Spring weather can get hectic in Oklahoma. Hard storms and other types of severe weather can do major damage to your Toyota. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to prevent it. This is how to weatherproof your car.
Shelter Your Car
The best way to protect your car is to store it in a sheltered area like a garage. This provides safety from most damage caused by hail, rain, high winds, and even sunlight. If a garage is not an option, use a fitted car cover and park your car against the side of a building where it can get some protection.
Seal All Openings
The exterior of your car can withstand heavy rainfall, but if that rain gets to the interior, it can wreak havoc on the upholstery and electrical systems. Make sure all windows, doors, and sunroofs are sealed tight. Be sure to check the rubber seals on all openings.
Track Weather Conditions
Finding shelter is only useful if you can get there before a storm damages your car. Stay tuned to your local news and to the National Weather Service to avoid getting surprised by nasty weather. This way, you can be prepared when it arrives.
After a major storm, visit Northcutt Toyota in Enid, Oklahoma, for an inspection. It can be useful to do so before a storm as well, and take photos, in case you expect the need to document any damage for your insurance company.
