Is My Car Ready?

Aside from packing and bringing coffee to stay awake during a road trip, there are many things your car needs checked before a road trip. Any funny noises you’ve been putting off – now is the time t have those looked at. Tires are extremely crucial – a low tire is a potential blowout on the way there. Brakes are also an important piece, as not being able to stop is always dangerous. Other minor things to look at include the speedometer accuracy, fluid levels, and if cruise control works.

If anything that a professional looks over is brought up as “bad,” the best time to replace is before a road trip. It is always best to be safe than sorry, because a tow across multiple states can cost hundreds. Even things that seem like nothing – a belt, for instance, can cause the whole car to stop running should it break.
