How Can You Prepare for a Road Trip?

Spring break and upcoming summer vacations seem to be at the top of our minds lately, as Pennsylvania drivers consider the impact of warmer air and sunshine coming our way. Whether you decide to load up gear and explore with friends or family, your next road trip can be a huge success with the right amount of prep work. What do you need to do to get your car ready for a road trip? Consider the following tips from our team!

  • Map your route before you get in your car, paying attention to rest stops, gas stations, and points of interest along the way.
  • Download an app that can re-route you in case you encounter unexpected heavy traffic. You also need a paper map in case you don't have service at any point in your journey.
  • Make sure you have all the things you need for an emergency stop, including a spare tire, jack, tool kit, lug wrench, jumper cables, and extra snacks.

Before you embark on the trip of your lifetime, make sure you bring your vehicle to our car repair center here at State College Motors and let us perform any maintenance you may need, including an oil change, brake inspection or repair, tire rotation, and anything else you need for peace of mind.
