“Safety First Before You Drive” Vehicle Safety Tips

 Tyres should be inspected at least once a month. The correct pressure information can usually be found on the edge of the driver’s side door.

 Check your tyres for signs of damage or cracks. Even a small crack/cut should be checked by a tyre technician.

 All tyres have tread wear indicators. These indicators appear in the main grooves when the tread has worn down to 1.6mm, showing the tyre needs to be replaced.

 Correct tyre condition is crucial, in fact:

o Worn tyres cause reduced performance. It takes longer to brake on a wet road surface when tyres are worn and there is more risk of skidding.
o Under inflated tyres reduce your control of the vehicle, increase braking distances and wear out your tyres more rapidly.
o Over-inflated tyres reduce grip, reduce stability in braking and lead to poor handling.

 Have your engine oil checked every 1,000kms or before long trips.

 Change your engine oil every 5,000 or 10,000kms, depending on your vehicle and as recommended in the Owner’s Manual.

 Oil filters should be changed regularly too, preferably whenever you change your engine oil – this helps the cleaning and new oil change performance.

 Have regular battery checks to monitor its life and performance by having the charging system and fluid level/condition checked.

 Check for damage and fluid leakage and maintain/clean the battery terminals to avoid any corrosion.

 Change your vehicle’s battery at least every 2 to 3 years.

 Change your wipers and wiper arm periodically.

 Regular inspection should be done for any damages on the blade and crack development.
