Why a Trip Inspection Is a Good Idea

Posted March 8, 2020 12:16 PM

At D.C. Auto we get a lot of Suwanee drivers asking about vehicle trip preparation. That's a big deal. You could be driving through mountains and deserts in some pretty lonely areas around GA, so it's important to know that the vehicle is up to the task and won't leave you stranded.

Smart Suwanee drivers plan ahead for a major road trip – and there are a lot of things to get ready. Where should you start? You could start with the tires. Look them over for tread wear and check to see that they are properly inflated. Take a quick test drive around Suwanee to see if you can feel any vibrations: Are the wheels in balance? Is the car tracking straight? Is the alignment ok? Come to D.C. Auto for a peace-of-mind trip inspection.

The next thing is a full service oil change to make sure all of your fluids are topped off and you have fresh oil for the trip. And if your car has over 75,000 miles/120,000 km, you may consider putting in the high-mileage formulation to clean harmful sludge deposits in the engine. 

How about your transmission and brakes? Have you had your transmission and brakes inspected in the last six months?

How are your wiper blades? There's nothing like not being able to get rid of the bug juice on a long road trip away from Suwanee.

Check your owner's manual for any other recommended services, and have D.C. Auto in Suwanee do the multi-point inspection before you head out on your trip.

Consider also having the coolant system serviced at D.C. Auto – you want to stay within the vehicle manufacture’s recommendations. If you're towing a trailer around GA you'll want to be keep in mind that you'll be going a long way under severe conditions.

A lot of Suwanee drivers overlook severe conditions like towing, GA summer heat or driving on dirt roads. Plan ahead for your next road trip – D.C. Auto wants you to get there and back.

They answered all of my questions and gave me great prices. I don't even live in this area but I'll be coming back here from now on. (They can come off as a bit rude, but they're just being honest.)
