Parking in the Shade

2019 Nissan Altima | James Ceranti Nissan | Greenville, MS

Summer is right around the corner and things are already heating up. This is a friendly reminder that it is always best to find a parking spot out of that direct summer sunlight and for more reasons than you might think.

Less Burns – Just about everyone has a memory of scalding themselves on a hot seatbelt or plopping down on someone’s nice leather upholstery in shorts only to yelp and hop out of their seat. Save yourself some discomfort and find a shady spot to stop.

Save your Paint – Ultraviolet light from the sun does constant damage to paint. Vehicles can protect against this with waxes and treatments, but eventually the sun always wins. Extend your paint job’s beauty by keeping it out of direct sun when possible. It may seem extreme, but if your leave your vehicle parked the sun for long stretches and have no other choice, an opaque cover does a lot of work in preserving your paint finish.

Protect your Plastic – Vehicle interiors can get seriously hot in the sun and even though the plastics that make up the interior consoles are resistant to heat, repeated exposure over time will prevail. Reflective window inserts can do a lot to protect interior surfaces when shade isn’t possible, but they can’t help the exterior.
