Car Owner Needs

Here Are 5 Things Every Car Owner Needs

No matter whether you drive in a city or run wild on muddy upstate paths, some unforeseen problems happen to every vehicle and every driver. Of course, experienced drivers are much more unlikely to panic and get frustrated then newbies, but being stuck with a dead vehicle on a road might be quite stressful for everyone. That is why there are certain things that every driver, no matter how experienced they are and what and where they drive, should have in their vehicle. Here is a shortlist of things that every driver should have in their cars.

Spare tire
Make sure it is in good condition, along with a tire jack and tire iron, because without them, the spare tire is useless.

Jumper cables
Dead batteries happen to the best of us. You should familiarize yourself with your own car’s engine just in case things are a little different.

Your car’s manual
Which should be in the glove compartment already, so double check that you have it with you.

Repair contact information
A business card for your auto repair shop, your AAA card (if you’re a member), and car insurance claim forms will also come in handy—you can find some of this stuff online, but you never know when you’ll be caught in an area with no cell coverage or facing an ill-timed dead phone battery. Store them in your glove compartment.

First Aid Kit
A well-stocked first aid kit is an essential item in every home—and in every car. After all, you’re just as likely to get a bump, bruise, bite, or other self-treatable injury while traveling as you are at home.
