At Central Florida Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are committed to helping you find a car that you love and keeping that car running smoothly on the road. If you’re hoping to take advantage of the tail end of summer by going on a road trip, you should first consider the necessary steps to check your vehicle before hitting the pavement.

One of the best things to do during the summer break is to take advantage of the free time and head out on a summer road trip. Although, many road-trippers make the unfortunate mistake of not checking their vehicle first.

Before you take to the open road, you should first take your car to a car service center, or the service department of a new or used car dealership. These skilled auto technicians can help you inspect your vehicle from trunk to hood to make sure you’ll be safe on the road.

Even after you’ve had a mechanic evaluate your car, you should check for things like the condition of your tires, your coolant levels, any busted headlights, and your oil levels. If any of these aspects of your car are in poor condition, you could run the risk of getting stuck on the side of the road.

Alternatively, you can’t always predict when an accident may strike. So in that case, it is wise to bring a self-packed roadside survival kit including a hammer, a flashlight, a set of tools, jumper cables, and a chain or thick towing rope. Any of this equipment can get you out of a bind if worst comes to worst.

At Central Florida Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, our fully equipped service center can help you inspect every technical detail of your car, and perform the necessary repairs to bring your vehicle back up to tip-top shape.
