With traffic and pot-holes on practically every route in Lagos, driving is considered an unpleasant aspect of Lagos living. As a result, it is expected that you inspect or visit a car repair shop on a frequent basis to maintain its automobile efficiency.
It doesn’t matter if you are always riding a long-distance or not, you should always examine your car. Traveling necessitates precise planning and requires that your car is in prime condition practically the whole voyage.

Here is an auto checklist you should complete before embarking on any road trip:
👉 Inspect the headlamps, flashers, and brake lights. Also, keep an eye on the fluid levels, which include washer fluid, coolant, brake fluid, and engine oil. Perform any routine maintenance, such as topping/changing the oil.
👉 Look for streaks on the windshield wipers. If there is a wobble or if the surface does not clean, then it is time for a replacement.
👉 Examine your vehicle’s battery, water level, loose connections, loose wires, and rust. Check that the battery is charged and that the terminals are clean. For rapid cleaning, a little bicarbonate powder and water will come in helpful. Consider the period of replacement and select the appropriate battery for your vehicle, or contact our specialists.
👉 Check if tires are properly inflated and not worn out (uneven tread wear suggests a problem with alignment). Ensure that the pressure is set in accordance with your vehicle’s requirements. Properly inflated and balanced tires can increase the fuel system performance of your car.
👉 Check for suspension problems, such as damaged shocks, springs, broken mounts, gaskets, and vehicle flailing.
👉 Test the brake pads on your vehicle to ensure they are not worn out. Please replace them immediately if they are worn out.
👉 To avoid unbearable heat in traffic, ensure air filters are free of dirt and other impurities, for proper circulation.
Regardless of your location, we consider that consistent car servicing is more reliable and efficient. Book an appointment today at our auto repair shop, Automecho today, and your car shall become your best friend.
Your Car, Our care.
