Keep Your Car Cool With These Tips from Toyota of N Charlotte

Tip #1: Open the windows

Heat builds up in your car all day, so by the time you’re finally out it feels like an oven. There is a way to make the heat less intense. You could leave your windows cracked open during the day so that the hot air can escape. Just make sure to keep in mind the forecast before doing this. Once you do get to your car, open the doors for a minute or so to let the air circulate and push the hot air out.

Tip #2: Keep your steering wheel cool

It’s definitely not a pleasant feeling when you get burned with your steering wheel. An easy fix for this is by having a sun shade placed on the dashboard of your car. It’ll keep your car cooler and make your steering wheel more tolerable to handle. And if you’re into fandoms, there’s plenty of sun shade themes to purchase.

Tip #3: Pick your parking spot carefully

Of course parking garages are the best places to park because it helps keep your car cool throughout the whole cabin—including the steering wheel! But if you don’t have that as an option, look for covered parking like a carport or even a shady spot from trees. Do keep in mind that when you do park near trees, you’re risking getting bird dropping on your car.

Tip #4: Cover your seats

Whether it be with seat covers or blankets, covering your seats can make the difference in you not burning your skin with the seats. Have them all over the furniture while you’re at work, and when you come back place them on the floorboards or pop them in the trunk!

Tip #5: Deal with a broken A/C

If your A/C is broken, your drive time automatically becomes miserable. Until you’re able to get your car to our N Charlotte auto service center, here are some ways you can cope with it. Have a battery powered or solar powered fan that can help circulate air and cool you off.

Of course like any other suggestions, you don’t have to follow exactly what we’re saying. But if you do, it’ll save you the trouble of getting burned.
