Plan Accordingly for Your Next Road Trip

December 11th, 2017 by

Taking a road trip across one of America’s many highways has long been a beloved pastime for millions. So how do you prepare for your journey? Here at Capitol Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we care about the safety and well-being of our customers, so we decided to put together a helpful checklist of to-do items that might help in making sure that your road trip is a success.

For starters, make sure that your vehicle is roadworthy before heading out on your trip. Prior to leaving town, it is a great idea to bring your car, truck, or SUV in to see us here in Jefferson City, MO for a quick oil change and tire rotation. While we have it up on the rack, let us do a quick brake and fluid inspection to make sure that all systems go before you are out on the road.

Secondly, a little bit of pre-trip prep can be very helpful by planning your route ahead of time, and having a backup route in mind should you come across any unforeseen obstacles. Lastly, it is a good idea to make sure that you have a few ” just in case” items on hand. Jumper cables, a small set of tools, and some extra food and water stowed away can come in quite handy in a pinch. And if you are traveling in high elevation areas during the winter, a set of tire chains can get you out of a pinch if needed.
