Before you go car shopping
Dress for the summer weather
Dressing appropriately is one of the most important things you can do to have an enjoyable practice at our dealership. The summer heat is not to be taken lightly, even when you’re just coming in for summer auto service. Make sure that you leave the dark, bulky and heavy clothing at home! You want to wear clothing that’s comfortable, light colored and lightweight so you attract less heat and have more ventilation. Wearing a hat with a brim to keep the sun off and neck is also a good thing to wear when you’re car shopping near Charlotte.
Bring your sunglasses
The sun can be intense during the summer and it can affect your eyes. Wearing sunglasses on our lot during a bright summer day will help you avoid eye sensitivity while you’re car shopping near Charlotte. Sunglasses are also great to have when you take a test drive! You wouldn’t want an annoying sun glare to hamper the first driving experience in your dream car, would you?
Put on plenty of sunscreen
UV rays are more intense during the N Charlotte summer, so make sure to lather on the SPF before your car shopping. You can get a sun burn in as little as 10 minutes of sun exposure! And even if you know what new Toyota or used car you want before you even get to our dealership, you are still getting sun exposure through the vehicle’s window during the test drive.
Be prepared for the rain
Even though summer is known for its heat, rain is also a possibility.
