You must have purchased that dream car, and you must have learnt driving it too, but you may not know the basic things to keep it in good condition, and to get out of a problematic situation on the go. If you own a car, here are the 3 basic things that you must know:
1. How to change the tire: When going on a road trip,there are chances that your tire may go flat, and you may need to change the tire on the middle of a road. You must find out where the spare tire and jack are located in your car, and how to change it. The spare tire may be located inside your car’s trunk, inside its trunk panel, or underneath the vehicle. Make sure that the spare tire is properly inflated, so that it can come of use when you need it. The situation can be worse when you go to fix a flat tire, and find that the spare tire is flat as well.
2. The car’s maintenance schedule: To keep your car in optimum working condition, you should follow the maintenance schedule prescribed by the manufacturer. During these visits, the auto technicians will inspect your vehicle, fix any loose wires, and warn you of any upcoming problem in your vehicle. Follow advice of the technicians, and get an upcoming problem there and then. If you leave it unattended, it may cause further damage to your vehicle, and the car may betray you out of nowhere. If the problem persists, it may worsen and may result in costly repairs or replacements that you would never be happy to invest in.
