Schedule A Maintenance Check/Tune-up

If you are planning on taking a long road trip, you want your car to be in operating at its best. Having the oil changed and all of the fluids checked will make sure your car runs as it should. During a full maintenance check and tune-up, the mechanic will also check your lights, windshield wipers, and any other systems to ensure they are functioning properly. They may change out your wiper blades if they are worn and even fill your windshield washer fluid. Checking your tires is also on the list.

Put Together An Emergency Kit

It’s always a good idea to have an emergency kit in the trunk of your car. This can include a blanket, flashlight, bottled water, jumper cables, first aid kit, and any other items your family may need if they are forced to stop for a long period of time due to an accident or other emergencies.
