Summer 2019 Road Trip Prep Tips for Used Cars
Are you planning on a road trip this summer? Is it down to Tennessee or out to California? No matter where the road takes you and your friends/family this summer, your used vehicle from Poulin Auto Sales will help get you there. But before you hit the road, you need to take care of business to ensure a smooth journey. Here are some tips to help get your vehicle ready:
Road Trip Prep Tip #1: Give Your Vehicle Some TLC
This is a no brainer for anyone who is planning on hitting the road this summer. When your vehicle is well-maintained, it will get you to your planned destination and back home again with no problems along the way. Some basic pre-travel maintenance tasks include changing the oil, inspecting the brakes, checking your tires’ tread depth and air pressure, and topping off fluids.
Road Trip Prep Tip #2: Pack an Emergency Kit
You never know what can happen out on the road, so make sure that you are carrying a usable spare tire, basic car care tools, a couple of blankets, a basic first aid kit, and a list of roadside assistance numbers and emergency contacts.
Road Trip Prep Tip #3: Make Sure All Information is Up to Date
It seems like whenever there is a road trip, there will be a state trooper who pulls you over. Maybe that only happens in the movies, but it never hurts to be prepared by having your license, registration, and insurance information current and ready to present.
Have fun and stay safe on the road this summer!
