Use Your Ears to Know if Cars Requires Service…

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

It’s impossible to be as safe a driver as possible if your vehicle requires maintenance. The best drivers are those that drive a vehicle that operates at the highest level otherwise you could find yourself placed in a dangerous situation through no fault of your actual driving. Mechanical problems with your car are sometimes unpredictable and unavoidable however there are many issues that can you reduce the chances of occurring with scheduled and regular check ups.

Most of us are aware that we need to get an oil change roughly every 3,000 miles but if that’s the extent of your vehicle upkeep, you’re leaving yourself open for a number of other issues that can present problems for you when you can least afford them. One component of your vehicle’s operation that you should pay special attention to is the tires. This includes both making sure they are properly inflated to the recommended pressure as well keeping an eye on the tread. Blowing a tire when going down a busy freeway at 65 mph can be extremely dangerous and damaging to your car as well as your personal safety.

In addition to keeping an eye on your car, you’ll also want to keep an ear on it. This means listening for any unusual noises emanating from it and then investigating the issue as soon as possible. Thinks like squeaking breaks or whiny belts are good indicators that your car needs service and there’s simply no good reason to put off that service.
