Roadside Emergency Kit

Even if you faithfully follow our 10 maintenance tips, some breakdowns are unavoidable. Do yourself a favor and save some room in your trunk for the following items. They could turn a potential trip-wrecker into nothing more than an unexpected pit stop:
  • Screwdrivers and wrenches of various sizes
  • Jumper cables
  • A jack and tire iron
  • A can of "Fix-a-Flat" for temporarily sealing and inflating a flat tire
  • Water for both the radiator and yourself
  • Emergency flares and reflectors
  • Gloves
  • Blanket and towel
  • Flashlight [source: CBS News]
