Tips For Getting Your Car Ready For a Road Trip

The winter is finally in our rearview mirrors, spring is here, and that means one thing -- road trips! Whether it's a spontaneous and leisurely Sunday drive with the top down, or a thoroughly planned and extensive interstate road trip, you want your Subaru to be prepared for the rigors of the road.

At Piazza Subaru, the premier car dealership in Montgomery County, we want your car to be road trip ready. So before you slide on the driving gloves and don the sunglasses, let's examine a few ways to keep your vehicle ready to roll the streets.


Address Your Lubricants

A simple way to make a positive impact on your Subaru is to address the lubricants that are vital to keeping it running smoothly and efficiently. Engines are comprised of many components that can begin to deteriorate over time from the wear and tear of driving. Keeping your oil changed and fluids filled at Piazza Subaru can help protect these components and also provide you with better fuel economy as well.


Check Your Tire Pressure

While a knocking sound in your engine or a cloud of smoke billowing from under your hood is a clear indicator that something's wrong with your car, poorly inflated tires are more of a silent killer. When under-inflated, your tires force engines to work harder which increases unnecessary wear for them and their components.

This can also create an adverse effect on fuel economy as well, which reduces overall performance. Keeping your tires properly inflated is an easy and straightforward way to get your car road-ready for those relaxing Sunday drives.


Stick To Your Maintenance Schedule

Routinely bringing your vehicle to Piazza Subaru for scheduled maintenance and service is crucial to prevent significant breakdowns and other issues that your automobile may encounter during your road trip. This can include checking air filters, A/C systems, brakes, electricals, and batteries to prevent potential future problems with your car and ensure a safe and smooth trip.

At Piazza Subaru, we want you to focus on the primary function of a road trip -- enjoying the open road and all the attractions it has to offer. We are the area's premier Subaru dealer and provider of official Subaru car parts.
