Everybody loves a good road trip, but if you fail in preparing your automobile for a road trip it could spell disaster. Do not be tricked into believing that your brand-new automobile doesn’t need to be examined, a quick check can mean the difference in a carefree drive or a roadside malfunction. We’ve put together a quick car maintenance checklist of the top points you must examine prior to your next road trip.
Even if your vehicle is brand-new that does not indicate it’s ready for a lengthy journey. If your automobile is past due for an oil change, has a tire with an air leak, or has a burnt taillight then you absolutely should get those things repaired prior to dreaming of the open road. In addition, if you don’t currently have an emergency kit in your automobile, you need to get one before your next road trip. Despite all the trip preparation on the planet, things can go wrong. A little bit of prevention can help exceptionally with unpredicted automobile difficulties.
Ok, you are prepared to check your automobile with a fine-tooth comb, but where do you begin? Your road trip checklist should concentrate on 3 major areas: Fluids, Wheels and Tires, and Maintenance. While not an extensive list, if you thoroughly examine these locations your chances of a nonstop road trip get better.
You understand your automobile much better than anyone. Take it out for a fast spin to see if something really feels off. This isn’t a pleasure cruise so switch off the radio and concentrate. Does your vehicle pull to one side under heavy braking? Does your Air Conditioning blow cold air? If something feels off, you should have an expert take a look into it.

Quick service, very friendly, offered a free car wash with the service. I didn’t wait very long.
Good service. Great staff. Great communication. Will likely bring my car back again next time.
Great dealership. However, I had a screw on one of my tires and was told it was too far to the side of the tire and therefore couldn’t be fixed. However I could buy a new tire to replace my old one with only 18K on it. I was not losing air, so I didn’t get a new tire. I ended up at Castro, they pulled the 1/16-inch screw out, checked for leaks, plus tire pressure and lug nut torque on all four tires. NO CHARGE. They saves me about $300. I believe in supporting my dealership, but that’...
People were very friendly and efficient. Pleasant experience and quick service during my buying process.
My wife and I had a great experience at this dealership. The salesman, the sales manager, and the finance manager were all great to work with. I felt that they listened to us and gave us a very fair deal. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a quality car at a good price.
