Thanks, NBC. A steering wheel cover is an inexpensive and effective tool as well.

Why does the car get hot? Seriously? Your car will NOT be cool. If it's 98℉ outside, that's the coolest it will be.

Get an exterior silver reflective snow shield on Amazon that tucks in the front doors and under the wipers; then the sun won't penetrate the front windshield. Get the least expensive "stick on" over the side window rain deflectors so you can open the side windows and release interior heat without rain getting in. Use exterior white graphic perforated vinyl for a large rear window; it works great on my Prius here in GA. I have also driven to AZ, NM, CA, TX and up to NY, and NJ and never been pulled over. Besides reducing interior heat on a sunny day, another driver in a truck or SUV doesn't bother me at night while tailgating with high beams.
