Gearing Up for a Safe Drive: Packing Your SUV

How you pack your car for a road trip can be just as important as getting it regularly serviced in preventing an accident or injury. It is never a good idea to overload your car beyond its capacity.

Newer vehicles now come equipped with tire pressure sensors on each of the wheels. Basically what happens is when the pressure inside one or more tires becomes lower than is recommended, your tire pressure light will come on inside of your vehicle. This is designed to alert you that there is a problem. You can then pull over and take a good look at your vehicle and determine what is going on.

How do You Jump Start a Car?

Car batteries, sad to say, can sometimes die on you at the worst possible time. Extreme weather, leaving the vehicle's headlights on, and other issues may drain a battery. As long as the battery isn't suffering from dead cells or other problems, a simple jump start might revive it.

Use jumper cables to connect a fully-operating car to one with a dead battery to deliver the jumpstart. The cables do need to be properly connected to the correct positive and negative terminals. Failure to do so could destroy the alternator or cause other serious issues.
