8 Car Hacks Only a Few Drivers Know About

Automobiles are intended to simplify life. However, buying a car also comes with a package of additional responsibilities and costs that, on the other hand, may make your life more challenging. And nobody wants that.

Because of this, we’ll provide you with some advice that will allow you to actually own the vehicle.

 

 

1. Keep your wheels straight

It’s crucial to avoid turning your wheels in advance when making a hard or rapid turn. Although it may appear easy and time-saving, doing so puts you directly in the path of oncoming traffic if someone hits your automobile from behind.

 

2. Key fob to the head

Have you ever been in a situation where you can’t remember where you parked your car and the area is too big for you to find it with ease? Press the “unlock” button while holding the key fob to your head. You will hopefully have more success finding your car because your head will operate as a conductor and increase the signal’s range.

 

3. Use some oil

Rub the surfaces in your car’s interior with some olive oil to make it look brand new and shiny. It will make drab consoles gleam well. However, be careful while applying it to the steering wheel because you don’t want to make it slick and put yourself or others in danger.

 

4. Winter parking

In the winter, nobody likes to waste valuable mornings time scraping ice from the windshield. Parking with your back to the sun is an easy fix for this. In this manner, you can save time by having the ice melt as the sun rises.

 

5. Tablet/Phone holder

Use a bungee cord to wrap around the headrest section of the seat and secure the tablet/phone in the hooks if you can’t find a tablet holder, you’re running late, or the kids are simply being uncooperative. It’s a simple and affordable fix.

 

6. Apply nail polish

Put some clear nail paint over your windshield if it has a little crack. It won’t be seen, it’ll keep the parts together, and it should stop the crack from getting worse.

 

7. Air freshener

Get some wax melts, put them in a cup, and place it inside your car as an alternative to purchasing pricey car air fresheners. When it’s hot outside, the temperature inside the car will rise, the wax will melt, and there will be a pleasant smell.

 

8. Pay attention to trucks

Particularly for new drivers, trucks can be scary. In addition to the fact that doing so could save your life in the event of an accident, truck drivers use radios to communicate with one another, so you should pay attention to them as well. They communicate with one another about traffic accidents and which lane is moving more quickly. So, for instance, you might want to slow down if a truck is doing so.
