The holidays are just around the corner, which for many
of us means getting into the car and taking a road trip. But before you go, you
need to make sure your car is ready for the journey! Here are some tips from
our brake repair service company:
1. Check fluids: Motorists often don’t check their fluid levels enough, so make sure to check your coolant, oil, and brake fluid.
2. Check lights: It’s simple to do, but important to make sure all of your vehicle’s lights are working.
3. Check wipers: Make sure your windshield wipers don’t need to be changed. This should be easy to determine based on how well they clear away liquid. Use your windshield washers to spray your windshield and see if they do their job.
4. Check tires: If you’re due for new tires, be sure to get them before your trip to ensure your safety. If you’re not due, check the air pressure and look at your tires for any sign of over-wearing or damage.
