Maintain Your Vehicle for Added Safety
Calling your insurance company is a major bummer, and so is renting a loaner while your car is in the repair shop -- but worst of all is the heart-palpitating shock of getting in a traffic collision. To protect yourself, you've learned to drive defensively. But car safety goes beyond your driving habits.
- To be truly safe on the road you will need to keep your car well maintained and in good working order. Here are some tips that you should follow to keep your car in optimal shape for safe driving:
- Pay attention to warning lights for engine problems, oil levels, and brake warnings. Bring your car in for service if any of these lights come on, as sudden breakdowns can increase your chances of an accident.
- Listen for unusual noises in your car that may be the sign of underlying problems in your vehicle. These noises could be a sign of a major problem that could pose a safety hazard.
- Bring your car in for routine maintenance at the Ghent Chevrolet Cadillac service department at least once a year. Check the owner's manual for your vehicle's specific recommended maintenance schedule.
