We all know Santa is well loved and quite amazing, but did you know he is also really clever when it comes to making sure he and Mrs Claus are safe on the road, by having their car serviced at Mudgee Service & Repair Centre before their summer holidays!
Make sure you do the same.

With another warm week approaching and it's not even summer yet, we thought we'd share some early summer car cooling tips.
What's your favourite tip or have you got one to add?
1. Use a sunshade or window visor. This is a tried-and-true method of keeping your car cool. And to keep it even cooler for long periods by putting a sunshade in your rear window as well.
2. Use a dash cover. A fabric or upholstered dash covers can help keep your car’s interior more comfortable. They also protect sensitive vinyl from sun damage that can cause cracking and fading.
3. Cover your steering wheel with a towel. Even if you use a sunshade, it’s a good idea to cover your steering wheel with a small towel. This will help to keep the contact temperature of your steering wheel down.
4. Park in a shady area. If you’re going to be somewhere for an extended period of time, it’s worth a slightly longer walk in order to park in the shade.
5. Although this won't keep your car cool, it may save you some heartache. Remember to keep your important possessions out of the sun or heat of a parked car in summer. Phones, tablets, laptops, CDs or even makeup and food can be kept in eskies, but if you are having to park your car in the heat of the day - perhaps take these items with you or leave them at home.
6. Park in a garage or under shelter when possible. Whenever possible, park in a garage. Your car will be out of direct sunlight and will have the benefit of near-constant shade. Even a warm garage beats being parked in the sun all day.
7. Keep windows slightly cracked. It’s not a good idea to leave your windows all the way open ever, but even a small crack will promote ventilation and help to keep your car cool. (Make sure there is no rain on the horizon.
8. Purchase a solar-powered fan. A fawn and slightly cracked windows work to expel hot air from your car by creating constant air circulation.
9. Use seat covers or throw towels or blankets over your seats. Vinyl or leather seats can be downright painful when exposed to sunlight and high temperatures.
10. Crank up your air con and leave your car doors open for a few minutes before you get into your car. This will help the hot air exit and the cool air cool down the car. ...
