    Be Car Care Aware

    Vacations are stressful enough without having to worry about your vehicle making it to your destination. The Car Care Council recommends that before hitting the road you take a little time to have your vehicle thoroughly inspected to make sure it is road ready.

    "The last thing anyone wants … is to break down miles from home in the middle of nowhere," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "It's always a wise idea to have your vehicle checked out before you leave home to identify any potential problems that can be serviced before your journey."

    The non-profit Car Care Council suggests a pre-trip check of the following items on your vehicle to help ensure a safe road trip: tires and tire pressure, brakes, hoses and belts, air filters, wipers, exterior and interior lighting, and fluid levels, including engine oil, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

    "A pre-trip inspection will not only make sure your vehicle is running right, but it will also help make the trip a lot less stressful," continued White. "Whether you do it yourself or visit a trusted neighborhood technician, being car care aware before you leave home will help you relax and enjoy the ride to your destination without the worry of unexpected, costly car trouble."

    As a precaution, the Car Care Council recommends that drivers keep important telephone numbers in their cell phone or glove box in case of a travel emergency. Vehicles should have a roadside emergency kit that includes a first aid kit, tire-changing jack, tire pressure gauge, jumper cables, flashlight and blankets. A copy of the council's 80-page Car Care Guide should be kept in the glove box as a reference and can be ordered free-of-charge.
