How to Keep Your Car Cool When Parked

Chevy Silverado

Few things are as unpleasant as sitting in a car that’s been baking in the summer sun for hours. Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to keep your car cool, no matter how intense the heat is.

Use a visor or sunshade

This is an oldie but a goodie. A simple sunshade or visor placed over your windshield will work wonders to keep your car cool. For additional heat protection, lay a sunshade in your rear window.

Drape a towel over your steering wheel

Leave a hand towel over your steering wheel when it’s parked. This little trick should help to keep the temp down so you don’t have to touch a scalding-hot steering wheel.

Park in the shade

If you can snag a spot under a tree or behind a building, do so. Keeping your car out of direct sunlight is the best way to keep it cool.

Keep your windows open

Leaving your windows open just a crack can enhance ventilation and drastically cool down your car. Just make sure that a hand can’t fit in so you don’t make it easier for car thieves.

We at Steve Austin’s Auto Group hope these tricks help keep your car cool this summer. We invite you to come take a test drive at our dealership and find the vehicle that’s right for you.
