How do you inspect a car before a trip? What should I check before my long drive? Should I change my oil before a long trip, even if I just changed it?
If you have, chances are high that you’re planning to hit the road soon. If this is the case, good for you!
However, many people don’t have the time to flip through their owner’s manual to make sure everything on their car is operating at 100%. To the average person, pre-trip checklists are daunting and time-consuming. At the same time, none of us want to deal with car troubles when we’re traveling.
This is where your local mechanic can pitch in. Colony One Auto Center has over 25 years of experience keeping the vehicles of Sugar Land, Stafford, Missouri City, and West Houston in peak, road-trip-ready condition. We’re here to get your car in tip-top shape, so you can spend more time focusing on your family and friends.
Here are just a few of the items Colony One Auto checks during our thorough pre-trip car inspection.
- Air filter
- Belts and hoses
- Brakes (including brake fluid)
- Cruise control
- Level and condition of your car’s fluids, including engine oil, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and more
- Tires (pressure and tread depth)
- Steering and suspension
Finally, a Colony One Auto mechanic will test drive your vehicle, so they can more readily pick up on any issues that may have remained hidden during the initial inspection.
This year, hit the road with confidence and peace of mind. Stop by Colony One Auto Center and receive the expert car care you deserve.
