It seems like the holiday season is officially here! Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away, temperatures are starting to drop, and holiday-themed festivities like the Toyota of Clermont Turkey Trot are just around the corner. If you’re planning on heading out on the highway this holiday season to do any travelling, then you can’t start prepping your car or getting it ready for the road too soon. We’ve complied some holiday driving tips at our Toyota dealership near Orlando so that drivers can quickly and easily get ready for the road trips they have planned.
Prep your new Toyota near Orlando for a road trip!
Even though school hasn’t let out for holiday vacation yet, no doubt parents, students, and entire families are already getting revved up for the exciting family trips that are bound to take place. In the midst of all the planning, don’t forget to make sure your car is ready for the journey you’re about to go on! Some simple tips and preparation before the big travel day can help provide some reassurance and eliminate some items on the to-do list.
• Auto service: Even if you stay on top of regular auto service near Orlando, it’s always a good idea to get your vehicle checked out before you take it on a long road trip. If a major repair needs to place, or even a minor adjustment, you don’t want to learn about it before it’s too late to get it taken care of, or be stranded on the side of the highway waiting for a tow truck. Make sure you schedule an auto service appointment for your new Toyota a few weeks before the vacation starts to get some peace of mind!
• Tires: Can you remember the last time you checked the tread or air pressure on your tires? These are important details that need to be examined before hitting the highway. You don’t even have to schedule a service appointment to check these features; they can be examined while your car is parked in your driveway! If you have any questions, though, don’t hesitate to bring your new Toyota by our Service Department.
• Glove compartment: Do you have all the papers and supplies you need already in your car? Make sure the owner’s manual and registration is in the car, and double-check to make sure an emergency kit is also present. These small details may not seem that important now, but they become extremely important when you’re on the road and need them!
Have fun this holiday while on the road!
Travelling during the holidays doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. A little bit of preparation can go far to make sure you and your passengers arrive at your destination safely and with no headaches.
