Summer Driving and Getting Ready for the Road

Memorial Day is behind us, and with it, some driving weather that wasn’t nearly as hot as it could have been. But some hot days might be coming soon, and, if you’re going to be on the road for them, you’ll want to be ready.

Now is the time to start pre-summer checkups on your car’s hardware, so that when the time comes to roll out, you’ll be cruising and cool. And AAA agrees.

Staying on top of car maintenance is a smart way to save yourself time, money and headaches when you’re adventuring on the road this summer. Simple steps, some of which may take no more than a couple of minutes, could mean the difference between a road trip to remember and a breakdown that you’d rather forget.

So take the time to check off the items on the list in the infographic below before you take off. That way, your journeys to and from parts unknown will be successful.
