Enjoy a break from the daily task of driving and sit back and relax while enjoying a commute with a friend. Make your daily commute shorter by enjoying the less congested HOV (high-occupancy vehicles) lanes and save money on gas!

  • Keep the Interior of Your Car Cooler!
  • Walk those few extra steps so that you can park under that tree. Park so that the sun will be shining on your rear window or passenger side for most of the time that it will be parked.
  • Make Sure That You Service Your Vehicle

In hot dry climates, your car special needs. Be sure to have frequent oil changes and belt checks. Batteries die fast. Make sure fluids are full.

Items You Should Have in Your Car:

  • Filled, spare tire
  • First aid kit
  • Extra water, for drinking and/or for the car.
  • A small towel or handkerchief. If you don’t have a windshield sunshade, put the towel on your seat before you leave the car so you can get in and sit down when you return.
  • Snacks
  • Cell phone and a charger so you can call if you get lost or get into trouble.

Stay Safe and Enjoy the Summer! Contact MyGuy for any of your automotive needs.
