Before Hitting the Road, Get a Vehicle Tune Up
Summer is speeding by, and it’s time to enjoy it before it slips away! If you’re about to head out on a road trip, now is a good time to get a vehicle tune up, before you venture into the great beyond, and then get stranded there. Be sure to find a mechanic you trust and avoid any potential break downs on your trip.
The best thing you can do for your car is to have the oil checked and changed regularly. Often, your shop can also check your wiper fluid, tires, water, and the timing belt in the same visit. Your car will have a mileage recommendation for replacing your timing belt, which should be followed. Be sure to also pack an emergency break down kit with jumper cables, a tire jack, flashlight, basic tools, and safety gloves.
If you are considering buying a used car, make sure to have it checked by a professional before sealing the deal. Keep in mind that visiting the dealership may be a better option at times. A good repair shop will tell you if it’s better to go to a dealership for certain maintenance. You may also consider checking reviews online on sites like yelp.com for ratings on your local mechanics.
