Summer’s just not letting up, is it? With the warm temps come the sunshine we love, but also the discomfort of getting into a hot car. That goes double if you have an A/C system not working to its fullest. So today, O’Brien Hyundai of Normal is helping our central Illinois customers and everyone else keep cool with these little tips for keeping yourself, and your vehicle, cool.

First off, investing in a sun shield is a really good move. This fits inside the windshield of your 2019 Hyundai Elantra, or any other vehicle you own, and reflects the sunlight that would normally superheat the interior. Get one for the rear windshield if you really want to feel a difference. It also protects leather upholstery, as well, since ultraviolet rays can weaken and fade leather if left out for too long. Getting a car window ventilator fan is a good step as well – keeping the window cracked is common practice for a lot of us, but what if we added a fan to the mix that can move hot air out and suck cooler air in? Not a bad idea!

But if you want to be proactive about it, you deserve to take your pre-owned or new Hyundai model into our Normal, IL Hyundai service center for scheduled maintenance. Our experts can make sure your vehicle’s air conditioner (and the rest of its cooling system) are in good working order, so you don’t need to worry about it breaking down on you when you need it the most. Keep cool out there!
