What should you check yourself before leaving?
Oil Level Checking and topping up the oil level is an absolute minimum that you need to do before going on a long trip. It does not matter whether the car is brand new or slightly older – the oil level must always be correct.
By the way, it is worth taking a look at the levels of other operating fluids – washer fluid, brake fluid, and cooling fluid.
Necessary equipment The warning triangle and the fire extinguisher are mandatory equipment for a car in Poland. It is also always worth equipping the car with a decent first aid kit, reflective vests, a towing rope, and jumper cables.
Travel comfort Check wipers and windows. Make sure the feathers are not chipped and cracked. If so, the wipers must be replaced. Dirty windshields or headlights reduce the comfort and safety of travel – do you want to wash your car? We invite you to one of our car washes!
Lighting Check the efficiency of the headlamps and, if necessary, replace the bulbs with stronger ones. It is also necessary to correctly set the lights so as not to dazzle other traffic users.
Ventilation Contamination of the ventilation ducts reduces their patency and results in inefficient operation of air vents and air conditioning. It is a good idea to vacuum the sewers and outlets inside the car, clean and dry the pollen filters. It is also worth thinking about cleaning the air conditioning system.
