During the summer, the sun's rays can take a toll on your car's exterior. Getting this damage to your car's paint job repaired can be quite pricey. To avoid this sort of damage, use these tips.

Easy Ways to Keep Your Car Protected from the Heat

You may enjoy the warmer weather in the summer, but for your car, this change in the climate can be no good. Not only can the heat just add to high temperatures under the hood, but it can also mean damage to your car's exterior. To learn how to keep your car happy even when it's hot, check out these tips.

Stay in the Shade

If you've ever gotten a sunburn from being out in the sun too long, then think of what can happen to your car after a day exposed to those UV rays. Your car's paint can get seriously damaged, causing it to fade and even crack. That's not the only part that will get damaged either. Plastic parts on your car's exterior can also fade and dry up as a result of sun exposure. The easiest way to prevent all of this damage is by keeping your car in the shade. At home, keep your car in the garage or in a shady spot. If you're out running errands, look for a parking spot that has shade to reduce the damage to your car. A car cover is also a good idea if you don't have a covered space for your car.

Invest in a Sun Protector

Not only can the sun damage your car's exterior, but these harmful rays can also reach your car's interior. Areas like your dashboard and steering can suffer serious damage, so it's important that you find a way to keep this all covered. Since these areas can dry up, crack, or peel, you'll want to be sure whatever you use keeps these parts out of the sun. An easy way to keep these areas covered is with a simple windshield sun shade. Carry this in your car so that you can place it in your dashboard any time you leave your car.

Wash Your Car

Washing your car may not seem like it does much for the exterior, but it can help keep it protected. It's a great idea to wash your car every two weeks and dry it so that you can remove any built-up dust and debris that can lead to damage to your paint which can be furthered by the sun. After a wash, be sure to wax your car. This one task will create a barrier between your car's paint and the elements, helping to keep your paint protected from the sun's rays. Give your car a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville to keep it running strong. Using a synthetic oil like AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil can keep your car's engine cleaner. You can find more products like this by contacting the oil pros at Huff Oil Group. Give them a call at (978) 259-5463 to get your questions answered or to place your order!

Keep Your Seats Protected

Another part of your car's interior that can suffer damage during the summer are the seats. Leather seats will crack if left exposed to the sun for a long time, which won't only bring down your car's value but can also be very uncomfortable. To keep these and fabric seats protected, invest in seat covers. These will shield your car's seats from the sun and can also keep them cooler so that they're not uncomfortable to use.

Check on Your Tires

The sun can heat everything up, including the asphalt you're driving on. These high temperatures can then affect your car's tires. If your tires are under-inflated, this can actually lead to a blowout. To prevent this from happening, be sure to check your tire pressure often and keep your tires at the recommended level. It's also important to check your tire tread and the sidewalls just to be sure they aren't damaged, which can be made worse over the summer.
