The old-fashioned way of doing things is cracking open the window before leaving your car. That can help a little bit. The other is to let the hot air out of the vehicle by opening the door and letting the cooler air go in. This way makes it a little easier to take the heat but it’s always going to be a little warm inside.


You can always cover your vehicle. There are whole car covers that you can put over your vehicle to make sure that the sunlight reflects off the cover and not heat up your vehicle’s interior. Covering the seats with blankets can help make them less hot, especially when you have leather seats.


There have been some advancements in car technology like solar powered fans and sunshades to help reflect the light from your vehicle. The fans can help you and your vehicle be less cold when you step inside. Many of these tools are inexpensive and can help you have a cool summer.
