What is a commonly ignored car problem?

I know plenty of people that ignore their check engine light or just put a piece of tape over it. What are some commonly ignored car problems that you shouldn't ignore?

Answer
“While people often ignore their dashboard lights, out of sight, out of mind should not apply to cars!
One of the most commonly ignored car problems are your brakes. Many people aren’t aware that grinding noises may mean that you need a new pair of rotors or brake pads. This poses a serious risk should your brakes give out.
Another commonly overlooked problem are your car tires. People don’t check their tires and they completely ignore the depth of their tire treads. As a result, they put their health and safety at risk, especially if they only have liability coverage.
Here are a few more dashboard lights that you shouldn’t ignore:
  • Oil pressure warning
  • Check engine light
  • Airbag warning light
  • Battery or charging alert
Truth be told, all of the warnings are important.
Always make sure to take your car in for routine maintenance to keep safety levels at their highest.
If you worry about any of these warnings causing an accident, it’s a good idea to make sure you have the proper coverage so you and other drivers will be covered. Try using the Jerry app to explore different policies to make sure you have the best coverage for the lowest price.
