Hot Car - Suggestions to Cool it Down

We all love the sunshine but getting into that HOT car isn't always so wonderful even when you have remote start it will take the breathe out of you when the temperatures are soaring.  Makes you want to pack your lunch instead of meeting friends for lunch!  We decided that you should meet friends for lunch!   So we got together and found some quick ideas for you.  It isn't much but enjoy the sunshine on us here at City Auto Repair here in Gainesville!  Call it our fun day fact! 

Easiest Fix By Far......Sunshade.  Buy one for the front window and they how have them available for the sides and back windows!  It reflects the sun's rays away from the interior of your car or truck keeping the heat level down and bonus feature is that it will help keep your interior looking great longer so you will stay in love with your car or truck longer "plus" it is easy to pack away in seconds out of sight!
