The summer is probably the hardest time of year for vehicles. That is why we have spoken on more than one occasion of the most important care for this season. Now we will also give some keys to protect the car from the sun because it is precisely in summer when it has more repercussions and when it can cause more damage.

Outdoor Protection

It is probably too obvious, but it is worth remembering. The best way to avoid the sun is to hide from it directly or to get Umbrella for car [ร่มกางให้รถ which is the term in Thai]. Whenever possible, it is advisable to park in the shade, especially if the car is going to be parked for a long time and during the central hours of the day. It is important to calculate the movement of the sun, because it may be that at the time of parking the car is protected but that with the hours it is exposed.

When it is not possible to park in the shade or a covered parking lot, there are other possibilities. If the car is going to be stopped for several days and we are very worried about maintaining its exterior state, you can opt for a Car umbrella [ร่มกางรถยนต์ราคา which is the term in Thai]. Some generics adapt quite well and are not very expensive. In this sense, you can also choose to vininate the body (there are transparent sheets that only protect without changing the original color), which will be more effective but also more expensive.

Interior Protection

If the car has been parked in the sun, we can be sure that the indoor temperature will be very high on our return. The vehicle acts like an oven and does not let heat escape, so it is better to try to enter directly. Although it may not seem so, the function of the lens hood is key, since most of the sun’s rays reach through the windshield, which is the largest moon and is also slightly inclined.


Washing the car regularly in summer also helps a lot. Although it seems silly, this way, you can “cool” the body of the vehicle, and high temperatures will affect to a lesser extent. It is advisable to avoid the central hours of the day for washing, because with the exposure of the sun and very hot the water will evaporate faster and could even be counterproductive.
