The kids are out of school, which means it’s time to pack your bags and head out on a road trip. But, before you leave, follow these tips on preparing your car for a summer road trip.
- Get a tune up. Schedule an appointment to have your car checked out before you leave. Have the oil changed, tires rotated, A/C inspected, and anything else you might need before you hit the road.
- Clean your car. You don’t want to be driving around with pounds of unnecessary junk in your car. Not only will this reduce your cargo capacity, but it will reduce your fuel efficiency too. Spend an hour or two cleaning out your car and you’ll be glad you did.
- Be prepared for issues. You had your car inspected, but that doesn’t mean you won’t accidentally leave your headlights on and drain your battery. Be prepared with a roadside emergency kit, including jumper cables, a first aid kit, flashlight, and other tools.
