But on a serious note, I haven't noticed this. But I do have my windows tinted including a strip across the windshield. Maybe that keeps the sun from reflecting? I guess you could always try covering the area? Good luck on reducing the glare
I have definitely noticed this (and it impacts the passenger too) and I even have all of my windows (except windshield) tinted. My first attempt at trying to fix it was adhesive tint film over the shiny part of the shifter, but it turned out that film was glossy and still reflected. I have new film I'll be trying that has a matte finish.
I really didn't want to get drawn into this thread. But I have a similar issue, not with the shifter of course, because my hand is on it. And its never sunny in Michigan. My problem, and its not a problem, but is related.. is the chrome ring around the steering column is reflected onto the windshield. Years ago there were articles about light dash material or metal, and the reflections it would cause in the glass and why certain materials are best, etc etc. So I am surprised by the chrome ring exists from FCA, and they didn't notice reflection/glare it casts on the windshield. Sure I could do something about it, but, as I mentioned before... Michigan... no sun... Oh, FCA is Michigan too, maybe that's why.
Shifter has not bothered me... yet. Thanks a whole heap for giving it bad ideas...
What I HAVE noticed is with the near vertical side windows I pick up all the interior light reflections at night and my peripheral vision keeps telling me there's something outside next to me. Going on 8 months now and it still keeps telling me the Same. Dang. Thing!
