Summer Time Travel - Is Your Car Ready?
School will be out before you know it, and you'll be ready to hit the road and go on that vacation you've been waiting for all year. But wait! Have you taken the necessary precautions to make sure your family is safe in the car?
It is recommended that before you leave on that road trip that you have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic. Be sure to have them check your tires for excessive wear and proper tire inflation. Blown tires are a leading cause of loss of control of vehicles. A Qualified mechanic will inspect under the hood to see if any of the engine belts are worn to a point that they may be the cause of a break down leaving you stranded on the side of the road.
Do your windshield wipers need to be replaced for good visibility? There's nothing worse than being caught in a rainstorm only to turn on your wipers and have them slide across your windshield and not provide the clear window you were expecting.
Do you have a set of jumper cables in your car? You never know when you may need them. A routine stop along your vacation route for a bite to eat can easily turn into a nightmare if the car doesn't start due to a weak battery.
Take a few minutes before you hit the road to inpsect your car . It could save your life or the life of a family member.
