How do I prepare my car for a road trip?

Before you take your car on a long road trip, you should make sure you’re prepared to travel safely. We suggest taking your car to a mechanic for a professional check-up, but if you are limited on time, here are some do it yourself tips:

  • Check under the hood to make sure all fluids are topped off and all belts are working properly.
  • Look over the outside of the car to make sure the wiper blades are in good condition, tires are fully inflated, and tire tread isn’t worn.
  • Pack an emergency kit that includes items such as water, non-perishable food, a blanket, a flashlight and jumper cables.
