Summer Desert Sun Can Take Years Off Car’s Life

Sun lovers can agree that although the hot summer days of the desert can be an elixir for what ails you, those punishing UV rays can also play havoc with lawn furniture, garden gnomes and more importantly, your car. It’s almost time again to pay particular attention to how the sun affects your car, and you can start by taking a quick trip to one of the Chapman Arizona dealerships for a checkup. Getting an oil change and checking fluid levels is a good way to start to prepare your car for summer. Along with a fluid check, the Chapman service techs will also give your battery an inspection, making sure it has enough pep to get you through those hot summer days. The summer heat is brutal on batteries, so it’s important to make sure it has plenty of water, all cells are working properly and the posts are kept clean. Sitting on the side of the road in 115 degree heat while waiting for help is no one’s idea of a good time.

Protect Your Paint

Make sure you wash your car frequently to keep the dirt and debris off the surface. Those bits of grime can scratch your top coat and eventually lead to a pitted or flaky finish. Apply a coat of wax at least once prior to the start of summer to help repel debris and keep water spots from forming. Don’t have a garage? Try to find a place to park in the shade or invest in a car cover to keep your vehicle from baking during the hot summer days. A cover not only protects the exterior of the car, but also helps keep the dash and rear window well from cracking. If you can’t afford a cover, at least buy a sunscreen to put in the windshield. This will not only help protect your dash, but reduce the interior temperature of your vehicle.

Check Those Belts and Hoses

Make sure you ask your Chapman Arizona service representative for a thorough inspection of all belts, hoses and rubber products. Now’s the time to replace cracked belts and wipers that are infrequently used. Monsoon season is coming with its mixture of dust and rain. Be smart and be safe by having properly maintained equipment to help you through those “end of the world” driving conditions.

Keep Those Windows Cracked

When parking your car for extended periods of time out in the heat, make sure you crack your windows just a tad to let heat escape. Interior car temperatures can rise close to 200 degrees Fahrenheit during the hottest days of the year. This not only causes cracks and blemishes on plastic or rubber products, but also can promote the release of gasses. Cracking your windows can let the gasses escape, protect your interior and make it just a bit cooler when it comes time to drive home after a long day of work.
