Get Ready for a Summer Road Trip

Summer

Traveling during the summer is an American tradition, but some cars may not be up for a long journey. We here at Crossroads of Corinth have a few tips to help you get ready for a summer road trip!

Inspection

Hit the road with confidence that your vehicle is up to par and can handle whatever the open road has to offer. Having your vehicle professionally inspected a few weeks prior to heading out on a summer road trip can help spot and fix problems, effectively avoiding a potential breakdown on the road. Make sure to have the oil changed, tires rotated, and fluids checked as well. It wouldn’t hurt to give the tires a good look before you leave either.

Tools

Packing a set of tools can go a long way, especially if you expect some mechanical problems on the road. At the very least, every driver should include a pry bar, tire wrench, and jack, just in case you end up with a flat tire.

Wipers

Windshield wipers are usually the last car part on your mind before a road trip. The wipers are a pertinent safety feature, especially in wet climates that experience rains throughout the summer. Fortunately, a new set of wipers is both cheap and quick to install.
