Let’s Help You by Chalking Down a Few Points You Need to Look into Before Driving Off and Having a Hassle-Free Outing.
- Flat Tyres
If you find that the tyres of your car run flat very often, it’s an indication that you are having perforated tyres which need to be attended to at your earliest.
A quick and timely repair or replacement of your tyres would be better than worsening the situation by your delay in attending to the damaged tyres.
- Defective Lights
Always make sure the headlights of your car, indicators, hazard warning lights, and brake lights are in good condition and functioning well. The lights of your car are a very important feature to ensure the safety of other pedestrians and drivers along the road.
If you do decide to venture out when the lights of your car are malfunctioning, you will be in danger yourself, as the police will be hailing you down to hand you a ticket for faulty lights.
- Broken Windscreen
If you do notice that your vehicle has a cracked windscreen, it would be wise to not drive it. Small chips can turn into big cracks which may not be repairable, causing more expenditure.

- Emitting Smoke
There is a problem if you notice unusual smoke coming from under the hood or from the tailpipe of your car. This indicates the engine of your car is faulty. A black coloured smoke indicated that the engine is using excessive gas. White smoke indicates that your engine is getting overheated.
