Back to School Tips for the Day to Day Driver

Back to School Tips for the Day to Day Driver


On Wednesday, we went over some tips for students whose car’s might sit unused for longer periods of time. Today, we’ve got tips for students who will be using your vehicle daily to get to and from school, sports, work, and other activities. 


  1. Service

Get your vehicle serviced and make sure your fluids are in good condition. If you 

are going to be driving it often, we really need to treat it like any other vehicle. 

Making sure we maintain the performance of the vehicle and its fluids is just as important.


  1. Tires

You’ll also want to do a check in with your tires. What condition are they in? Are they cracking? Wearing unevenly? Older than 7 years? Properly inflated? These are all good things to look into, and answers we can provide. When you bring your car in for service here with us at Honest Wrenches, we can talk over these questions, and find solutions that fit your needs.


  1. Safety Kit

Especially when you’re away from home and family, it’s important to take 

measures for your safety. Be sure you have a safety kit in your car. A blanket, 

first aid kit, flash light, and food and water are all good things to keep in your car 

in case of an accident, or an unexpected breakdown. We might think we don’t need anything like this until disaster strikes, and then we wish we had it. 


    All in all, if you’re a student using your vehicle on a day to day basis, keeping up with your car is just like keeping up with anyone else’s, and we’re happy to help you find your way at Honest Wrenches. We want to make sure you’re on the road longer, safer, and in a reliable vehicle while you head back to the classroom! We wish you all the best and have a very safe and productive school year!
