As temperatures start to heat up this summer, your car may suffer under the sun. While you can't avoid the sun, there are some things you can do to reduce the sun damage it receives this season.

Prevent Sun Damage to Your Car This Summer

If you put on sunblock any time you're planning to leave your house during the summer then you know just how harsh the sun's rays can be. What you might not know is that the sun can also cause serious damage to your car's exterior. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to keep your car protected no matter how intense the sun gets this summer.

Wash and Wax Your Car Regularly

Your car is exposed to just about everything, from sunshine to rain. Unfortunately for your exterior, most of these things can be quite corrosive and damaging. During the summer months, the sunshine can cause some serious fading as well as cracks in your paint. On top of that, dirt and other debris can lead to scratches and more damage to your car's paint job. To avoid some of this damage, make time to wash, dry, and wax your car regularly. Washing your car will allow you to remove the layer of dirt and grime that can lead to scratches in your paint. While you may be tempted to let your car air dry, this can lead to water spots and even fading. Once you've dried your car, don't skip the wax. By adding a layer of wax to your car's exterior you are giving it an extra layer of protection from the elements, so it's definitely worth the effort.

Keep Your Fluids Right

If you're not familiar with your car's cooling system, just know that it does the hard work to keep operating temperatures under the hood manageable. Since things can really start to heat up over the summer, it's important that your cooling system is working efficiently. This means your coolant should still be good and present at the proper level. On top of that, the rest of the components in your cooling system should be working smoothly. This means no clogs in your radiator, no leaks in your hoses, no broken fans, and no worn out belts. As you check on your car this summer, don't forget to check your motor oil. If it's time for some new oil, be sure to get a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville. A great oil like AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil can help keep your engine in better condition for longer, no matter how hot it gets outside.

Look for Shady Parking

While it may be impossible to avoid the sun while driving, there are many instances in which you can avoid it while parked. Whether you're running errands or parking outside your office, choose a shady parking space even if it means walking a little further than normal. This small move can do a lot to protect your car's exterior and interior from the sun. If you have a garage at home, use this to store your car during sunlight hours. If you don't have a garage, a covered parking space can get the job done.

Get a Car Cover

If you have neither a garage nor a covered parking space, another great option is a car cover. Not only will this protect your car from sun damage, but it can also reduce the amount of dust and debris it collects out in the open. Another thing to consider is getting seat covers. If you have leather seats, seat covers will protect them from sun damage that can leave them dry and cracking. A budget-friendly alternative is getting a windshield cover. These tend to be very inexpensive but effective in keeping the sun out of your car. Not only do they reflect the sun's harsh rays, but they also help keep temperatures in your car more manageable even when your car has been in the sun for a while.
