Welcome to the May blog for Brown Motor Works Northeast! We hope spring has been kind to you and you are working your way towards a productive summer. With the pandemic beginning to lift and people finally beginning to get their vaccinations, it looks like we might be in for a jam-packed summer all over the U.S.
And with summer on the horizon, it’s a good moment to consider what needs to be done to your car before the sun is at its most destructive in August. Left unchecked, the sun’s rays can be pretty harsh on a car’s interior and can make driving a painful experience. Here are our top three suggestions for keeping it cool this summer:
Good planning can spare you the heat. Remember that you have multiple options for where to shop, so plan your trips ahead of time, knowing all the things you need to get. Try to pick a place with some options for parking in the shade or, at the very least, out of the direct line of the sun.
Gear up. Invest in a sunscreen blocker for your front window. Also, consider some treatment products to protect your dash and your interior.
Get your car checked out. Your vehicle needs coolant to be topped up, and your A/C needs to be in good running order. Remember that your A/C also has a hand in regulating your engine temperature… so protecting your A/C benefits your car, as well.
If you need someone to inspect your car for summer readiness, please stop by our Brown Motor Works Northeast location at 520 Clemson Rd., Columbia, SC 29229, or schedule an appointment online. We specialize in BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Mini Coopers, so you can feel confident your vehicle is in good hands with our highly-skilled technicians.
