Car Emergency Kit Essentials
If you’ve ever found yourself in need of something you didn’t have on you at the time, you know how devastating not being prepared can be. Being prepared is especially important when it comes to car trouble. As your Fort Wayne, IN, Dodge dealers, we want to help you stay prepared for roadside emergencies by offering some tips on essentials to always keep somewhere in your vehicle.
If you looked at your cell phone right now, how likely would it be that it’s charged to 100 percent? A low or empty battery is normally an annoyance, but when you find yourself stranded, it can be a major problem. Keeping a charger in the car can help make sure it doesn’t become an issue.
Having a first-aid kit in the car is a good idea even if you aren’t having car trouble. Having basic medical supplies on hand, such as bandages, antiseptic, and a pain reliever can help if you need to address a minor cut or scrape.
Having cat litter in the car, even if you don’t have a cat, can be a lifesaver. It can create a surface for your 2018 Dodge Challenger to get traction and find its way out of mud or snow.
If you happen to be stranded after sunset and need to inspect your vehicle or check under the hood, you’ll need light to help you see what you’re doing. While most cellphones have flashlights on them, a waterproof flashlight and (extra batteries just in case) will be helpful in inclement weather.
If you want even more suggestions, you can speak with a friendly technician here at our Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM and FIAT service center. We look forward to helping you safely prepare to take on Indiana roads no matter the time of year.
