Summer is one of the most fun times to be out on the road. You want to make sure to be safe while you are out there so Kindle Auto Plaza has some great summer driving tips for you. Besides great car deals, the Kindle Auto Plaza also has a full service shop and body shop. Under the body shop tab, there are even more tips about ways to prepare for a summer road trip.
You definitely need to make sure that you have roadside essentials with you just in case of an emergency. You never know what might happen when you are on that family road trip. You also will want to check out some key parts on your car to make sure that they are in good working order, such as your radiator.
The other super important thing is to top of your fluids. These fluids include things like brake, automatic transmission, power steering, windshield washer and coolant. Making sure everything is in tip top shape will help make your trip go a lot more smoothly.
For some longer road trips, you will need to also check your tire pressure, battery life and also check to make sure your windshield wipers are in good working order. You will want to also make sure that all of your lights are in working order and of course your brakes are working.
These are easy things to check, but what if something goes wrong? You will need to have a pretty good roadside emergency kit. Every kit may have to be adjusted depending on circumstances but this is a pretty basic list to get you started:
Emergency flat tire repair and/or spare tire
Gloves, blankets and towels
Screwdrivers and wrenches
First aid kit
Cell phone and charger
Water for both the car radiator and your family
High-calorie, non-perishable food
