holiday travel

The holidays are coming up, and it’s the perfect time to get your vehicle ready for those long, holiday road trips. From up-to-date maintenance to emergency kits, you should be prepared for whatever the road brings you.

First, make sure that your car, truck or SUV is properly maintained. Top off your fluids and make sure that your windshield wipers and car lights are working. Be sure to also check that your tires are properly filled and your brakes are working properly.

After checking that your car is in tip-top shape, it’s a good idea to map out your route. Take into account what areas you will be traveling through and note where the best places to stop for rest or fuel are. Be sure to also have roadside assistance contact information ready in case of an emergency.

Finally, be prepared! Pack an emergency kit with jumper cables, basic tools, flares, a cell phone charger, drinking water, a flashlight and first aid items. Don’t forget to also pack anything that might make the long ride more enjoyable — blankets, pillows, snacks, and car-friendly games for passengers.

Have a festive and safe road trip! Contact Clint Bowyer Autoplex in Emporia, Kansas for any last minute checks or tune-ups at 620-343-6723 or schedule service online here.
