Cars are complex pieces of machinery with thousands of moving parts. To be on the safe side, here are things car owners should check before leaving the garage and experiencing car trouble on the road:

Dashboard lights If anything is wrong with any of the major components of the car, drivers will see a small sign on the dashboard light up. From gas to battery issues, motorists should make sure all the important lights are off before leaving the parking garage.

Oil This is especially important if motorists see leakage of oil underneath the car while its parked in the garage. There is a dipstick that can be found under the hood of the car, which car owners can use to examine not just the level of the oil, but also the quality. If there is indeed a leak, motorists will be able to spot it with the dipstick as faint markers above the darkened level will reveal how much oil was lost.
