Yes you did read that right, at this time of year we are all talking about New Year Resolutions. Whether it is losing weight, giving up smoking, saving more, start keep fit or one of the many other resolutions we all make each year. But how about New Year resolutions for your car.
We all use our cars every day to drive the kids to school, going to and from work, shopping, visiting friends and family. We know about checking to make sure we have enough petrol to get us to our destinations. But hands up those of us who do not worry about anything else. Are the first to go into a panic when something goes wrong.
So if you break all your other New Year Resolutions. Make sure this is one you do not break. I have listed below a few things to help you keep your car in shape.
Always make sure your tyres are safe by checking the tread. Also that they have the correct air pressure. If you are unsure you can pop into a local garage to have your tyres checked. Not only does this make the performance of your cr better, it also important for stopping when you brake. Once a month just check the pressure of your tyres to make sure they are correct. This will also keep your tyres in better condition. You should also check the tyre tread as it is illegal to drive with worn tyres and could also affect your car on braking.
I am lucky with my car as it will ping up and tell me there is a malfunction. But regularly check your lights remembering the headlights, brake lights and indicators. How many accidents could be prevented if brakes and indicators work properly so you can let other traffic and pedestrians know your intentions.
This should go without saying but always make sure your brakes are in good working order, you usually have an idea that they need replacing when you hear a squealing sound when you press the brake pedal or the brake pedal is hard. You can keep your family safe & get your car’s brakes checked regularly at Iverson Tyres London Branch. Neglecting your brakes can cause accidents, they are one of the points on a MOT but something you should be aware of daily.

Oil and Water
One thing we should always do regularly is check your oil and water, this is something that does not take any time at all and can even be done when you are filling up with petrol. This is something I am terrible at doing, and get nagged so much by my husband, but without keeping these topped up your car engine will sieze up or overheat.
To me there is nothing more annoying than squeaky window wipers or wipers that do not clear the window properly, so if you notice your wipers doing this change them asap. You need to have full vision at all times and smeary windscreens make it harder to see what is going on in front of you.
These are just a few things you can do to keep your car in good shape this year, and keep your family safe. Or you could
