Why a Trip Inspection Is a Good Idea

At John's Automotive Care we get a lot of San Diego drivers asking about vehicle trip preparation. That's a big deal. You could be driving through mountains and deserts in some pretty lonely areas around CA, so it's important to know that the vehicle is up to the task and won't leave you stranded.

Smart San Diego drivers plan ahead for a major road trip – and there are a lot of things to get ready. Where should you start? You could start with the tires. Look them over for tread wear and check to see that they are properly inflated. Take a quick test drive around San Diego to see if you can feel any vibrations: Are the wheels in balance? Is the car tracking straight? Is the alignment ok? Come to John's Automotive Care for a peace-of-mind trip inspection.

The next thing is a full service oil change to make sure all of your fluids are topped off and you have fresh oil for the trip. And if your car has over 75,000 miles/120,000 km, you may consider putting in the high-mileage formulation to clean harmful sludge deposits in the engine. 

How about your transmission and brakes? Have you had your transmission and brakes inspected in the last six months?

How are your wiper blades? There's nothing like not being able to get rid of the bug juice on a long road trip away from San Diego.

Check your owner's manual for any other recommended services, and have John's Automotive Care in San Diego do the multi-point inspection before you head out on your trip.

Consider also having the coolant system serviced at John's Automotive Care – you want to stay within the vehicle manufacture’s recommendations. If you're towing a trailer around CA you'll want to be keep in mind that you'll be going a long way under severe conditions.

A lot of San Diego drivers overlook severe conditions like towing, CA summer heat or driving on dirt roads. Plan ahead for your next road trip – John's Automotive Care wants you to get there and back.
