Get Ready for the Road!

With COVID-19 restrictions being cautiously eased, you might be thinking about jumping back in the car after a few weeks, or months where it’s been sitting still.

Isolation has been tough and that extended downtime means your car may have been a little neglected. It’s nothing dramatic, but all that time in park means your car needs a little attention before you strike out to shake off the iso-blues.

Don’t spend your first day out of isolation on the side of the road. Before you pack the boot and wind down the windows, take a moment to check your car is safe for the journey and for the unexpected.

  1. Get a Grip – Check Your Tread
  2. Rubber Side Down – Damage Check
  3. Pump It Up – Tyre Pressure Check
  4. Don’t Be a Drip – Oil Leak Check
  5. Stay Chill – Coolant Check
  6. Dipstick Dive – Oil Level Check
  7. Hot & Cold Hoses – Hose Check
  8. Registration Procrastination – Rego Check
  9. Takata Check, Today – Recall Check
  10. Leave the Leaves – Debris Check
  11. Clean the Car – Interior Check
  12. Genuinely Safe – Parts Check

IMPORTANT: If you are unsure, always head directly to your local vehicle dealer to have your car checked. Never get on the road if you have even a small concern about whether or not your vehicle is safe.

This is general information only. Every vehicle is different and all drivers are responsible for their own vehicles. Always consult your vehicle’s manual and contact your local dealer for advice.
