cooler even in the broiling Texas heat. Saves that interior and the car cools off quicker.
I purchased the front and rear WeatherTech wind and rain deflectors for my new 2013 Toyota Prius. They arrived in perfect shape, the installation was quick and easy, and the usefulness and appearance of these items is fabulous. They really are custom-made, but I've had many people comments on them and say how they look custom-fitted for the car, are better than the ones sold by Toyota, and how great they look on the car. They also work exactly as they are supposed to, allowing air into the vehicle even on a windy and rainy day without any moisture getting into the vehicle. I would give them my highest rating. Love the look, the fit and the finish.
This is one product I purchase for all the automobiles I own. It's a quality product that fits inside the window track without imparing window operation and does not detract from the automobile's appearance. And the benefits of ownership are many. Catch a breeze on a rainey day without getting wet, clear the cabin of smoke without having the loud sound of rushing air, and vent the cabin without having to give a carjacker a large opening to work in! They are great!
