When it comes to road trips many people forget about the things they need to do to their cars in order for it to be prepared for a long journey.
Tips on Preparing a Vehicle for a Road Trip:
Ensure that there is enough oil in the car, this should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Use the dipstick to check on how full it is already, not only this but people should take the oil with them if they think they might need it.
Also make sure that all the other fluids are checked for example, radiator fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid and more. By topping all these up before the road trip it often provides a peace of mind and prepares for the long journey.
Check on the air pressure and not that this needs checking around every 1,000 miles.
When it comes to general maintenance people should check that their light bulbs haven't burnt out and that they're replaced, check on the brake pads and replace in order for a safer journey.
Always check under the bonnet of the car, check on the belt and the hoses and always replace if something doesn't seem quite right.
