Now that we’re in the heart of summer here in Kansas City, many drivers are looking for ways to keep their cars cool. Summer is a great season for getting outside and enjoying the weather, but it also can mean a little extra work for your vehicle. To help you keep cool this summer, our expert dealers at Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM want to give you the best summer car care tips for getting the most out of your vehicle. 

Keeping your car cool can be difficult during the summer if you don’t have access to covered parking. We recommend trying to park in the shade as much as possible to keep your car from sitting in direct sunlight. If you have to park in the open, window shades are a great way to keep out heat. Additionally, leaving your windows slightly cracked allows hot, stuffy air to escape, preventing the inside of your car from getting too hot.

Air conditioning can be a godsend this time of year, but if you don’t bring your vehicle in for a check-up regularly, you may not know if your air conditioning is working like it should. If the air pumping from your vents takes a while to cool down your car, schedule a service appointment with us so we can get your air conditioning working correctly. Once your air conditioning is working again, you can try this simple trick for quickly cooling the inside of your car. Turn your air conditioning all the way up and roll down your back windows for about ten seconds. That way, hot air can escape from your vehicle, cooling off your car faster.

You should always give your car the maintenance it needs to keep it running in extreme conditions. Stop by our expert service center and we’ll check all of your vehicle’s components, from your coolant levels to your tire pressure, to make sure all is running well. If you need anything repaired, our service technicians are happy to assist. Visit our Kansas City, KS dealership today and we’ll help you keep cool all summer long.
