If you always check on your car and make sure everything is in good condition, you might not have to worry too much to go wrong, but sometimes bad luck happens. Then again if you are a really busy person or not car savvy, these are some of the things you should have in your car from some common problems that may occur.
First of all, always have a car jack and spare tire just in case you ever get a flat tire out in the middle of the road. You will need a jack to lift your car off the ground and install your spare tire to get your car rolling back on the road again.
There are times when a person is in a rush and forget to shut off their headlights. If the headlights are on for a long period of time, the car battery may drain and your car may not be able to start up. In this case, you should always have some jumper cables. That way all you would have to do is connect the jumper cables from one cars battery to another to charge your car back up and get it running again.
You should always have a gallon of water in your car. Just in case you have a leak in your radiator or water pump or just ran low in fluids in your radiator. This usually happens with older cars or someone who doesn’t do their regular maintenance. Your car will start to smoke and overheat. You would have to allow your car to cool down and with the gallon of fluids you have, you can refill it and get your car to the nearest mechanic shop.
The other thing you should have in your car is a gasoline spill proof refill tank. I heard of stories of people running out of gas and getting stuck. If you are lucky, you may be close enough to push your car to the nearest gas station, but sometimes you are just too far from one. So at least with a refill gas tank, you can walk there to get gas. The gasoline tank has the mechanics to be leak proof and able to pour gas into your car with ease.
Drive safely and take care your car because it will take care of you.
