Emergencies are unavoidable. Whether the weather, an accident, or any roadside emergency threw you into a predicament, it is always important to be prepared for them all. You won’t use these items every time you drive, but you’ll be glad you have them when you have a problem. Although items for repair will be very useful, you don’t want to forget the essentials like snacks and water.
The single most important factor in prolonging the life of your vehicle is simply maintaining it. By periodically checking for problems, you will significantly decrease your chances of any unforeseen issues that can arise. The following inexpensive checks are key to both safer and proper operation of your vehicle.
Proper brakes are essential to the safety of both yourself and other motorists. Kwik Kar recommends periodic inspection of your brake system and if needed, any maintenance performed to be sure the system is properly functioning. By doing so, the risk of brake problems and failures will be at a minimum.
Tire wear is normal on any vehicle, but excessive tire wear may be an indication that you need to have your tires replaced. Kwik Kar recommends checking your tire pressure periodically to prevent further problems. While checking tire pressure, be sure to check the wear of the tread and sidewalls of your tires. If they are balding, or have minimal amounts of tread left, replace the affected tires.
