It’s no surprise that this summer is really, really hot. And at Jake Sweeney Kia, your Florence, KY Kia dealers think we know a bit more about the discomfort of sitting in a hot car more than most people. So in an effort to reduce the car saunas we all hate this summer, we’re going to share our secrets to keep your car as cool as possible.

The simplest way to keep your car cool is to be aware of your surroundings. Is there some shade you can take advantage of to keep the heat off of your 2019 Kia Optima? Or can you use a parking structure somewhere? If the answer is no, then consider investing in sunshield for your windshield. Their design reflects the sun’s rays back out of your vehicle, reducing the interior temperature of the vehicle. Also, if your Kia vehicle comes with leather seating, you’ll protect that lovely interior from premature wear and fading. If you’re at home or somewhere you feel safe keeping a window slightly cracked, then a car window ventilator is a great option, as well. This keeps the air in your vehicle’s cabin moving so it have time to heat up and sit in your vehicle.

To make sure your vehicle’s air conditioning is working properly, it’s vital to make sure you’re taking your vehicle in for regular maintenance. Oil changes and brake pads are always important, but getting stuck in 90-degree weather with nothing but power windows is awful. So if your A/C needs a tuneup, our professional Kia Service experts can ensure that you’re running cool for the summer.
