Road Trip Essentials for Your Vehicle
When planning a road trip, it’s essential to first think of what preventive steps you can take to ensure your vehicle is ready for the long haul. Many precautionary steps, such as checking tire pressure and tread, fluid and oil levels, wiper blades, belts and headlights, can be done at home at little-to-no cost.
However, if you’d like your vehicle checked by an experienced professional before your trip, consider stopping by a local Goodyear Auto Service for a 29-Point Inspection, which includes checks on tires, fluids, brakes and an under-the-hood inspection. If you experience a flat tire on your road trip, Goodyear Auto Service also offers Free Flat Repair nationwide –if you’ve got a tire that’s flat, punctured or losing pressure, our technicians will repair your tire for free as long as the tire doesn’t need to be replaced.
In case it’s too late for extensive preventive maintenance and you’re just in need of quick tips to get your car road-trip ready, consider taking it to the car wash for a deep clean, topping off necessary fluids, checking and changing the oil, if needed, and making sure tire treads and pressure are still in good shape.
