How to Keep Your Car Cool in the Summer

There’s no right or wrong way to keep your car cool in the summer. In fact, there are many different steps you can take to help reduce the amount of heat that enters your vehicle’s cabin, especially when you’re parked. Let’s take a look at how to keep your car cool in the summer:

  • Find Shade: Whether it’s underneath a tree or in a parking garage, finding shade wherever you go to park can greatly reduce the temperature inside your vehicle’s cabin.
  • Get Sunshades: We know it’s not always possible to park in a shaded area. However, you can opt for a sunshade that covers your windows to help block the sun. Visit one of our parts centers, and we can even help you find the right sunshade for your vehicle.
  • Steering Wheel & Dashboard Covers: Removing sunshades can sometimes get tiresome, but you can always opt for cloth or vinyl steering wheel and dashboard covers to help keep your steering wheel cool and protect your dashboard.
  • Open Your Windows: You can always open your windows a small amount to help circulate some cool air inside the cabin. Of course, do this with caution as you don’t want to leave your vehicle unattended with its windows open.
  • Tint Your Windows: Check local laws regarding window tints, but if it’s allowed, opting for window tints can help block out some heat from entering your vehicle.
  • Utilize Remote Start: Many of our new vehicles are equipped with remote start, and using it to start your vehicle before you leave can help cool the cabin.
