Question Factory Window Tinting Percent?

Question: What percent is the factory window tinting on the cube?


Please leave any suggestions for Cube Window Tinting. My plan is to carry the factory tint level to the front windows of the car.

(I can't find an answer to this question, I want to be sure I know before having windows tinted.)

Thanks!

The rear windows are approximately 30%. I had mine tinted with a 37% film, the plain glass is 2%, so I have a 35% tint THAT IS the legal limit in Oregon. The rear doors are very slightly darker. Every State and Province has legislation that limits how dark you can go. look at http://tintlaws.com to see what you are allowed to go.I have seen a local cop test the tint with a hand-held device that he had in his cruiser. I initially wanted a slightly darker tint; the Dealer suggested that I might as well go really dark because the ticket would still be the same. I changed my mind and went with the legal limit.

ps, I paid $100 to have the two front windows tinted.

Great, thanks for your feedback. I did some further review and learned that the rear doors have a 20% tint from the factory. I'm probably going to tint the driver and passenger windows with a 20% tint to match.

New York State has a 30% limit, which is kind of crazy, but it's not worth getting a ticket over tinting.

20% is darker than 30%. If you are in NY and tint to 20% you may be looking at a ticket.

On my 2012, the tint gut said the back (doors + back) was around 35%.

That's good to know....

I guess I wasn't clear on the tinting- New York State does not allow more than 30% of the light to be blocked. I was thinking of carrying the same tint percent up front the the driver and passenger window. I am having a new stereo installed in my Cube, so i'm really thinking about having this done. From what I hear, it's not uncommon for people to break in and take them. Maybe i'm paranoid

Good to know.. 20% seems to be a decent tint. Its nice to have this standard on the car- without paying it out of pocket.
