Climate considerations

In Iowa City, summer temperatures can reach an average high of 84°F, with winter lows dipping to an average of 14°F. During hotter months, covered parking spaces are advisable to protect your vehicle from the intense sun and heat. This can prevent your car's paint from fading and the interior from overheating.

Winter presents different challenges, with freezing temperatures and snow. Open parking spaces can expose your vehicle to these conditions. For this, consider a car cover well-suited for snow and ice. It’s also wise to occasionally run your vehicle to keep the battery charged and ensure the fluids don’t freeze.

Choosing a parking space with a certain degree of natural shade or cover offers an advantage in such weather patterns. Remember, the type of space you pick will go a long way in preserving the condition of your vehicle in different seasons.
