Inspect the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose, or showing signs of excessive wear.
Remember to inspect the battery. Make sure the connection is clean, tight, and corrosion-free.
Check the brake system, including the brake rotors and pads. Remember to notice if there is a change in how your vehicle brakes when you apply the pedal.
Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
Remember to check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during when there is precipitation. By checking these parts, you can help ensure that your vehicle is in the best condition possible when you drive.
