Car Maintenance Before Your Next Big Trip

car maintenanceAre you and your family planning to travel over the holiday season? If so, it’s vital that you service your vehicle beforehand. Taking your car to a professional auto technician regularly should be part of your routine. And doing so before a big trip is especially important. Here are several car maintenance service items you should have your auto repair specialist check before you head out.


If you’re traveling, checking your tires is absolutely essential, especially if you know you’ll be on the road for a long period of time. Make sure a tire inspection (and possibly rotation) is part of your car maintenance before you hit the road.


Another important feature to have your auto service shop check before traveling is your car battery. When you take your vehicle in, have a technician check the battery strength and clean the terminals. The last thing you need is the cost of replacing a battery while traveling.


There’s nothing worse than experiencing a brake malfunction while you’re traveling with you family over the holidays. Have your brakes checked by a professional before you leave, and request any necessary auto repairs be done right away.
