Should I have my car inspected before a long road trip?

Before you hit the open road on your summer road trip, you'll want to make sure your car is in tip-top shape. After all, you don't want to end up stranded on the side of the highway with a flat tire or a broken-down engine. Here are a few things you should do to get your car ready for a long road trip: 1. Check your oil level and change it if necessary. The oil is what lubricates your engine, so it's important to keep it at the correct level. If it's too low, your engine could overheat. Check your car's owner's manual to see how often you should change your oil. 2. Check your tire pressure and tread depth. Under-inflated tires can lead to a blowout, and worn-out tires will decrease your traction, which could be dangerous if you're driving in bad weather conditions. Use a tire pressure gauge to check that each of your tires is inflated to the correct level. You can find the recommended tire pressure for your car in the owner's manual or on a sticker ... read more
