Summer Road Trip Tips

PLAN ON TAKING A ROAD TRIP SOON?

The sun is starting to come out and the kids are getting out of school, this could only mean one thing, FAMILY ROAD TRIPS! But before any road trips, a check up on your vehicle is essential, after all no one wants to be stranded on the side of the road in a town you're not familiar with. So to prevent such a catastrophe, Eurofed recommends services, beginning with a full multi-point inspection performed by one of our factory-certified technicians. Technicians provide a full assessment of the overall status of the vehicle and suggest necessary factory-scheduled services. 

Next is a vehicle alignment service that is performed with our state of the art Hunter Engineering equipment to make sure the vehicle’s suspension is in proper working order within manufacturers intended specifications. After all services have been performed on the vehicle our technicians will perform a reset on the service lights & set it to its next scheduled service interval.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG ON A CAR DURING A  ROAD TRIP?

During a road trip, there's a few things that could go wrong on the car, first the car could overheat related to coolant levels being low or having a coolant related issue. Second, the battery is a key component of your car's electrical system. If the connection breaks your car will stop working, even if it’s already running, so keep an eye on these components. Last but not least, tires are the only things touching the ground between you and your car, so you want to make sure you have plenty of tread before heading off into your road trip.


WHAT ALL NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT BEFORE A ROAD TRIP?
