Keeping a Cool Car this Summer

Honestly, when was the last time you checked the weather report? Not anything surprising, really, but it looks as though we’re going to be swimming though 90 degree weather for a while! That said, it’s important to keep your vehicle a manageable temperature in this time of intense heat.

However, we know better than anyone that keeping your car a cool temperature in Texas is more of an art than a science. Luckily, your local Corpus Christi TX Auto Repair is here to give you some valuable tips on how to accomplish room-temperature bliss in your car:

Park in the Shade

Sounds like a drop in the bucket, but trust me—you can NEVER underestimate your desire to get the closest parking spot to your destination. I’ve seen it happen—there could be a perfectly shady spot under a tree a mere 40 feet away, and you’d still go for the closer spot on the sunbaked asphalt. Your local Corpus Christi Brake Repair wants you to know that parking in the shade can make your car significantly cooler!

Window Tinting/Sunshades

Sometimes, even if you tirelessly look for a shady spot, one won’t be available. The solution? Your local Corpus Christi Car Repair recommends one of two solutions: window tinting and/or sunshades. Both of these options are affordable, and your Corpus Christi Mechanic says this can make your car up to 60% cooler!

Damp Rags

Your local Corpus Christi Oil Change shop recommends having damp rags handy on extra hot days. Believe it or not, the evaporation takes some of the heat with it when you wipe down hot surfaces, like leather or metal seat belt buckles.
