MOTORING NEWS - There are things that you can do to ensure a smooth driving experience, some being your vehicle checks at least every six months.
We take a look at some of the things that you can check every after six months.
Have a look at your brakes, tyres and suspension
Healthy brake pads ensure a smooth driving experience. Get your brake pads inspected and if need be, get them replaced soonest.
Your tyres are the most important part of a vehicle as they are the only part of the vehicle that comes into contact with the road surface. It’s a good thing to check their tread depth, pressure and wear.
The suspension is made up of different components. Look out for leaks on shocks as well as damaged rubbers and springs.
Check your vehicle fluids and filters
Make sure you check your engine oil if it is still in a good condition as well as its level. The brake fluid and coolant levels should be at the required level between the high and low mark.
Wiper blades and lights
Inspect the smoothness of the wiper blades and if you detect an unevenness, it is a sign that the blades need to be replaced.
Also, get the headlights, indicators and brake lights checked.
