Safety checks before your trip

Safety checks before your trip

It is important to adequately prepare key areas of your vehicle before leaving for a driving trip. Here are a few simple pre road-trip checks that one must keep in mind:

● Check the air pressure:  People often neglect checking the air pressure of the tires. Low air pressure may lead to a blowout from extra friction on highways and can decrease fuel economy too. You must check the pressure marked on the driver’s side door to know the adequate tire pressure. It is important to check the pressure of all four tires and also be sure to keep a spare tire with its air pressure up-to-date.

● Check the fluids in your car: You must safeguard your car from problems such as mechanical damage, over-heating or even a breakdown. Check the fluids like coolant and engine oil in your car on a regular basis to prevent such problems. If necessary, change the engine oil if the due date is approaching. Use high-quality oils to protect the life of your engine and to remove the additional stress on your motor.

●The GPS: The GPS in your car should work properly to avoid losing your way. This Global Positioning System has to capability to show and guide you to get to any destination in your mind.

●Check if the lights and signals are functional: It is necessary to sit in the car, turn on each light and see if it is working. You must also replace bulbs and fuse if it needs to be changed to avoid accident and problems while driving.

● Battery: Make sure to check the battery of your car before your trip. You can do this visually by looking for leaks, cracks or any other damage in the battery. If the battery is more than four years old, you must try and replace it.

●Brakes: You must ensure that the car brakes are working efficiently. Rusted brakes can cause a lot of difficulties for you. Also keep a check on the brake pads and rotors and replace them if they need to be changed.

●Emergency equipment: Keep spare tires, an up-to-date map, flares, medical kits, fire extinguisher, flash lights and other emergency tools in the car. You never know what and when can problem arise! So be well-equipped.

● Take a test-drive: You should test-drive your car thoroughly to check if there are any signs of trouble. If you hear unusual noises or feel the shakes in the gauges, take the car to your trusted professional service centre for a complete diagnosis of your car.

You can now follow these simple checks to make your trip a hassle free-experience.
