LAS VEGAS - Sept. 8, 2020 - PRLog -- As Nevada's summer temperatures soar well into the 90s, you probably notice that your vehicle takes a little extra time to cool down after it's been sitting outside for a while. According to Live Science, after being parked in the sun on a 95-degree day for an hour, the inside of a car hits an average of 116 degrees. The dashboard gets even hotter at 157 degrees, the surface of the steering wheel reaches an average of 127 degrees and the seats are a searing 123 degrees on average.

Unfortunately, that heat isn't just uncomfortable; over time, it can take a big toll on your vehicle's interior, exterior and engine. Taking a few extra precautions during the summer can help keep your vehicle safer and more comfortable.

It's not out of the normal to change batteries every couple of years in these

Make Sure Your Car Cools Efficiently: Speaking of your air conditioner, if you notice that your car is taking a long time to cool down, then you may need to have your car's refrigerant charge level checked.

Check Fluid Levels: While it's always good to be mindful of your car's fluid levels, including its transmission fluid, motor oil, power steering fluid and brake fluid, it's especially important when it's hot outside.
