The heat in California is no joke, and your Mitsubishi model is at high risk of overheating. The following tips will help your Mitsubishi keep its cool in the blazing sun this summer.
Block UV Rays
To protect your skin from damaging UV rays, you reach for sunscreen. Although sunscreen won’t shield your Mitsubishi from UV rays, window shades can help block them. Window shades, an affordable and easy-to-use option, will help keep the temperature inside cooler while also protecting the dashboard.
When searching for a parking spot, seek out shade. Whether it’s in a parking garage or under a tree that provides ample coverage, a shady spot can help prevent your Mitsubishi from overheating.
Control The Airflow
Any second in a hot cabin is a second too long. To help purge the hot air quicker, forget the dashboard vents. Use the floor air vents instead.
Pay Attention To Maintenance
Regular maintenance including coolant flushes and battery checks are imperative to how efficiently your car can cool itself. Check your owner’s manual for your model’s recommended coolant flush (typically 50,000 miles). And, make sure your battery has full power. If it posts low voltage, it may be time for a replacement.
For a coolant flush, an AC check, and other maintenance, contact the service department at Bakersfield Mitsubishi in Bakersfield, California.
