Happy Driving Tips

1. Get veh serviced at least a week before you leave. 
2. check oils, Lubes and DEF levels. DEF is there in new Gen vehs, veh won't run if DEF tank empty. 
3. fill up windscreen wiper and add good quality wiper fluid which doesn't coagulate. If wiper leaves a trail while cleaning, change them. Visibility is important and makes a difference in eye fatigue. Use while driving at regular intervals. 
4. Update road side assistance (RSA) data. 
5. Save numbers of service stations enroute. Download veh/ manufacturer specific app.
