Prepare a Checklist Before Holiday Travel

Before you load up your vehicle to go on holiday, always remember car maintenance before you leave. Begin with a basic oil change a couple of days before you actually leave. This ensures that your oil is fresh and will lubricate your engine properly. Most service centers will provide a quick tire rotation to accompany the oil change. If this is not displayed, ask if it is included in the price.

Generally, service centers will offer a quick checklist for you. This checklist includes checking your fluids and coolant, topping off any that are low, checking tire condition, current air pressure, the condition of brake pads, etc. They will provide you with this list as you check out and go over anything that caught their attention. They will also notify you of anything they noticed that is a hazard or just unsafe. All of this is normally included in a basic oil change.
