What's the best tools to have in car in case.of emergency break down?
Umbrella............................................looking under the hood in the rain
Plastic tarp..................................to sit on the ground or cover a window
Gallon or two distilled water
Transmission fluid (or clutch fluid)
Tire changing equipment (lug wrench, jack, air pump)
Cell phone charger
Pot holder (under the hood gets hot)
Set of wrenches
Needle nose pliers
Flashlight and batteries
Laminated card with emergency contact numbers on it
Also keep shoes in the car for at least one person who can walk to a gas station, even if you're on the way home from a dressy event. In cold weather, don't assume you won't need coats.
Flares, possibly matches or flint and steel. These are getting out there....but I've survived several emergencies and can't avoid thinking this way. Also, you need a food resource appropriate for the passengers, as well as water.
Paper and a pen and a marker.
If I think of something else, I'll add it in comments.
