Check Your Tires

If you haven’t done so already, be sure to swap out your winter tires for a set that is more seasonably appropriate. Using winter tires on hot road surfaces comes with several drawbacks, not to mention it will drastically reduce the lifespan of your winter tires. Other negative consequences to keeping winter tires on your vehicle too long include, reduced handling and reduced fuel economy.

Windshield Wipers and Fluid

There is no better safety system than a driver that can see the area around the vehicle. That’s what makes windshield wipers and windshield wiper fluid so critical. Not all windshield wipers are the same. Some are more suited for summer rain conditions, and the same goes for the washer fluid. 

Basic Maintenance

The best way to keep your car, truck or SUV ready for any trip at any time is to keep up with regular factory-prescribed maintenance. This will not only keep fresh motor oil in the engine at all times, but most shops will also top off other fluids as needed. A battery test is also an important pre-trip task. Additionally, be sure that the oil filters and air filters have been changed with each maintenance appointment.
