Ahead of the Christmas holidays, pay attention to these 5 things before traveling by vehicle


The 2024 Christmas and New Year (Nataru) holidays are coming soon. This special moment is used by people for holidays.

Not a few of them travel long distances by vehicle for long holidays.

However, of course, there are several things that must be considered before this activity is carried out. One of them is the condition of the vehicle that will be used for the holiday.

When the vehicle condition is optimal, of course this can prevent potential technical problems that will disrupt travel during the Christmas holidays.

So what can you do to ensure safe travel using a vehicle?

Here are several things that must be paid attention to, especially by car users, as reported by Hyundai Indonesia.

1. Check the condition and suitability of the machine

Before starting a long trip, make sure the machine is functioning properly by checking its condition thoroughly.

The vital component that must be checked is the engine oil by looking at the level of dilution, the size of the oil volume with the help of an oil dipstick.

2. Check the electricity

Another important part is to check the electricity. This is because electrical conditions can affect the performance of other vehicle components and features, from lights, entertainment systems, to starter systems. The importance of excellent electrical performance means that the car battery needs to be checked, including the volume of battery water.

3. Condition of Car Tires

The condition of car tires is one of the things that must be considered because it ensures the safety of both the driver and family.

Cars must check the brake pads and brake fluid to ensure everything is still normal. Don’t forget to check the tire pressure by referring to the guide between the driver’s door. Make sure the tires are still far from the Tread Wear Indicator (TWI) which is available on several types of tires.

4. Leg Conditions 

When traveling during the holidays, it’s a good idea to be prepared to face various road conditions. Also make sure that the other leg components do not make excessive noise. If necessary, carry out spooring and alignment so that the wheels and legs remain safe and comfortable for driving.

5. Availability of Emergency Equipment

To avoid unwanted things during your holiday trip, make sure you keep various emergency equipment in your vehicle, both to anticipate unpleasant conditions for the vehicle and family members.
