Welcome to Complete Automotive’s May blog! We’re looking into how to beat the heat in Springfield this summer.
The summer heat can brutally damage your car and can make you miserable as a driver. Left unchecked, the sunshine that makes for beautiful outside weather also scorches the air in your vehicle and absorbs it into the dashboard and interior. Like a hot plate, the heat refuses to go away just because you need to get in your car and get moving.
With a little bit of foresight, shopping, and care, you can make your car a much cooler place in the summertime. There are three things you should address before July:
Plan out your trips. When you need to go shopping, try to pick a place with underground parking or available shade somewhere. The extra walk you take will be worth it to find your vehicle cool when you return to it. Try to pick places with shade, or shop in the evening when possible.
Make lists. Don’t just turn up at a store knowing you need to buy a list of groceries that exists only in your memory. Take the time to make a list of all the things you need in advance of getting into the car. The less time you spend working this out in the grocery store, the less time the vehicle sits in the potentially sweltering heat.
Bring your car to us. Get your car checked out for summer by bringing it for an inspection. We can top up those fluids and make sure the air conditioning is working correctly, as these things affect you and your car’s performance.
Fluids are vital in prolonging the life of your car. Our Lifetime Protect Plan is helpful in our goal to get your vehicle to 300,000 miles and beyond. Let us show you how to get 300,000 miles or more out of your car with proper maintenance. To hear more about the plan, click here, or call Complete Automotive for more details.
