Q: How do I get my car ready for summer travel?

June 3rd, 2013 by

A: Indeed, summer travel season is upon us. If you’re planning to hit the road – even for a weekend getaway – here’s what you ought to do to make sure your car is ready for the journey.

Plan ahead and take your car in for a service checkup a couple of weeks before you leave. (There’s nothing worse than an unplanned stop for emergency repairs.) Ask your service technician to:

· Rotate and inspect your tires

· Check your brakes

· Top off or change fluids (oil, coolant, brake and transmission fluid)

· Change any bulbs that are not working

· Replace worn windshield wipers
