Dang, it is HOT in that car without the AC. I think I may dip into the e-fund for this. I'm currently above the minimum that makes me lose sleep, and would still be after the repair. I had the same problem with my first car. I lived in the Mojave Desert north of Palm Springs and drove a black car; it was not fun but I'm here to tell about it. ;-)Some tips:Try leaving the windows open and using a windshield sunshade. If you have a sunroof, leave that open just a smidge and drive with it cracked; it will help to suck the hot air out of the car.Lay a towel over the driver's seat and the steering wheel (and the armrest if you use it); it will absorb most of the heat. Remove it before you sit down! :-)Wet a cloth and lay it over the back of your neck while you drive; it will help to keep you cool.Style your hair so that the wind does not destroy it. Ponytails, braids, buns, hairbows are all great; loose, flowing, long hair - not so much.Park in the shade or a parking garage when possible. Park so that the rear of your car will be facing the sun in the time before you drive. It sounds weird but if you have a choice, it will keep your seat cooler and be initially more comfortable for you.Minxie
