You’ve heard the saying about, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? This also holds true for your vehicle. A little car maintenance can save you time on your upcoming road trip for the holidays. Car trouble on the road during holiday travel can turn a great trip into an unpleasant one in a hurry.
Plan early to schedule an appointment with our Key Scales Ford Service Department. Below are suggestions for items to check before your hit the road. Some of these things you can check on your own, but be sure to have your scheduled maintenance taken care of by a trained service technician.
Before you travel:
• Check tire pressure and tread depth
• Ensure that your flat tire replacement and jack are in good order
• Check and/or replace wiper blades
• Fill windshield washer fluid reservoir
(if you are traveling to colder weather, be sure you have antifreeze in your fluid)
• Test your car battery
• Have breaks checked
Do not take the risk of having to use an unknown automotive service department or worse yet, not finding one open on the holiday. Plan ahead – get your car ready! Keeping up with scheduled maintenance protects the longevity of your vehicle and also helps keep your car in tip top shape.
