How to Beat the Summer Heat

When it starts to get hot outside, it starts to get hot in your car, too! Here are some ways to beat the summer heat and cool down your car.

Air Ventilation

Letting a little air into your car might help keep it cool when it’s parked. If you have a sun roof, open it a bit or leave your windows cracked. Just be careful of the rain!

Beat the Summer HeatSun Shades

Use sun shades on your windshield to stop sun from heating up your car. Sun shades are especially helpful when you can’t find shade on your own.

Find Shade

When you can find shade, use it! And if you can’t find enough shade to cover your entire vehicle, make sure you at least cover your driver’s seat with the shade so the heated-up steering wheel won’t burn your hands.

Use Remote Start

Many cars (including Nissans!) have remote start key fobs with A/C. Use it to your advantage by starting your car and A/C before you get in so it’ll already be cooled down by the time you get to it.

Best Summer Cars from Nissan

Best summer carsNissan may be best known for its SUVs, but it has an impressive lineup of sports cars and convertibles that are perfect for summertime. Nissan of Clinton’s home in North Carolina is blistering in summer, so we understand the need for great summer cars.

First is the aptly named 370Z Roadster, which is both a sleek sports car and a convertible, the only car combining the best of both worlds. With 332 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, the Roadster is the perfect car for racing down the freeway with the wind in your face.

Nissan’s other two sports cars, the 370Z Coupe and the GT-R, are still great summer cars, despite their lack of convertible top. Nothing beats a cool, superfast car, and Nissan’s sports line definitely qualifies.

Finally, we have, the Murano Crosscabriolet. Nissan’s only four-door convertible, the Crosscabriolet is kind of the family-friendly version of the Roadster. It doesn’t pack the horsepower of the sports cars, of course, but that’s all the better when you’ve got a car seat or an impressionable 15-year-old in the backseat.

The best part: these cars come with advanced braking systems and high-quality tires, so they transition well into the colder months.
