Bought a new Dodge from Wolfchase Chrysler Dodge Jeep? Congrats! Buying a new car (or a “new to you” car) can be a stressful and joyous time. When you are there you have all the help you need but when you drive away you are kind of on your own. So how do you keep yourself and your passengers safe? By keeping some basic items in your vehicle!
Booster (jumper) cables
These can enable you to get your car started with a dead battery (if a good Samaritan comes along) and also enables you to help someone out in a fix.
First aid kit (and manual)
This can be vital if you’re in an accident and someone has injuries. Slowing down bleeding quickly can mean the difference between walking something off and going into shock.
If your tire has a pretty rapid leak, Fix-a-flat can often provide just enough to get you to a repair station. I recommend at least two cans.
Tire repair kit
If the tire has deflated rapidly, a tire repair kit makes it possible for you to patch up the tire well enough for a short period.
Tire air gauge
This one isn’t so vital for emergencies, but is absolutely essential for preventive maintenance – keeping your tires fully inflated not only improves gas mileage, but reduces the risk of tire explosions.
These are invaluable at night so that others can see you if you need to change a tire or such things.
Flashlight (and extra batteries)
Similarly, a flashlight is utterly essential at night if you need to change a tire.
This can help loosen any bolts that won’t come loose.
