How Can I Keep My Volkswagen Model’s Steering Wheel Cool in the Summer?
Keeping a Steering Wheel Cool on a Hot Summer Day
The winter season now feels like a distant memory and we are loving the sun and warm weather. While we love the weather, those occasional heat waves can be a little unbearable. Unfortunately, we do have to continue on with life as best as we can and that may include driving. If your Volkswagen has been sitting out in the heat, you know that it feels like an oven when you get back in it – and the steering wheel is so hot that it hurts to even touch it! Here are some ways to help keep that steering wheel a little cooler to the touch.
One of the best things that you can do is actually very simple and cheap. All you have to do is take a thick towel and cover your steering wheel once you reach your destination and park your Volkswagen.
We all know that leather can get extremely hot in the summer, and some Volkswagen models are outfitted with leather-covered steering wheels. To help keep yours cool, check out our selection of Volkswagen accessories for cloth steering wheel covers. Online retailers like Amazon Smile also have a great selection of covers that do not absorb the heat.
Finally, consider investing in a windshield cover (a sheet of cardboard will even work). It will prevent the extra sunlight (which can really jack up the interior temperature) from entering your Volkswagen model’s cabin. It will keep your steering wheel and whole cabin cooler – and it will prevent the interior materials from fading!
So what do you do when your steering wheel is hot? Do you wait until the A/C kicks in? Or do you put on a pair of garden/work gloves or oven mitts? Let us know in our comments section below!
