Pre-Drive Checklists Help Ensure Proper Vehicle Safety

A simple inspection before you hit the road in your car can make you safer behind the wheel and help prevent serious car trouble. Watch this video to find out how to inspect your car for proper safety.

When performing a pre-trip inspection, the first step you should take is to examine the tires and check their inflation level. If the tires are improperly inflated or have any visible scrapes or bulges, the ride quality and tire life will suffer and the chances of blowout will increase. Check the car’s fluid levels as well. If any of your fluids are low or dirty, they should be replaced as soon as possible. For more inspection tips, watch this video from Car and Driver.
