What should you pay attention to in your car before going on holiday?


It is very important to ensure a correct inspection of the vehicle and thus avoid any accident before the summer holidays.

According to the CIS Barometer, 78% of Spaniards preferred the car as a mode of transport to travel in the summer of 2021, as it can move and move autonomously and is not subject to departure or arrival times at the destination. For this reason, it is very important to conduct a pre-assessment of the condition of the car. In this way setbacks are avoided that disrupt the trip or spoil the planned plans.

For this reason, they’ve gathered from Northgate what key aspects to check and take into account before the summer break starts, as well as tips for drivers on when to take the car to the workshop.

First of all it is very important
pay attention to sounds, as this can be the first warning sign of a problem. For example, the need to top up coolant, the erosion of the brake pads or the disc starting to wear. As for odors, if the car suddenly gives off a strong fuel smell, it is possible that there is a leak in the system or that the catalytic converter is causing problems. For example, if the smoke emitted by the vehicle changes color, especially if it is bluish, this may indicate that some part of the engine is worn out and it is best to get to the workshop quickly.

Another recommendation is to borrow
attention to the intensity of the lights and not waiting for them to melt, because this way we avoid driving without them being fully operational, with the consequent vision problem that this can bring.

There are also certain checks that all vehicles must perform that are important to keep in mind for:
anticipate possible failures For example, it is recommended to change the oil, coolant and brake fluid every 20,000 or 30,000 km; replace the tires with new ones if they already have a service life between 40,000 and 50,000 km; replace the timing belt between 100,000 and 120,000 km.
