Other measures that we at Shifting-gears.com think a car owner should take in the monsoon are as follows:-
- Before moving out check on windshield wipers, windshield cleaning solution tanks and any tree leaves logged between the wiper and the glass surface. if possible use a water repellant solution on the ORVMs available locally.
- Keep the tyres in check – The tyres tread depth is what makes the water on the road surface seep out of the tyre’s surface to provide grip, adequate tyre tread will provide with good grip and reduce risks like skidding and loss of control over the vehicle.
- Avoid waterlogged road and in case the vehicle gets flooded do not attempt to restart the engine as it may cause a short-circuit in sensitive electronics of the vehicle making the damage permanent.
