Before you pack up the car to head home for the holidays, Twin Lakes Auto Service would like to remind you to make sure your vehicle is ready for the journey. Scheduling a thorough vehicle inspection with us will help you avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down miles away from home.
It is easy to remember to get your family ready for the holiday festivities, but what about preparing the car that’s going to get you there? Having a pre-inspection performed on your car will give you peace of mind as you travel and help make your journey safer.
Before leaving home, we recommend a check of the following, often overlooked, items: tires and tire pressure, brakes, hoses and belts, air filters, wipers, exterior and interior lighting, and fluid levels, including engine oil, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
A pre-trip inspection provides the opportunity to have service repairs made in Prescott by a trusted auto repair shop like Twin Lakes Auto Service, technicians who know many vehicle makes and models, which helps reduce the chance of costly and dangerous trouble on the road.
We also recommend that drivers keep important telephone numbers in their cell phone or glove box in case of a breakdown or travel emergency. Vehicles should have a roadside emergency kit that includes items such as a first aid kit, a tire-changing jack, a tire pressure gauge, jumper cables, a flashlight and a blanket. A copy of a recently-updated car guide can also be kept in the glove box and can be ordered online.
Twin Lakes Auto Service wishes you a happy and safe holiday driving, and invites you to contact us for any vehicle maintenance before your big trip!
