Holy Week is the only time where most of the people are given a reason to take a mandatory break from their daily routine. It is also the best time to go to different beaches or resorts with family and loved ones. However, everyone is too busy preparing for their road trips and out-of-town vacations that they tend to overlook the details about their car’s safety.

Always bear in mind that safety must be a priority to ensure a worthwhile vacation. With that, we listed 10 things you must check before going out this Holy Week.

1. Air Pressure

Checking the air pressure of your tires will ensure a smooth driving experience and ultimately your car will survive long road trips. Tires which are correctly inflated will give the driver better handling, a dependable grip on the road and improve its fuel economy. Proper way of checking the air pressure of tires is indicated in your car’s manual.

You’ll find the manufacturer’s optimum or recommended tire pressure for your car on a sticker in the door jam, or in your owner’s manual. Some models even place the stickers on the trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended pressure is usually between 30 and 35 PSI.
