Preparing Your Vehicle for a Road Trip

With warmer weather on the horizon, now is the time to get your vehicle ready for travel. Your owner’s manual has suggested service milestones that are recommended to keep your vehicle in good shape. Read your manual and see what needs to be serviced on your vehicle. If your car needs a new battery or tune-up, get those things serviced before your trip.

Tire Check

Check the tread, air pressure and wear on all of your tires. Check the spare too! While you are at it, make sure you have all of the proper equipment to change your tire in your vehicle.

Pack the Right Things

A map is a good idea if your GPS goes out. You may also want to consider boots and rain gear if your vehicle breaks down in weather. Blankets, food, water, and flashlights are good for a spring safety kit in the car.

Preparing yourself and your vehicle for a road trip is an easy way to feel secure during a long trip in the car. We at Bayside Toyota hope you have wonderful and safe adventures this spring - and if you need your vehicle serviced before you go, schedule an appointment here at our Prince Frederick, MD location.
