No Products in the Cart
You should always have certain items in the car, and no, we’re not talking about the piles of trash that are currently in the back seat. This list of car essentials will keep your car running and help you deal with unforeseen obstacles in the road.
You may even run into a “Good Samaritan” opportunity to help a stranded stranger in need. Who knows? You may just meet your future love this way. It’s a stretch, but that doesn’t make these items any less important! While city drivers can do without some of these items since they are never too far from a mechanic, if you plan to visit your kampung or are planning a long road trip, it’s always a good idea to double check some emergency essentials before heading out on the road.
So, use your instinct and view these items as strong suggestions rather than absolute requirements for example. But make sure you've got your license, insurance, and registration first.

5. Fire Extinguishers
Although any size of fire can cause damage, having a fire extinguisher on hand will help prevent extensive damage to your vehicle – this is particularly useful when it turns out your insurance doesn’t cover the cause of the fire (eg. electrical). The thing with vehicle fires is that many people never expect them to happen. You may have your car regularly serviced and not carry dangerous chemicals, but car fires can happen to anyone.
The likelihood of you encountering someone else with a car fire is higher than you experiencing one yourself. As it is not a legal requirement in Malaysia to carry a fire extinguisher in your car, not everyone will have one. If you see someone experiencing a fire in their vehicle, you will be able to help them put it out.
Car fires can be caused by a multitude of issues, including human error, temperature, mechanical and electrical problems. If you’ve had a pest issue in the area you park your car, rodent debris can catch fire when the car heats up, causing the spread of flames throughout your vehicle.
