Is your car ready for summer travel?
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!
