The heat and humidity that St. Louis is infamous for, is back, and with a vengeance. If you think it seems like it’s getting hotter every summer, you’d be correct. According to NOAA, last summer was the fourth hottest summer in the US in 124 years! 2019 is already heating up, and there’s little reason to think it won’t be as hot as last summer.
There’s nothing worse than sitting in a hot car with an inefficient or failing air conditioner, stuck in traffic, during a hellish commute on Highway 40, just running errands, or driving around the Lou on the weekend.
No matter your destination, traveling and arriving in a hot car is one way to get into a bad mood fast. The boiling, scorching St. Louis heat can drain your strength, rob you of your comfort, and even drain your wallet by increasing fuel consumption and reducing overall auto efficiency.
Luckily, St. Louis drivers have Cyclone Car Care, your trusted St. Louis auto AC experts. Chill out with an efficient, fully-charged, fully-functional, AC system blasting refreshing cold air and helping you keep your own cool.

Winter weather affects your car in lots of costly and frustrating ways. Obviously, cold temperatures make it more difficult to start your car. Your car’s battery can be negatively impacted by the cold weather and the stress it places on that battery to fire up each time you start your car. There’s another issue that cold weather can cause, and it doesn’t get as much thought or attention as it should–your tire pressure.
Temperature changes–heat and cold–cause changes to the tire pressure for your car’s tires. Hot weather causes your tires to expand. In fact, for every 10 degrees Fahrenheit increase in temperature, your car’s tires to increase by 1-2 pounds of pressure. In the winter, it’s the opposite. In the winter, cold temperatures cause your tires to lose PSI. In the winter, you can expect your tires to lose one PSI per a 10-degree drop in temperature. In St. Louis, that drop can be pretty steep.
Make sure you check your tires’ PSI regularly, especially when there’s a big drop or increase in temperatures. Driving on underinflated or overinflated tires not only reduces tread life, but it also affects your safety. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and check for treadwear. Drive safely.
Car stereos and sound systems have come a long way. Today’s car stereos do a lot more than just pick up AM or FM radio stations, they also now work with streaming services, iTunes, Spotify, and other devices including BlueTooth. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that installing a new car stereo can be a challenge even for DIY folks that enjoy tinkering. Removing the old unit can be a laborious task fraught with frustration and the possibility of damaging your dash, wiring and auto’s interior. Moreover, if you purchase a new, feature-filled car stereo, the waiting list for installation at major retailers like Best Buy, is currently as much as six to eight weeks! If you’re eager to start enjoying your great new car audio system and all its amazing features, and not wait for months to get it professionally installed, Cyclone Car Care, your trusted St. Louis auto repair specialists, can help.
Because each system and project is different, we offer free, accurate estimates and ensure that you can start enjoying your new car audio system this week, not two months from now.
Driving without music, news or talk radio makes for a boring commute or trip. Enjoy all the new brand offerings from car audio companies like Kenwood, Sony, Pioneer, Alpine, JVC, and many more.

Missouri received a C- for the condition of our roads and bridges. https://www.infrastructurereportcard.org/state-item/missouri/
Missouri’s roughly 34,000-mile highway network, the 7th largest in the country, plays a critical role in the state’s economic growth, traveler efficiency, and the quality of life of its citizens. In recent years, MoDOT has been able to fund and deliver roadway pavement maintenance improvements, significantly improving road surface conditions throughout the state’s transportation system. However, the state motor fuel tax has not increased since 1996, and Missouri ranks 4th lowest in state gas tax and 47th overall in revenue per mile. Due to inflation and rising construction costs, the 17-cent tax now equates to eight cents in purchasing power. Missouri only spends 43% of the national average on operations and maintenance per state-controlled mile. Without action in the state legislature, funding constraints are anticipated to continue, leaving Missouri’s ability to sustainably fund future roadway maintenance and improvement projects in jeopardy. Meanwhile, residents spend $604 annually per motorist in extra vehicle repairs and operating costs, compared with $533 per driver nationwide. A long-term revenue stream for transportation must be identified in order to improve Missouri’s economic competitiveness and keep residents safe.
