Why a Pre-Trip Inspection is Important

No Comments

If you’re planning a road trip, the last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the highway. That’s why it’s so important to do a pre-trip inspection before you hit the road. By taking a few minutes to check your vehicle’s fluid levels, tires, and lights, you can help prevent problems before they start.

Fluids

One of the most important things to check before a road trip is your vehicle’s fluids. This includes oil, coolant, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. Checking these fluids will help ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly and will help prevent breakdowns.

Tires

Another crucial thing to inspect before a road trip is your tires. Be sure to check the tread depth and pressure of all four tires. It’s also a good idea to take a look at the spare tire to make sure it’s in good condition. Remember, properly inflated tires can help improve gas mileage.

Lights

It’s also important to check all of your vehicle’s lights before heading out on a road trip. This includes the headlights, taillights, turn signals, and hazard lights. Not only is it illegal to drive with broken or burnt-out lights, but it can also be dangerous. Having functioning lights will help you see and be seen while on the road.

A pre-trip inspection is an essential part of any road trip planning process. By taking a few minutes to check your vehicle’s fluids, tires, and lights, you can help prevent problems before they start. SAFETY FIRST! And remember, if you ever find yourself stranded on the side of the road, we are here to help.
