How to Protect Your Jeep® SUV from UV Rays

July 7th, 2019 by

Though the heat of summer is excellent for fun adventures like kayaking or swimming, it can also wreak havoc on your vehicle. That’s why our dealers at Woodhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM in Blair recommend you follow these easy steps to protect your Jeep SUV from the sun’s rays.

Minimize Sun Exposure

When left in the sun, your car turns into a greenhouse. Your windows naturally pull sunlight into your Jeep SUV, warming the interior and fading your carpet and upholstery. The best way to block the sun from entering your vehicle is by using a parking garage or another covered structure. If you don’t have access to a covered garage, try finding a shady area for your vehicle.

Reflect Sunlight with a Sunshade

Many drivers don’t have access to a parking garage, forcing them to leave their cars in the sun for most of the day. You can always avoid sun damage to your vehicle by using a sunshade, which reflects sunlight away from your windshield. As a bonus, sunshades fold up for convenient storage and can be easily transported anywhere.

Crack Your Windows

Even if your car is protected from the sun, the lack of air circulation still makes the inside hot and stuffy, especially inside big SUVs like the new 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Leaving your windows cracked during the day will help eliminate some of the hot air. To make your car even less of a furnace, you can even crack open your passenger side window and open and close your driver’s side door repeatedly, “fanning” out most of the hot air.
