In a recent blog post, we shared some ideas for summer road trips. Having worked as a Dodge dealer serving San Diego, CA and surrounding areas for as long as we have, we can tell you one thing for sure—no matter where you go, it can be a challenge to ensure your car will be comfortable after it’s been parked in the heat for a while.

While that’s true, there’s no reason to resign yourself to suffering in a sweltering vehicle until it cools down. There are a few things you can do to make sure an automobile like the 2019 Dodge Challenger returns to a comfortable state quickly after it’s been parked.

The first tactic you should try is to park in a shaded area or a parking garage. Parking in a shaded or covered spot will prevent sunshine from warming up the air inside your vehicle. If you can’t find a parking spot that’s under some type of cover, you should use a sunshade to keep your automobile at least mildly cooler. In addition to preventing your car from getting too hot, a sunshade will prevent surfaces like your seat from getting uncomfortably hot to the touch.

To stay cool in any location this summer, you should make sure your air conditioning works properly. Through July 31, 2019, you can enjoy 10% off any necessary A/C work when you visit Kearny Mesa Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM and present the relevant coupon.

When you bring your car in for service, you’ll probably see vehicles with their windows slightly open. Leaving your windows open a smidge will keep your automobile cooler than it would be otherwise.
