  • Inspect the car and determine if there is any damage or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
