It’s time for summer road trips, and while you may have an extended warranty, that doesn’t mean you want to have car trouble while you’re supposed to be enjoying fun in the sun. Here are three things you can do to reduce the potential for a breakdown.
- Don’t Skip Maintenance – Your car’s manual should outline how often various maintenance services need to be performed. Sticking to this schedule should help lengthen the life of your vehicle and prevent breakdowns.
- Keep an Ear Out – When something is going wrong with a car, it usually gives you some advance notice. If you are used to driving around with the music up, take your car out for a ride in a quiet area with no music so you can listen for an indicator that work needs to be done.
- Give It a Once Over Before Driving – Before you leave for your trip and every time you take a break, visually inspect your car before getting back in to drive. The last thing you want to do is take off driving on a low tire. It could lead to a blowout or at least damage to the tire that requires repairs on the road.
