Summer heat here in Lewisville, Texas, can be a bit extreme in the summer. If your car is sitting in the sun, it can suffer a lot of damage. Here are a few ways to keep your car protected from the Texas summer.
Park in the shade
If you can, park your car in the shade all the time. If it will be parked in one spot for most of the day, try to find a spot where the shade will fall on your car at the end of the day so it will be cooler when you come back. You can always leave the windows open a crack to lower the temperature, too, if you’re in a secure place and it won’t rain.
Wash and wax your car
Over time, the sun and heat can damage the finish on your car. Frequent washing and waxing can help remove the dirt and protect it from the sun by giving it an extra protective coat.
Use a windshield cover
When you park your car, use a windshield cover to reflect some of rays. This will help keep your car cooler and protect the interior.
Use a leather conditioner
If the car has a leather interior, you need to apply a conditioner to keep the leather protected. The sun and heat can dry and crack the leather if it is not maintained properly.
If your car’s air conditioning needs fixed or engine is overheating this summer, bring your Volkswagen to the Lewisville Volkswagen service center. We can help your car stay cool this season.
