Summer, although a joyful experience for us, can be taxing on our beloved vehicles. That is why we want to show you how to beat the extreme summer heat and avoid expensive repairs in 3 easy steps!
Let’s get started!
- Park in shaded places: This is one of the most basic and yet most difficult steps to pull off. The chances are that a good, shady parking lot would be out of reach in most cases. However, if it is possible, park properly, and you’ll avoid a lot of the hassle.
- Use window screen: Although not necessarily the cheapest solution, window screens are perfect for protecting the interior of your car from the infamous UV rays. Trust me; you don’t want to leave your interior unprotected on a sunny day for long. Especially the steering wheel!
- Crack your windows: This is by far the cheapest solution. Just crack them windows! However, an excellent rule of thumb is to park in slightly more populated areas if you crack your windows. After all, an experienced thief can get in very quickly.
There you have it! There’s a lot more you can implement, but the question is, should you? We often get bogged down in the details and end up not doing anything. Just stick to the fundamentals and you and your car will be fine!
