Prestige Vehicle Repairs tips for long journeys

Preparing for a long road trip? Regardless of your destination, you know your car will be put to the test.

Here we have provided some helpful steps you can take to prepare your vehicle for the journey ahead:

• Inspect your tyres.
Do you have enough tread on each tire? How is the tyre pressure? If there is something wrong with even one tyre it could cause disaster during your road trip. From a blowout to a flat tyre, you are taking a big risk and could put yourself in possible danger.

• Check the fluids.
Checking the oil, coolant, brake, and wiper fluids can help you avoid any unnecessary maintenance issues. Pop in and we can check them over for you and top up any fluids that are running low if you are unsure of how to do this yourself.

• Are your brakes in good condition?
While every aspect of your vehicle is crucial to its performance, there are not many details more important than the brakes. We can carry out any work needed on your brakes to ensure that your car is safe and reliable.

• Wash your car.
This may seem like an odd point to make as your car is likely to get dirty again, but there are benefits. For example, this will remove any grime and debris from the windows, allowing you to clearly see the road around you and to help you drive safely.

• Book in for a checkup.
When our experienced technicians look over your car before your trip, you can be rest assured that everything will be in good working condition. If anything is found to be wrong with your car, arrange an appointment with us to make any necessary repairs before you get behind the wheel.

With these little tips in mind, preparing your car for a long road trip can be a quick and simple process. With the help of our team here at Prestige Vehicle Repairs, we can give you peace of mind before embarking on your journey.
