Pre-Trip Car Maintenance Checklist

Pre-trip Car MaintenanceAre you planning to take family trip soon? Do you do a lot of work travel by car? Taking care of your vehicle is always important, but it’s particularly important that a professional auto repair technician perform a pre-trip car maintenance checkup. Driving long distances doesn’t only add miles to your car; it also puts wear on your vehicle. To help alleviate the impact of driving long distances and to ensure your vehicle is best prepared for the strain, take it to an auto repair shop in your area. Talk to your technician about the following pre-trip car maintenance so you’re ready for the next big trip!

1. Rotate or Replace Your Tires

Before you travel, you need to make sure your tires are road-worthy. Your local auto repair shop should examine your tire tread, inflation, and wear as part of car maintenance before traveling. They can rotate or replace them as needed.

2. Check Your Battery

Unfortunately, car batteries don’t last forever. Having your battery checked should be part of your regular auto service routine, but make absolutely sure you do it before your next trip.

3. Examine Your Brakes

Malfunctioning brakes simple aren’t something you want to deal with. Make sure you get the car maintenance you need before traveling. Have your technician examine both your brake pads and fluid before heading out.
