, here are more ways to keep your car safe against heat:

Other risks that can damage your car
Not only does heat damage your vehicle, but water can as well. Most of South Florida has a tropical climate with frequent rains throughout the summer months and the risk of hurricanes.
Strong winds can cause flying debris, fallen tree limbs, and many more hazards. Heavy rain and floods can damage your braking system.
The roads in Florida are often wet, which can lead to hydroplaning. This is especially dangerous if you have worn-out tires. The humidity paired with the excessive moisture can cause rust and mold.
If you notice any strange sounds or issues with your vehicle, it’s important to get it checked by a mechanic. If you live in a state with harsh weather conditions, you’ll want to have adequate car insurance to keep you protected in case of any accidents.
