While it’s not unusual to experience warm weather here in Jacksonville, FL throughout the year, things get particularly hot during summer. Is your vehicle well-equipped to handle such temperatures?

Summer weather can make it difficult to ensure your cabin is comfortable. When you park your 2019 Porsche 911 and leave it for some time, it won’t be long until it turns into, essentially, an oven. You can help your auto stay cool even when it’s parked by doing a few simple things.

Parking in a shaded or covered spot can help keep your vehicle cooler. You should also leave your windows cracked as well to allow for air circulation. To expel even more hot air, you can buy a solar-powered fan and leave it running while your vehicle is parked.

Using a sunshade is a good idea, too. A sunshade will prevent the sun’s rays from entering the cabin. It will also prevent surfaces like your seats and steering wheel from becoming hot to the touch, and if you have leather seating, from damaging the material. If you don’t want to get a sunshade, you can cover your seats and steering wheel with a beach towel to prevent them from getting hot.

Of course, we also recommend bringing your Porsche in for a checkup. Our certified technicians will inspect the battery’s charge, your tires’ condition and air pressure levels, and the coolant level. These are the three main components that are affected by heat, and we’ll do our part to ensure your vehicle is running in peak condition.
