Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the lot on your Sparta adventure. It's worth the time to:
- Look over the vehicle and be certain there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
- Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new region
