This check should only take 10 minutes then you are on your way with a vehicle that reliable and you can trust.
Here are is our 5 point driveway check:
Tires: Check tires including tire pressure and tread. Under inflated tires reduce a vehicle’s fuel economy and uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
Brakes and battery: Check to be sure the battery connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free and that the brakes are functioning properly.
Wipers and lighting: You need to make sure you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and inspect and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.
Filters and fluids: Always check engine oil, power steering and brake, and transmission, as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
Hoses and belts: They can become cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or show signs of excessive wear. These are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering and the cooling system.
Emergency kit: Make sure to check and restock your kit if anything is missing.
