Preparation Is Key for A Great Road Trip

If you are getting ready to head out on a road trip, you probably already have a checklist going with "to-do" items. You will be packing your luggage, maybe some snacks or picnic gear. But before you head out on the open road, consider doing just a few more things in preparation.

Make sure that you have your route planned out ahead. There is nothing quite like getting lost to put a damper on your trip, so having a clear idea of where you are going and how you are getting there can be very helpful. And just in case you get in an area with spotty cell phone coverage, it is also a good idea to have your directions printed out and stashed away just in case you need them.

One of the most important things that you can do before you leave is to bring your vehicle into our service department here at Capitol Toyota and have our qualified technicians do an oil change and tire rotation for you. While we have it up on the rack, let us do a fluid top off and brake inspection as well. This helps to ensure that all of the critical systems on your car, truck, or SUV are in tip-top shape before you head out on your trip.
