Summer is a great time for a road trip. But before you hit the road make sure your vehicle is ready for the trip by using this checklist.

  • Get an oil change
  • Make sure all fluids are topped off, including transmission, power steering and even windshield washer
  • Check all filters
  • Have your brake system checked
  • Check the tire pressure
  • Check your tires’ tread and look for any bulges and bald spots
  • Make sure all belts are intact and hoses are all properly connected
