Do not park your cars in the low areas:
Avoid parking in low-lying areas to avoid submerging your car in floods. This reduces the chances of the vehicle getting submerged in the flood to a great extent and saves you huge expenses.
Flooded or damaged cars can be expensive to repair and most companies do not cover water damage. You should always park your car at a high and safe place so that there is no problem.
Keep Battery Disconnected:
Keep your car battery disconnected during heavy rains to avoid short circuit or permanent electrical damage. Electrical damage in a modern car can be very expensive to repair or replace parts.
Keep windows and doors closed:
The easiest thing you can do when it rains is to keep your car doors and windows closed. This reduces the chances of damage to the interior of your car to a great extent.
Leaks and Corrosion:
Check your vehicle for any leaks or rust during monsoon. This is because the process of rusting is accelerated due to the humidity in monsoon. Along with this, do check wherever rubber is attached.
You can keep your car clean during monsoon by using rubber mats as they can be easily washed and dried. In addition, the rubber mat protects the carpet lining from getting wet.
Wet roads are the biggest danger during rains and in such a situation it becomes necessary that the tires of your car are not slippery. Tires need to have deep tread. Get your car tires checked during monsoon and replace if needed.
Check Fluid Level:
