Preparing for Summer Trips

 It’s finally that special time of year when the weather gets warm and the road trips get planned. Whether you’re spring breaking down at the beach or planning a summer getaway with the family, these early days are by far the best time to perform a little routine maintenance on your vehicle. As they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Here’s a short checklist of some things you should check out on your car before your next trip:

Tire Maintenance

It’s a good idea to check the air pressure on your tires to ensure none have developed leaks. If you’ve been driving on one set for a while, be sure to have them rotated before you set out on your next journey. Old, worn, patched, or plugged tires should probably be replaced as soon as possible. Better tires give you a safer, more efficient ride.

Engine Maintenance

Check to ensure your battery is storing a charge and your oil is at the right level for your vehicle. If it’s been a few months since your last oil change, check into a local shop and change the oil in your engine. Don’t forget to check the coolant levels and air filters as well!

Glass Maintenance

It may not seem like a big deal, but driving with broken auto glass can be a dangerous game. Not only are you at risk of receiving a ticket, but skipping the auto glass repair portion of your maintenance could leave you with a windshield that is weak instead of strong. Windshields are not designed with cracks in mind and operate their best when no problems are present.
