Road Trip Checklist

Road trips are a lot of fun, and often unpredictable. With this checklist from Dave Mays Automotive in Gainesville, you’ll be prepared for whatever comes your way.

Keep some essential tools in your car, such as a socket set and some screwdrivers. Often, an easy fix can cause a world of trouble, without the tools to deal with it.

Be sure your spare is aired up, and all the tools to change a tire are in the vehicle. Most likely, you don’t check the tire pressure on your spare often, and it won’t do you much good if it’s flat when you need it. Most vehicles come equipped with a jack and a tire iron - check to make sure yours haven’t been lost over the years.

Keep emergency items like blankets, flashlights, and jumper cables in the vehicle. You probably won’t need them, but you’ll feel better knowing they’re there.

Clean your windshield. You might not have noticed how dirty it is, until you have to stare through it for several hours. Trust us, a clean windshield makes the trip far more enjoyable.

Inspect your fluid levels, tire condition, and take care of any issues before you leave. If you know there’s something wrong with your car, don’t assume it’ll make it. Has it repaired before setting off? It’s also never a bad idea to have your vehicle inspected before hitting the road.

For an inspection, maintenance, or repair, stop by Dave Mays Automotive before you start your journey. Our expert mechanics will make sure your car, truck, or SUV is road ready and reliable, and you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing there’ll be no hiccups along the way. Call or visit us today.
