After spending money to rent a car, what else do you need to do before you drive it away? Are you ready to drive away directly? Nanjing Wanshan Hongdu Automobile Service Co., Ltd. reminds the city residents: Never drive away casually, remember to do something before boarding the car, and remember the following four steps! uuuuuuuuuuuu
I. Brief inquiry about vehicle condition before boarding
After renting a vehicle, first of all, we need to know how the current vehicle condition is, especially whether the operating system is sensitive and where problems are prone to occur. Especially, we should pay special attention to braking, steering and lighting which directly affect the safety of driving. In addition, fuel oil, coolant, lubricating oil, brake fluid and main parts of transmission system should also be inspected. If necessary, a trial run should be made to familiarize and check the working conditions of clutch, throttle, brake and engine. If problems are found, the owner should be promptly explained. Especially the vehicles leased from car rental companies need to be carefully checked. Even some minor faults should be clearly explained. We can't drive the car at a glance. One is to avoid traffic accidents, the other is to reduce the trouble when we return.
2. Find out the position of all instruments and operating systems
After entering the cab, the driver's seat should be adjusted properly, and then the function of each instrument and the position of the operating parts should be familiar from left to right. In order to grasp the position of instruments and operating parts, first, we can read the vehicle use manual, and compare it with the manual, and make it clear one by one. Especially for imported vehicles, there are many auxiliary instruments, which are difficult to understand at once, and we should check them carefully. Second, in the absence of a manual, the car owner can be directly informed, in order to prevent chaos and distraction in driving. Especially the position of each gear, horn, wiper, light switch, automatic door lock, instrument and switch of various warning signals.
3. Start the vehicle and operate it by hand
Before going on the road, the operators mentioned above should be operated by hand several times. This not only helps to remember their location, but also checks their working conditions. More importantly, it can avoid confusion in driving. For example, the light control switch, some are screwed, some are pulled, some are pushed; reversing gear is pushed directly, some are pushed down first, then pushed; wiper switch some are on the steering wheel, some are on the dashboard... All of these require a few practical operations in order to apply freely and avoid errors in driving after traveling.
IV. Start the vehicle and carefully check the instruments and warning signals.
After clarifying the previous steps, we should carefully observe the operation of various instruments and warning signal devices under the condition of engine operation, especially the indication of odometer and fuel meter, engine water temperature meter, pressure gauge and ammeter. Many vehicles have replaced all kinds of instrument pointers with warnings. Watch the flashing warning lights carefully and be familiar with their location, use and working conditions. Every signal displayed on the dashboard reminds us of some problems that need attention.
In short, when renting vehicles, we should be more careful and cautious. We must not act rashly. We should not only be responsible for ourselves from the safety point of view, but also for car owners from the point of view of caring for vehicles. You can't just try to be smart for a moment, regardless of whether you ignore it, just drive away, but you'll regret it if there's an accident.
