Protect Yourself With Roadside Assistance

images-3.jpgThe best thing that you can do to avoid calls for road service is maintain your vehicle. However, many motorists don’t bother to do regular maintenance on their cars, and a lot of them end up stranded in their cars calling for emergency auto assistance. To avoid getting in this situation, follow these simple tips.

First, don’t drive your car with low tire pressure. It used to be that service stations would regularly check the tire pressure on your car when you filled up with gas, however, those days are gone. Underinflated tires will put extra wear on your tires and cause your vehicle to get bad gas mileage. To determine what the correct tire pressure is for your car consult your owner’s manual.

Also, notice if your car has poor alignment. If the steering is different take your car to the shop to be aligned. It helps your alignment to avoid potholes.

Changing your oil on a regular basis is the #1 thing that you can do to keep your car running well. Make sure to do this every 3,000 miles. And, using synthetic oil will let you wait longer in between oil changes.

Follow these simple maintenance tips to avoid being stranded. Of course, make sure to have a number for your road service program on hand in case of unforeseen breakdowns.
