Drivers habits that harm the car
• The habits of drivers who cause harm to the vehicle
Like any other technology, the car has the ability to break down. It is one thing when the vehicle comes into disrepair due to "old age" and quite another when a malfunction causes the negligence and carelessness of the motorist. Sometimes it happens that the driver unwittingly cause damage to your car, acquiring bad habits that regularly repeats.
Riding half empty the tank
This habit is typical for many motorists, and, most likely, it may be from ignorance, to which such an action may result in due course. Unequivocally say that one should never bring the tank to complete "exhaustion", especially if the age of the car is calculated in years. If the opposite habit - regularly fill the tank - is not fulfilled, there is a great risk in the future to pay a lot of money for the repair of the entire fuel system. Ideally, the vehicle tank must not be emptied more than 3/4. And fill the car with the best from the most "neck", rather than doing a few refills a little bit.
Immediately after the purchase of the vehicle should be clarified from the previous owner or read in the papers to the vehicle information on its capacity. If you overload the machine on a regular basis - over time it is inevitable ruin it. car load more situation leads to rapid wear of parts, as well as a multiple increases the risks to the health and the life of the driver and passengers in the event of an accident or in case of other extreme situations, such as a skid.
One of the most common bad habits of the majority of drivers. Sharp start and the same braking, driving a car, which is not sufficiently warmed up - this and much more will shorten the life of the vehicle, leading to rapid wear of critical parts and repair of the roads.
The majority of motorists are firmly convinced that the need to use the parking brake only appears when the vehicle is on a slope. And this is partly true, because thanks to the handbrake can be sure that the machine in the absence of the driver will not slide. But at the same time, even if the car is on level ground, to neglect the use of the parking brake is not worth. This is due to the fact that the hand brake is a multiple of reducing the load on the clutch, and this extends the life of the vehicle.
The hand on the gearshift lever
Some people believe that if you regularly leave your hand on the gearshift lever, then eventually it will lead to malfunction of the same "box". As far as this is true - hard to judge, yet powerful arguments in the proof and in refutation of this. But it is proved by the fact that if during the movement on the steering wheel is only one arm, then the chances of getting into an accident is a multiple increase. And what could further hurt the car is not a "meeting" with another vehicle?
