So, you’ve made the right choice and are holding in your hands the keys of the most beautiful and lovely car, which will serve you for ages. Pls, accept congratulations from our dealership, and let us make your life on the wheels more comfortable and safer.
A car is a second home for many US drivers, as we spend much time behind the wheel. Those who drive to work and back can take only a driving license, a copy of car registration, and insurance papers to be equipped enough for regular commutes around Indianapolis. But if you want to be well-prepared for longer trips, grab our checklist of the most useful things to keep in your car.
Regardless of your car model and driving skills, these things will come in handy wherever you go.
Most drivers neglect the first aid kit and inspect it only once. However, it is important to pay attention to the expiration date of medications and store the first aid kit properly. The most convenient place is under the seat, to have it always at hand and prevent it from overheating, especially in the warm season. A first aid kit should contain:
This triangle will help you let other drivers notice that you are in trouble and prevent them from causing other harm if you can’t pull off your car to the side of the road.
A compressor is an indispensable attribute of the modern driver. If you need to pump up the wheel, you will be able to do everything yourself. Connect the auto compressor to the cigarette lighter, or the battery (through the terminals) and in a few minutes, the issue will be successfully resolved.
Tire service is not always nearby, and an accident usually happens unexpectedly. Take a spare tire with you, and don’t forget an auto jack. Changing a wheel requires some skills, but if you have all the tools with you, it will be easier to help yourself in case of emergency.
The minimal set of tools consists of:
In the old days, competent drivers always carried with them an alternator belt, an ignition coil, a switch, a set of candles, and high-voltage wires – parts that could fail without warning symptoms. And it took no more than a few minutes to replace them. If you have a modern car, this is most likely useless. Identifying a malfunction on the road without diagnostic equipment can be difficult. But something still worth putting in the car today.
These are several fuses of different ratings. A penny part can de-energize an important component of the electrical system, without which it will be difficult to get at least to the service on your own. Spare light bulbs will be also useful – those that have not yet given up their place to LEDs. Finally, a small canister of engine oil for topping up will not be an absurd vestige. The appetite of a modern motor can take the owner by surprise if he/she does not check the level of lubrication in time. Anyway, regular maintenance is the best way to make your commutes safer. Don’t postpone your visit – schedule an appointment at the Indy Auto Man service center right now!
The cold season has its requirements. Frost, temperature changes, and other factors affect the car and its movement. Driver’s winter equipment includes:
As a rule, you can find a lot of things in the glove compartment of a car, but here is what you will definitely need.
When traveling long distances, make sure you have the necessary artifacts. They can be in demand at the most unexpected moment.
Now you know what to add to your glove box and luggage compartment to guarantee safety and comfort during your commutes. And if you feel that you need a more spacious trunk or a more roomy interior to comfortably accommodate all the stuff, feel free to check our used car inventory.
