Every car owner should take following road safety tips seriously as driving is a big responsibility. Make sure your vehicle is ready for its next trip.
What do you need to check before driving?
Headlights: As the days get shorter and we have to drive more in the evening, night time, it’s crucially important to ensure that your headlights are ready for the night driving. You should not be concerned about driving at night if all works properly.
How to check if they work fine? Just power the car up, turn the lights to dipped and get out of the car and check that both the headlights and the tail lights are working.
Lights: However, to check all your lights such as indicator lights, tail lights, and brake lights, you might want to contact a professional. At Pristine Automotive, we will check everything to ensure that you can hit the road without worries.
Battery: Consider checking your vehicle’s battery. You would not want to stop somewhere on the road because you have a battery problem and can’t get your vehicle started, right? Battery terminals should be secure and clean.
Fluids: Check your fluids as well. We recommend you to get your fluids such as engine oil, clutch fluid, radiator fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and more checked by a professional as it’s not an easy task. You might miss something.
Tyres: Are your tyres in a good shape? Are they ready for the hot/cold weather? Make sure they are ready for winter, summer, long trips or anything you want them to serve you for.
Luggage: Never overload your vehicle with a luggage. Every vehicle has a luggage weight limit and you should be aware of it before you put your stuff into the car. Overloading can be dangerous.
