How you treat your car on a daily basis will affect how well it runs for you. Here at Speedway Towing & Roadside Assistance we help our customers with a variety of problems on a daily basis. As we go about our daily tasks we come across some repeated issues on a regular basis. There are definitely common reasons that cars need to be towed. Today we want to share some tips with you on how to treat your care with car so that you can avoid needing your car towed.

How to Stop Locking Keys in Car!

We get called out to help people that are locked out of their cars on a regular basis. We have spent some time talking to our customers and have discovered a common theme. Frequently the people that lock their keys in their car do not have an automatic place where they put their keys when they turn their car off. We recommend that you work on establishing a routine where you put your keys in the same spot each and every time that you turn your car off. This will help prevent you from locking your keys in the car.

Importance of Routine Oil Changes

Unless you drive an electric car, your car requires oil to run. Car manufacturers recommend that you have routine oil changes to keep your car running efficiently. When you do not have your oil changed as recommended you are more likely to have car problems. Cars breaking down is one of the main reasons that our customers call us to tow their cars.

Heed Car Dashboard Warning Lights

Your car is equipped with a warning system to help you know when your car needs some extra attention. When something is wrong with your car warning lights will frequently come on to alert you. Many people make the mistake of ignoring these warning lights until it is too light. Tons of our customers tell us “My light was on. I knew I should have had my car looked at.” Do not ignore the lights that come on to warn you about issues with your car.

Drive Safely to Prevent Car Accidents

Most drivers are aware of how to drive safely on the road. Unfortunately, drivers do not always put this knowledge into practice. Not driving safely causes accidents on a daily basis. If you want to avoid getting into an accident you should drive safely every single time that you are on the road.
