Summer is here again. While ‘sun and fun’ is likely on the itinerary, you’ll also be sure to make sure you’re staying cool as things heat up. It would be a good idea to pay your car that same courtesy. Helping your vehicle adjust to the temperature fluctuation of the seasons is a great way to extend its lifetime. Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM in Cinncinati, OH, is here with a few ideas to help you do just that.

Sun Shading
As great as the sun can be, in certain instances, it can be damaging if you don’t take steps to protect against it. That goes for your car too. Sunshades can help protect your car when you aren’t using it. If you put sunshades in the windshield and the window in the back when the car is not in use, you’re far less likely to find an inferno when you open the car door. They can also protect from sun damage and fading caused by prolonged exposure to solar rays. If that’s not enough, certain models even come complete with solar panels to charge your battery.

Coolant is paramount in the summer months. Cars can run fairly warm as it is due to the nature of the machine. They hardly need any help from external heat sources. Your coolant system is designed to keep your car at a manageable temperature, but leaks, cracks, and disconnections can cause the system to not work properly. At our Chrysler service center, our technicians will ensure things are working as they should.

Additional Fluids
Keeping track of fluid levels is one of those things that’s best to do year round, but especially in the summer and especially if you have any road trips planned. Pay special attention to oil, brake, power steering, and windshield washer fluids. In our Chrysler parts department, we stock what you’ll need to get your vehicle ready for the summer.
