Hot, Hot, Hot!!

We here in Phoenix are used to hot!  We know what to do to protect ourselves from extreme heat.  Here are a few tips to protect your car, too!

Interior –

  • Try to park in a shady spot.  I know it isn’t always possible but if you can, do so.  
  • Today there are windshield sun protectors that can help when you can’t find a convenient shade tree!
  • Keep your vehicle clean on the inside as well and use a conditioner if you have leather seats and don’t forget the dashboard. It gets a lot of damaging sunrays!

Mechanical –

  • In the hot summer’s heat, it isn’t unusual to see a car on the side of the road with steam pouring out from under the hood!  No one needs to go through this! The technicians at Fairway Auto Repair can make sure your vehicle’s cooling system is up to the challenge of extreme heat.  We check your coolant, belts and hoses to make sure all is well under the hood of your car!
  • Batteries take a beating in the heat.  Batteries in Phoenix need to be checked often as the use of air conditioning also shortens their life span.  It is a quick check and we keep your car ready to go when you are!
  • We need to keep hydrated in this heat and so does your car.  We can make sure your vehicle’s fluids are topped off and exchanged when necessary! 
  • If your air conditioning isn’t helping you keep cool, we can help there too!  Whatever your vehicle needs, Fairway Auto Repair is here!

Exterior –

  • A clean car is a great look and it protects your vehicle … add wax and you protect it even more!
