Oh, or when you leave your car parked in an open-air carpark for like thirty minutes and come back to sit in a hot and stuffy oven of a car? If you haven't done so already, you should get the windows of your car fitted with solar film as the solution to your heat problems.
Besides keeping some of the heat out, solar film has numerous benefits like protecting you from the sun's harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, heat rash and (touch wood) skin cancer. It can help with your eyesight too! (believe it or not, you'll squint less when driving without the sun's glare in your eyes).
