5 Top Car Care Tips to keep you Safe

Car Care Tips for Everyone

Regular maintenance can keep your car on the road for a long time. Preventative maintenance will save you money on future repairs and also keep you safer on the road.

Car Care Tips #1: Air Pressure

Your vehicle’s owner manual will recommend the ideal air pressure for your tires. Check air pressure when tires are cold, because heat causes air to expand and may lead to an inaccurate reading. Ideally, air pressure should be checked once a month

Car Care Tips #2: Oil Change

Your owner’s manual will provide you with an estimate regarding how often oil should be changed. But, a variety of factors may influence this recommendation. Your driving habits, weather conditions, road conditions and even the type of oil you use affect the state of your oil.  

Car Care Tips #3: The Brakes

The following distinctive sounds where your vehicle’s brakes are concerned are signs that your brakes need to be replaced:

  • Vibrating sounds
  • Squeaking
  • Grinding sounds

When your brakes respond slowly, this is another sign that the brakes need to be replaced. Ensure that your brake fluid is topped up regularly.

Car Care Tips #4: The Suspension System

If your car starts drifting or pulls away when turning you will have to have the suspension system checked out. Another clue of a worn suspension system is when your car dips when braking. A simple way to test whether your suspension needs fixing, is to push down on the hood of your car a few times. If your car rocks more than three times after you have released contact, your suspension needs to be looked at.

Car Care Tips #5: Emergency Kit

To stay on the safe side, put together an Emergency Kit for your car. The following will come in handy:

  • Jumper Cable
  • Spare tire
  • Flashlight
  • Wrench
  • Pliers
  • A jack
  • Screwdriver
  • Safety triangle

These are the basics that may be needed during a roadside emergency. Remember to move your car to the safest spot available and call for assistance if you can not fix the problem yourself.

Prevention is better than cure. Drive safely.
