Check your windshield wipers
If your blades are worn out, you may not have clear visibility in rainy weather. Buy new blades but before you go to buy them, make sure you know the exact model of your car. Here are easy instructions.
Check your brakes
Changing brake pads more frequently actually saves you money in the long run. By leaving brake pads in too long, the brake rotors—much more expensive pieces of equipment—wear down at a much faster rate. Even the most advanced cars have problems—and so, the car experts at RepairPal have created guidelines for brake safety. Rule 1: Scraping sounds likely mean it's time for new disc brake pads. This sound comes from metal grinding against metal—which can affect the speed at which your car stops. It's wise to get this fixed as soon as possible.
Rule 2: If your brake pedal sinks to the floor, beware.This may be a sign that the master cylinder—which holds your brake fluid—is not properly holding pressure, a potentially dangerous condition that can cause brakes to stop functioning the way they are supposed to. Get this checked out as soon as possible. Rule 3: Don't consistently ride the brakes while going downhill.By resting your foot on the pedal unnecessarily, it can wear out the brake pads much more rapidly than would happen normally. Rule 4: Spending an hour getting your brakes checked out before you go can save you dozens of hours (and dollars) later.
