Unfortunately, rubber parts are not indestructible and need occasional replacing. You should always aim to replace rubber parts before they wear out and cause problems on the road.

Windshield wipers should be swapped out every six months. Tires should be replaced every five or six years. Anytime a rubber part feels brittle or has hairline cracks, it needs replacing. This includes radiator hoses, fan and accessory belts, heater core hoses, and all other rubber parts within the engine.

Don't get caught by surprise! Ask your mechanic to check the state of your rubber parts during routine inspections to avoid running into potential issues. It's always better to stop problems before they start!

Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but just in case always keep a fully stocked emergency kit in your car. Make sure to include: a spare cell phone, flashlight, warm blanket, life hammer, first aid kit, roadside flares, snacks, and water. Any old cell phone will do, it doesn't even have to be activated. All cellular providers are required to complete 911 calls by law.

A life hammer can mean the difference between life and death if you're ever in a sinking car. Use it to break your window, cut your seatbelt, and escape.

Periodically check your kit, making sure that everything is fully stocked and in proper working condition.
