You don’t want to stay at home when the weather warms up. Summer is a perfect time to get in your vehicle and hit the road, whether just around town or on vacation. Here are five summertime car accessories you need to make your ride more enjoyable.
A Seat Cover for Heat
Since you will be sitting while traveling, you need a good seat cover. Not only will you be more comfortable, but depending on the material, you won’t burn yourself when you sit on it, and you won’t stick to the seat when getting up. In addition to protection from a hot car, seat covers protect your upholstery and stay put due to straps or backing to hold them in place. Seat covers are available for bench and bucket seats, armrests and headrests.
Wiper Blades for Summer Storms
Summer is the perfect time to ensure your wipers are in working order. Heavy downpours can make it difficult to see out your windshield, but having a good set of wipers will remove the water from your window and improve visibility. When investigating whether you need to replace your wiper blades, look for broken or cracked rubber. If you see streaks or a film on your windshield while the wipers are on, that is also a sign that you should replace them.
Windshield Screen for the Sun
It is crucial to protect your vehicle’s interior from damaging UV rays and the heat from the sun. A screen for your windshield is a great way to do that. The shades are easy to use and store when not in use. Just place one on your dashboard while your car is parked, and you will return to a cooler vehicle. There are many options, such as custom, heavy-duty sunshades or universal screens that will work in any car. Depending on your design, you can make a fashion statement or show support for your favorite sports team or television character.
Bug Deflector for Summer Pests
The more you drive, the more bugs end up on your windshield. Not only does it make your vehicle look like you haven’t washed it for months, but it is difficult to see out a window full of stuck-on insects. Sometimes you can’t even get them all off with just your windshield wipers. A bug deflector is a perfect accessory. The deflector shields your hood and windshield from pests and can deflect road debris and rocks from chipping your paint or windshield.
First Aid Kit for Emergencies
An emergency first aid kit is a must-have accessory in your vehicle all year long, but during the summer, you are more active and might get more scrapes and burns. Every situation is different, but here are a few things you should include in an automobile first aid kit.
- Antiseptic wipes
- Antibiotic ointment
- Aloe vera
In addition to these five car accessories, there are many others that will make your summer spectacular. Check out this gift guide for more options.
