If you’ve just had your vehicle serviced and have kept up with its maintenance, a quick check under the hood for any kinked or punctured hoses, frayed or cracked belts, and any low fluids will go a long way to make your trip safe and headache free.

Make sure all your car’s belts are in good condition and none are cracked, glazed, or frayed and check the coolant levels. Also remember to check your engine oil, brake and transmission fluid levels.
