Is your car ready for summer travel?

June 11th, 2012 by

Ah, summertime … the perfect time to hit the road! Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or the great American family vacation, you’ll want to make sure your car is ready for the road.

For starters, you’ll want to plan ahead. It’s always a good idea to schedule a full safety inspection a couple of weeks before your trip. Don’t wait until the last minute – if something is wrong, you’ll need time to get it fixed before you skip town.

It’s a good idea to:

  • Rotate tires and have them inspected
  • Check brakes
  • Top off or change fluids (oil, coolant, brake and transmission fluid)
  • Change any bulbs that need to be replaced
  • Replace worn windshield wipers
  • Wash car, inside and out

Once you do these things, you can hit the road with confidence!
