How do I keep my car cool in the summer?

What are some ways I can keep my car cool in the summer? I have leather seats, and they always get so hot.

Nobody likes the feeling of burning hot car seats! But you can always use these tips to keep your car as cool as possible in the summer:
  • Park in the shade. Whether that means a parking garage, a covered spot, or just under a tree, the shade can keep your car cool as a cucumber.
  • Crack your windows to let out some of the hot, stale air and bring in a nice breeze.
  • Use a window visor to reflect some sun and keep the interior of your car cool. Or you could tint your windows to keep your car shady all the time!
  • Cover your seats with a seat cover—or even just a towel—before you leave your car.
  • Open the doors before you drive to air it all out and cool it down.
Remember, the summer heat can cause stress on certain parts of your car. To keep your car in top shape, try to leave it in cool spots and keep up with a regular maintenance schedule.
