Summer vacation … is your car ready?

June 14th, 2010 by

Sum-sum-summertime is finally here, and if you’re planning to spend at least a few of these gloriously warm days on the road, then you really ought to make sure your car is ready for the journey.

Needless to say, routine maintenance is always a good idea, but before you hit the road, you may want to do the following:

  • 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 that, you can hit the road with confidence. Happy travels to all!
