Pay attention to your tyres
Although tyres are the most important part of your car, their upkeep is commonly overlooked and neglected. Dealing with various road conditions on a regular basis in India, tyres are often the car component that experiences the most ‘wear and tear’.
In order to prolong your tyres lifespan, it is recommended to check your tyre pressure on a weekly basis and perform a tyre rotation every 6-months. In addition, cleaning your tyres on a regular basis will prevent dirt build-up and will also encourage problems to be spotted sooner rather than later as scratches or punctures are not covered in dirt.
Windscreen wipers and car lights
Prior to every monsoon season, wipers and lights should be thoroughly checked. If faulty, both of these car features could have fatal repercussions. If your windscreen wipers are hard on the windscreen or leaving marks, this could be a sign that they are not functioning how they should be. If you think that there may be an issue with your wipers or lights, make sure to visit a trusted mechanic as soon as possible.
