For a road trip first and foremost comes the vehicle. The vehicle has to be in the perfect condition to traverse the journey to and fro.

Here is a small checklist for your vehicle. What areย you waiting for? Let’s get starting

๐Ÿš—ย Vehicle Functioning :
  • Check all the parts of the vehicle if they are in working condition without slightest of issues. The Clutch and Brakes especially.
  • The mirrors are intact and rotating.
  • The car wipers are functioning properly.
  • The AC and heater both are working without any hassles.
  • All the locks in the car are serving their purpose.
๐Ÿš—ย Fuel and Oil:

Check the motor oil levels and make the necessary changes if required. Never ever experiment with the fuel at the time of travel, go with the regular one which you have been using always for your car. If the Air Coolant needs to be added, then do the same especially for places with the hot sun you would need it.

๐Ÿš—ย The emission systems, battery and lubrication these need to be checked too!

๐Ÿš—ย All the lights in the car are functioning properly, this is vital.โš ๏ธ
