No matter whether you drive primarily in the city or spend time off-roading on one of our many desert trails, problems can happen when you least expect them. No matter how experienced of a driver you are, being stuck with a dead vehicle on a road can be very stressful. That is why we recommend that every driver, no matter where they drive, should carry these 5 things with them in case of an emergency.
Spare tire, jack, and lug wrench.
Flat tires top the list of frustrating car troubles. And it might get even worse when you realize that you do have a spare tire but lack a jack or the lug wrench. Even if you have roadside assistance, it’s always good to have these items on hand in case your phone is out of service, or they can’t come for an extended period of time.
A dead battery is one of the most common malfunctions you might face. Especially because it usually happens in the morning, when you’re trying to get to work. Jumpstarting a car is quite an easy process, as long as you have a set of jumper cables and someone willing to give you a jump.
