Is Your Car Ready for Safe Holiday Travel?
Holiday season is fast approaching, in a few weeks some of us will be traveling to their hometowns to visit friends and family. But before you hit the road, it’s best to start early in prepping your car for a safe holiday travel. Winter driving can be dangerous, so you have to prepare for the snow and ice, don’t wait for that last minute to get your car fix and check. By starting early not only will you save money but you also get to have that peace of mind knowing that everything that needs to be checked and fixed has been done.
Here are some tips to make your car ready for safe holiday travel:
1. Don’t scrimp on having your car checked by a professional. Go to a mechanic to have a complete car maintenance check-up. It is important to have you car brake, fluid levels, antifreeze, tire pressure, battery, charging system, and belts checked. You can also get some tips from your mechanic on things to do in case of emergency.
2. Replace your windshield wipers with those made especially for winter. And check your windshield washer fluid to make sure that it sprays in freezing conditions.
3. Make sure that your front and rear lights are working perfectly.
4. One thing I’ve learned from my dad and brothers is that when going on a road trip it is always best to be prepared for the worst. Make sure you have complete set of tools for car emergency. Don’t forget to have extra fluid, oil, antifreeze and of course spare tire. Make sure you have emergency first aid kit, blankets, cellphone, your AAA card and list of important phone numbers to call.
