We all know summers in Michigan can be beautiful, but sometimes the sun’s rays get to be too much, especially for our vehicles. No one wants to go back to a hot, stuffy car after a day at the beach, so to help you beat the heat, follow these simple tips from our automotive experts at Mike Riehl’s Roseville Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM.

Get Your Windows Tinted

One way to keep the sun’s rays at bay, and to add some style to your ride, is by tinting your windows. Tinted windows block more sunlight than normal windows, which could help keep your car cooler. However, check your local laws before having your windows darkened, as some towns place restrictions on how much or which windows you’re allowed to tint. 

Invest in a Sunshade 

Sunshades are designed to block direct UV rays from coming into your vehicle, working to lower the interior temperature. As an added bonus, sunshades also help to prevent your dashboard from cracking or fading in the sun, allowing your new Chrysler model to remain in tip-top shape. 

Find Covered Parking

If you don’t want to invest in tinted windows or a sunshade, an obvious alternative is to park in a garage or in the shade. That way, you won’t have to leave your car in direct sunlight for multiple hours. If you don’t have access to shade and your car has vinyl or leather upholstery like the new 2019 Chrysler 300, you can always angle your parked car so that the sun hits your rear window before your front windshield, preventing your steering wheel and front seats from heating up.
