Spring is nearly over which means summer is right around the corner! That means it’s time for a road trip. Whether you’re heading out with friends and family or on your own, there’s a few things you can do to prepare to make this the trip of a lifetime. Here are a few tips on preparing for summer road trips from us here at Freehold Buick GMC!
- Check the Fluids – Coolant and oil are important for long road trips if you intend on making it to your destination. Without them, a breakdown is likely to occur. You can check at home, at a dealership, or at a shop, but in any case, make sure all your fluids are topped off. Even if your fluids are fresh as can be, it’s never a bad idea to bring an extra bottle or two, just in case.
- Hydration – Driving while dehydrated can be dangerous, especially if you’re riding in a hot car. Make sure to bring plenty of bottled water to keep yourself refreshed!
- Cash Over Credit – Believe it or not, city slicker, not all small towns take credit cards. That’s why it’s essential you take some cash on your summer road trip. The last thing you want to do is run out of food or gas and have no cash on hand!
