1) The car door visors allow the windows of the car to be kept open in the event of light rain, so that you can enjoy the rains as well as ensure that the car wind shields does not fog up due to the humidity.
2) The car door visors also act as sun blockers from the side of the vehicle which can be uncomfortable to the driver or the passengers.
3) Car door visors also act as wind deflectors and reduce the wind noise inside the cabin, especially at high speeds.
4) The door visors also improve the aerodynamic stance of the car and provide an aesthetic appeal.

Most commercially available car door visors are quite easy to install and can be done in minutes. Depending on the type of the door visor, it can either be slid into the channel of the window or can also be stuck to the lip of the window using strong industrial grade tape. Some door visors come with flaps that can be snapped right into the place. Since the door visors are usually manufactured for particular vehicles and trims, there is generally no mismatch in the sizes and the procedure is quite smooth. Many door visor kits also come with rubbing alcohol to clean the car surface before and after the installation of the visors.

There are various kinds of door visors that are available in the market and of multiple brands. Some auto companies actually have car door visors in their list of original accessories too and can be installed at the authorised service station of the vehicle itself.
