Important Vehicle Checklist Before Holiday Trips

Is your vehicle ready for the holiday road trip?

  • Get a multipoint inspection before traveling--a thorough analysis will let you know exactly what your vehicle needs.
  • Inspect tire tread and inflation. Tires are the only safety feature that actually touches the road.
  • Test the battery. With cold winter temperatures comes the risk of a dead battery.
  • Batteries older than 3 years should be tested more frequently to ensure it can survive the cold weather.
  • Replace wiper blades. Long, hot summer days can crack the rubber or silicone blades.
  • Check the antifreeze to assure it starts in cold weather.
