When you are planning a road trip for the holidays, do you make a checklist of things to have checked on your car before leaving? If not, you may want to add this planning tool to your routine! The checklist will help you to avoid a breakdown when on the road, no matter if it's only 100 miles or 1,000 miles away.

Shorter road trips are less intense and call for far less things to be repaired, but the longer trips will need to have a checklist performed before leaving. Your pre-road trip checklist should include the checking of all fluids in the car. You will want to make sure there is enough oil in the car, transmission fluid and coolant. You will also need to check the wipers in case it starts raining or snowing while traveling. You will also want to make sure there is enough air in the tires and that your spare tire is full, in case you need a tire. Check all of these things prior to leaving for your trip.

If you want to have your car, truck or SUV checked by a team of auto service professionals, stop by our dealership in Puyallup, WA soon!
