All across the country, we're experiencing higher than average temperatures for the season. Summer is only halfway through, but we're experiencing temperatures as if it were mid-August. In Skokie, Infiniti drivers might be wondering how they can protect their luxury vehicles from the blistering heat. Here are a couple ways:
First off, if you're going to be parked outside for an extended period of time, make sure to put up a reflective sun shade on your windshield. This will protect your car's interior from oppressive heat and sun damage. Another way to keep your car's interior protected is to further tint your windows or install a screen on them to block out the sun's harsh UV rays.
You'll also want to dive under the hood and check on your battery. Hot weather can cause excessive fluid evaporation. This can deplete the charge and reduce the battery's life. Replacing it isn't cheap, but a little maintenance goes a long way to keeping it healthy. So, fill up your battery with distilled water when needed.
Also, don't forget to top off your car's coolant tank when needed. Be careful when opening the radiator cap. Wait at least an hour after driving for the car to cool down. Don't forget about your tires either. The hot air can distort the pressure. Check the tire pressure when it's cool to make sure your tires at appropriately full.
Lastly, don't forget regular maintenance at your local Infiniti dealer, like Fields Infiniti of Glencoe. Regular check ups make sure small problems down turn into big, costly ones.
