i live in dallas and we hit 99 degrees a few days ago, so its probably going to be a VERY hot summer here, i havent ever had a car i cared this much about before so does anyone have any tips on what i should do to not let the 100 plus degree temps damage anything?

is there anything i should do extra?

tint is a great start. a 180 degree thermostat is another great idea. i would also recommend a good sunshade for the front window when parked

Hi from Houston. As far as the AC goes, try leaving it on recirculate so it is not trying to cool outside air. Works for me.

Summers are hot and humid in the Northern Virginia/Washington DC area, too. I find if I just set the temp control to Auto and 70 degrees and open the window for a couple minutes to blow out the super hot air, that it cools off just fine in no time. Nothing out of the ordinary needed.

I agree with RobinVA... I'm in NOVA too, and beyond deep tint and opening the windows on startup, there's no escaping the heat.

As a matter of fact... we just hit 70 degrees today.

:biggrin:
