Now that the stores are starting to play holiday music, get ready for more holiday travel! With Christmas coming up, you’ll need to make sure your family vehicles are ready to safely drive over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house.
Here are five things you can do to make sure your family is ready to safely travel to see family and friends this holiday season:
Brakes are super important for safety. Be sure your brake pads, rotors, and calipers are in great condition before you begin your road trip. You’ll never know what kind of heavy traffic and weather-related road conditions you’ll encounter while traveling during the holidays.
Windshield Wiper Replacement
If you cannot see clearly out of your windshield, your compromised visibility can be dangerous. Make driving more pleasant by replacing old windshield wipers that skip or smear or show signs of wear.
Your cabin filters help reduce allergens inside the car, while fuel filters and engine air filters help your engine be more fuel efficient. Filters are often overlooked, so get your filters checked to make sure they’re not clogged with debris.
Fluid Change Service
Just like we need to drink water to keep our bodies hydrated, your vehicle needs clean fluids to operate at its best. Synthetic oil tends to last longer than regular oil. Plus, your car needs windshield wiper fluid, radiator fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and more. Check with the team at Premier Automotive Services to get advice on the best fluid exchange options for your vehicle before you begin your holiday travels.
If you use your vehicle to add juice to your phones, mobile devices, camping equipment, and more, you could be shortening the life of your car battery. Before your holiday road trip, come to Premier Automotive Services to find out if your battery needs replacement. It’ll save you the trouble of jump-starting your car while away from the comforts of home.
For best service, schedule an appointment with Ponder Auto Repair with plenty of time before your holiday road trip. We are a locally owned business located at 915 West Market Street in Johnson City. We look forward to seeing you soon this holiday season!
