Learn to Routinely Inspect Your Vehicle

While there’s no time stamp on the following, be sure to check the following every month or so to ensure that your car is in good condition:

  • Warning Lights – All should be in working order.
  • Tire Pressure – Keep a cheap tire air pressure gauge in your glove compartment.
  • Tire Tread – Put a penny in the groove of your tire (Lincoln’s head upside down). If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to change your tires.
  • Fluid Levels – Even if you don’t change your windshield wiper fluid, antifreeze, or coolant, be sure to check the levels and inspect for any leaks.

You’ll also want to stay up to date on maintenance by following your vehicle’s manual. Luckily, you can easily access just about any car manual online thanks to resources like Edmunds.
