June is finally here, and man, it’s hot! Whether you’re in the backyard, relaxing by the pool, or catching some waves at the beach, you’ll be working up a sweat. If you park your car outdoors, one of the worst parts of the summer heat here in Huntersville, NC is that after a long day at work, you have to take a seat in a scorching hot vehicle that may take a few minutes to cool off. If you want to protect your vehicle from the unbearable, southern summer heat, keep your ride as chilled as possible with these cool tips!

Use a Sunshade

If your car feels like it’s on fire, sometimes it’s best to go back to the basics. If you think sunshades are outdated, you thought wrong. When you exit your car, put your sunshade on the window. It will block out the sun and ensure it’s cooler when you return!

Cover the Dash

Now that you have the window covered, go the extra mile by also covering your dash. Grab an upholstered or fabric-material cover to make the heat escape! Not only will these tricks keep you cool, but they will protect these parts of your vehicle from sun damage and discoloration.

And Your Steering Wheel

If you immediately put your hands on your steering wheel after it’s been in the sun, it’s going to burn, so don’t forget to cover up your steering wheel as well. Keep a hand towel in the car to cover your steering wheel. That way, you can use it at ease as soon as you get in your vehicle.

Park in the Shade

When you can, it’s always a better idea to park in the shade, even if that means you have to walk a little! You’ll be happy you did later on.

Crack Windows

If you slightly crack your windows, the heat will be able to escape. Although, only do it a little because you wouldn’t want them to be open wide enough to where someone could steal something. Before you do this, check the forecast to ensure there aren’t any summer storms coming.
