I am an excellent reviewer because I don't place a review until I have used the product for at least 3-6 months. This gives buyers a realistic review of what to expect with any product.
I have used this umbrella and it works as advertised. It's design is great, easy to use and very easy to get in and out of a car. The quality is great. Only complaint is that it is a little heavier, but I attribute that to the fact that it is very durable and will not break or bend if it gets beaten up in your car like other cheap umbrellas.
