With Summer break just a few weeks away, I know so many families will be hitting the road for fun road trips to reconnect and to spend quality time together. Laughter and family adventure make these journeys memorable not auto malfunctions or accidents. That is why I am so happy to have partnered with SYLVANIA Auto to share these headlight maintenance tips.
So whether you and the family are headed to your favorite local destination or heading on a cross-country road trip, there are a few things you need to do to your car before hitting the road.
UNDERSTAND THE CHOICES IN HEADLIGHT PERFORMANCE LEVELS
When it comes to headlights performance, there are a variety of choices available on the market to help suit consumer’s individual needs. For instance, there are options available that offer brighter down road visibility to help drivers see farther down the road, and to better distinguish objects on the side of the road better compared to basic headlights.
REPLACE BEFORE BURNOUT
All too often, vehicles with a burned out headlight can be found traveling on dark roads, posing a risk to both the driver and others on the road. With one headlight out, drivers are essentially seeing half as well as they potentially could. If a vehicle owner cannot remember the last time headlights were changed, it may be time for replacements.
ALWAYS REPLACE IN PAIRS
It’s very important to replace headlights in sets of two. Since headlights dim over their lifetime, a new bulb paired with an old bulb will create an uneven field of vision, which can be a major distraction on the road for both drivers and oncoming traffic.
DO IT YOURSELF
Changing a vehicle’s headlight bulb can be a simple process that doesn’t require a mechanic or service professional. In fact, various online guides and resources exist to help consumers swap out headlight bulbs in a matter of minutes. Consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual for bulb/headlight replacement procedures, needed tools and safety precautions. Always wear safety glasses and work gloves, as well.
