How to Protect Your Vehicle from the Sun This Summer | West Harrison, IN

Indiana summer months are packed with fun. You’re preparing for late-night baseball games, weekends at the lake, and road trips with friends and family. But are you also preparing your Chevrolet vehicle for the harsh summer sun? Our friendly team at Hirlinger Chevrolet has a few handy tips to protect your Chevy this summer.

Your Chevy vehicle’s exterior is first to meet the sun’s harsh rays, which can fade and even crack the paint over time. To combat this, we recommend frequent car washes. Go a step further to shield your vehicle’s paint by applying car wax.

The interior is not safe from the harmful effects of the sun, either. It’s best to avoid direct sunlight by parking in the shade and placing sun visors in the front and rear windows. You can keep your seats cooler with seat covers. And if your Chevy has leather seats, use a leather conditioner frequently to help prevent cracks or tears.

The summer heat can do a number on tires, so be sure to double-check your tire pressure often. Safeguard your vehicle’s mechanical systems by checking fluid levels, air filters, and the battery.

Whatever your plans are, bring your Chevy by our service drive at Hirlinger Chevrolet in West Harrison, Indiana, and we’ll be happy to make sure it’s summer-ready.
