Everyone knows that you can use your car’s floor mats to get unstuck in icy conditions, or that you should park in the shade in hot weather. However, there are lots of less well-known car hacks that can turn you from a novice to a pro car owner. Here are five of the best car hacks that we think you should know.
Never Forget Where You’re Parked
Do you have a habit of parking your car somewhere, only to realize later that you have no idea where you left it? Never lose your car again by dropping a pin on your smartphone’s map when you park. Then when you need to return to your car later, you can pull up directions to the pin you placed. If your built-in map app doesn’t let you drop a pin, you can download an app like iParkedHere or Park Me Right to help you keep track of where you’re parked.
