As CMH Nissan Midrand, we aim to educate female drivers to be prepared for the unexpected while driving. Women often feel uncomfortable and scared on the roads because of unsafe driving habits.
We have compiled a few car maintenance tips to help protect female drivers on the road.
Study the owner’s manual
Go through your manual book to learn about your car, watch videos if necessary, and be familiar with the many warning signals and their meaning. This helps you know what to do should you encounter problems.
Learn to change the tyre
You can request instructions from your mechanic on how to do it correctly. Females do not often change tyres themselves; they usually seek help. Therefore, it is vital to learn to change a tyre.
Maintain tyre pressure
Always be aware of your tyre pressure. Normalise asking for assistance at petrol stations. Check your tyres to verify the recommended pressure on the driver’s doorjamb.
Inspect the air filter on your vehicle
Regularly inspecting the air filter is critical. Always ascertain it is not clogged and replace it immediately, as this might cause more damage to your vehicle.
Examine the oil and oil filter
Learn how to check and replenish the engine oil accordingly. An oil filter is crucial because it removes all contaminants from the oil.
Make it a routine to regularly check your car’s fluids, including the coolant, power steering fluid, brake oil, wiper fluid, and brake oil. A simple job you can do yourself.
Familiarise yourself with changing a fuse
A fuse replacement is simple. The manual for your car contains instructions, or you can ask our qualified technicians at CMH Nissan Midrand to assist.
