As winter winds down, many people are planning to take road trips for spring break. Though meant to be fun after a long winter, road trips can easily turn into a disaster if drivers are caught off guard by late winter storms or if they have a break down that could have been prevented.
Before drivers take off on an end of winter road trip, Gavin Heathcock, Director of Business Development and Sales for online car parts retailer Automotix, recommends they do some prevent maintenance. Checking that all the lights work and their covers are cleared is important, as well as checking the status of the brakes and replacing worn out wipers.
He suggests auto owners have a professional mechanic look over the vehicle to for other repairs that may be needed.
For drivers insistent on doing their own repairs, Automotix has DIY repair manuals and rebuilt transmissions are designed for easy installation. Used engines and transmissions also have an one year warranty and a 90 day price match.
Heathcock states, “Some people have gone all winter without having their vehicle maintenanced for one reason or another. It’s dangerous to neglect your car like that.”
Drivers should also be vigilant of the weather for the area they will be driving through. Many parts of the country still have strong ice storms through late February and early March. Owners should double check that they have appropriate tires for the weather they may encounter and adjust their driving habits accordingly.
