Car Protection During the Rainy Season
What should you keep in mind when using a car in the rainy season?

1. Check Tire Condition

Tire is the point of direct contact of the car with the road surface. When old tires are corroded too much (the spikes and drains are smoothed out) a layer of water between the road surface and the tire is created (hydroplaning) in the rainy season. This layer of water prevents too much contact between the road surface and the car, making the car prone to slipping and causing an accident.

Therefore, car owners need to regularly check tires and ensure:

  • Spikes, drainage ditches at least 3mm deep.
  • Tires are not torn, inflated, cracked or excessively worn.

2. Checking the Windshield, Windshield

Best regards and wipers help the driver easily observe and control the car in rainy weather. Therefore, when preparing for the rainy season, drivers need to pay attention to check this detail:

  • Check the wipers: turn on the wipers, if after wiping, there are still traces of water, consider repairing or replacing.
  • Check the rearview mirror: make sure the car has a full rearview mirror and is intact, not blurred, dirty. The rearview mirrors can be adjusted easily during driving.
  • Glass cleaner: check if the washing water is still there, if it is too shallow, add more.

3. Check Brakes And ABS

Braking helps to slow down, stop the car normally and even in emergency dangerous situations when participating in traffic. Especially in the rain, slippery roads, limited visibility, the brake becomes an effective support tool to ensure safety when participating in traffic. If the brake pedal detects a noise (worn brake or uneven brake disc...), the brake does not work... then you need to go to the garage for repair/replacement support as soon as possible.

In addition to car brakes, the ABS system is also very important. This tool helps the driver to brake quickly without locking the wheels (especially when traveling on wet slippery roads). Try to test by driving at a speed of over 20km/h, if the ABS lights on and the brake pedal vibrates, the ABS system is still working fine. On the contrary, if you brake suddenly and the car makes a noise, it means that the ABS system is not stable and needs to be checked. (Refer Common Failure of the Brake System & Simple Repair).

4. Check Vehicle Light System

Visibility in the rain is limited, so it needs assistance from car lights (even during the day).

The car light system includes the following types: daytime running lights, black fog lights, reverse lights, brake lights, tail lights, turn signals, headlights. Entering the rainy season, you need to check and make sure there are no lights that are not lit or flashing.

The fenders help keep the rear of the vehicle clean – good for the car and safe for the driver. In addition to preventing mud from splashing into the rear of the car, the bib also prevents rainwater from hitting the road surface directly - strongly on the car's walls, making the car's paint old. So whether you are traveling on the highway or on rough dirt roads, using fenders in the rainy season is extremely necessary.
