Modern vehicles have many advantages over their older counterparts.  Generally speaking, they’re safer, get better mileage, and they last longer.

Another advantage of new cars – they let you know if something isn’t right.

  • A door is ajar
  • Tire pressure is low
  • Object is behind car
  • Fuel level is low

The low fuel warning has saved me on several occasions. I took that picture of my dashboard this morning. Fortunately, there’s a gas station less than a mile away.

I’ll admit to being in this situation before, but don’t follow my example. Now that winter is upon us, keeping enough gas in your car is especially important.
