5 Things Every Car Owner Should Keep In Their Car

As well as today’s world knows, it saves to be prepared. Whether it’s having enough food in your home for quarantine or having the right tools in your car when you need them, taking the time to prepare for the ‘what if’ is worth it. That’s why our team here at C&G Truck and Auto has come up with a small list of five things every car owner should keep in their car at all times. 

Owner’s Manual

As obvious as this may seem, it’s important to hold on to your car’s manual (or make sure it has one before you decide to purchase it). This little book will tell you pretty much everything you need to know about your car, how it works, and what certain things mean. If you ever have a question about something with your car, check your manual first. 

Tire Pressure Gauge

Whether you notice your tire pressure light come on on your dashboard or you think you’re getting a flat, having a tire pressure gauge comes in handy! Even after you’ve just put air in your tires, it’s good to check the pressure with a manual gauge.  

Jumper Cables

While the ‘what if’ could happen to you, it could also happen to someone else. Keeping a set of jumper cables in your car is smart for when your battery dies and if someone else you may know or run into may need a jump. 

First Aid Kit

Life has a funny way of surprising us with scrapes and cuts in the most inconvenient times, so having a small first aid kit will come in handy when you’re on the road. It’s even a good idea to keep some spare AAA and AA batteries in there, just in case. 


You never know what time of day it’ll be when an accident or emergency happens and you’ll be thankful you had an extra flashlight and some batteries in your car! 

Overall, these are just some helpful suggestions we think will help you out whenever you’re on the road. If you need any services or repairs, don’t hesitate to stop on by C&G Truck and Auto in Myrtle Beach!
