Service For Long Road Trips | Grand Rapids, MI

Service For Long Trips 

Here in Michigan, we have a lot of natural beauty; however, that does not mean you won't ever need or want to leave the state. If you are planning a long road trip to visit the lower states, you need to make sure your car is ready. Here are six things you need to check on your car before you hit the road.

Engine

If your car is having any issues with performance, get these resolved before you head off on your trip.

Battery

Make sure your battery is fully charged. You also want to make sure the terminals are clean. You don't want a non-starting car to spoil your trip.

Tires

Check your tires to make sure they have more than adequate tread depth. Since you will be putting a lot of miles under your tires, you want them to be better than average. Also look for signs of bulges or tears in the tire sidewalls and make sure your tires are properly inflated.

Brakes

You want to be sure your brakes have enough life left in them to get you through your trip-especially if you will be driving through any up and down hilly areas.

Lights

Check all of your exterior lights to make sure none of the bulbs are dead. In addition, make sure they are all angled properly and the lenses are clear.

Wipers

You should replace your windshield wipers about every six months. If they are leaving streaks, stuttering across your windshield, or have cracks, it is time to replace them.

Here at Berger Chevy, we want to make sure you next road trip is safe and successful. Schedule a service appointment today and we can take care of all of these things for you to make sure your car is ready for the long haul.
