Most car owners are happy to drive around and never think about what is going on inside the engine or the inner workings of the car until something goes wrong. But there are some basics every driver should know from the novice to the professional and these 5 simple tips could save you stress and money during the life span of your car and are pretty straightforward:
Learn the basics of maintenance. Make sure you regularly check the oil, brake fluid, antifreeze, and windshield wiper fluid. Learn how to jumpstart your car in case the battery ever dies. Take the time to learn how to replace a tyre; it’s a lot easier to learn how to do this in practice than attempting it first time on a dark wintry evening at the side of the road.
Find your car’s manual and read it. May seem boring and unnecessary but you would be surprised what you can learn especially as it is written about your specific vehicle make and model.
Keep your insurance details handy: Put this information in a designated place in your car, the last thing you want to be doing in an emergency is rummaging through your glove box to find the correct documentation.
Put an emergency kit in your trunk. Jumper cables, a torch, spare tyre, high-visibility vest, and a first aid kit are really important.
