Are you planning to go “Over the river and through the woods” this holiday season? All too many travelers are forced to return home or to an unknown repair shop for repairs. Car trouble, usually due to neglected preventative maintenance, can bring an abrupt end to holiday plans. The situation usually means more than just a repair bill. It can involve towing charges, lodging, and possibly a rental car. Not only can this become expensive, it can ruin all your holiday fun.
This scenario could be avoided with a pre-trip inspection performed by a qualified automotive technician. This “physical” for your vehicle should address the following systems:
• Engine Cooling
• Emission Control
• Steering and Suspension
• Electrical and Ignition
In addition, the technician should evaluate engine performance, tire condition, heater/defroster, and windshield wipers. A reputable repair shop will evaluate the condition of the systems and make recommendations to you on what your vehicle needs to operate reliably throughout your travels.
Not only can a “Holiday Travel Checkup” help reduce the chances of costly and possibly dangerous road trouble, it also provides you an opportunity to have repairs made close to home with a technician whom you feel comfortable with before trouble strikes. Most importantly, it provides you with peace of mind. While no inspection can guarantee a car's performance, it's comforting to know that proper precautions have been taken.
