Planning a Summer Road Trip? Schedule a Pre-Trip Inspection Today!
Summer is road trip season. Whether you’re going 200 or 2000 miles from home, it’s important that your vehicle is able to get you there. That’s why you should visit our automotive repair shop to avoid any untimely breakdowns and ensure you and your family stays safely on the road during your trip.
Here is what our ASE-certified technicians will look for when you come in for a pre-trip inspection.
Your tire pressure will be inspected. Properly inflated tires will increase your MPG by 3.3%. That can add up when you’re driving long distances!
Hitting the road with old, dirty fluids is a huge risk. Not only will it harm your MPG, but it can easily cause major components on your vehicle to fail. Your oil, transmission fluid, coolant and washer fluid should be inspected and replaced if needed. Our certified technicians can do all of this for you quickly and efficiently.
Don’t forget about these guys! Windshield wipers can take a beating in the winter. If they are neglected through the spring, they will be almost useless during a summer rain storm. If you haven’t the slightest clue as to what type of wiper is best, feel free to ask a member of our staff. We’re happy to help find and install the right wiper blades for your car.
Transmissions, brakes and timing belts are just a few things that should also be looked at before a long trip. Stop by Driven Automotive and let us keep your family safe on the road while you focus on creating those lifelong road trip memories!
While this list covers some of the top items that should be inspected this is not all of them. When you bring in your vehicle before a long road trip we perform a full 22-point inspection to help identify any potential problem areas.
