Car Safety Checks

I’m starting this 2018 with a goal to look after myself and achieve the New Years resolutions that I have set myself. If you read my post you will these are solely based on health and wellbeing. Ways that I can improve what I ingest which ultimately makes a great impact on my inner and outer health. I have also been thinking of other ways I can implement this. I’m very much a lover of all things luxurious, but why spend so much money on something if we don’t look after it. Last year I got my first new car straight from the showroom. This year I’m making it my mission to really look after my belongings and this includes the car. Our cars need lots of TLC as well to keep them tip top and in full working order just like our bodies do. What better way to start implementing this with a good car safety checks which we can do at home ourselves.

It’s very easy to check the levels of oil and water in your car yourself. Each reservoir is clearly marked with high and low levels. Its always best checking these when the car is cold and on a flat service as to not alter the readings.

 

Brakes

You can check your breaks easily by looking at the brake pad itself through the car wheel spokes. The outside of the pad will be pressed against the rotor. A normal pad shouldn’t be less than 1/4 inch in size. Brakes should also never feel spongy or slack. If your ever in doubt its best to get them checked.

 

Obviously, nobody wants to break down so by following these easy steps we all can try and be on top of things and reduce the risk.
