If you own a car, ownership can sometimes be beset with problems. Cars are fundamentally difficult things and can present you with various issues during their lifetime. Here are some of the most common issues to look out for:

  • Problems with the brakes. You will often notice that something is going wrong when you press down on the brake pedal – the car may swerve a little of it might make a crunching noise. You might also notice the brake light ignite on your dashboard.
  • Engine issues. Look out for a smoking, overheating engine and listen out for different sounds that could indicate a problem.
  • Air conditioning problems. If you are lucky enough to have air con, keep an eye on how well it is functioning and get it recharged regularly.
  • Problems with oil or fluids. Look out for fluid underneath the car to alert you to any issues.

All these issues could represent many different problems. Talk to a mechanic for a definitive diagnosis.
