It is important to keep your import auto in good running condition at all times, but you want to be especially vigilant just before a road trip. While you have a mechanic you can trust here at home, you might be hard pressed to find one that deals with your specific import auto while you are on the road. To make sure that you are in good shape for your road trip, make sure you get your vehicle serviced for at least these three things before you go.
You should make sure that your brakes are in good working condition and not likely to fail while you are gone. You should have a mechanic measure the depth left on brake pads, check the brake fluid, and make sure there are no leaks or other issues.
Wheels, Axles, and Tires
You want to make sure that your mechanic checks out your wheels, axles, tires, and all the parts that help your vehicle actually move. You should make sure that you have good tread depth left on your tires, that they are wearing evenly, and that there are no bulges or showing of wear around the wall of the tires.
Cooling and Heating System
Depending on the time of year and your destination, you will want to make sure that your cooling or heating system is working correctly. You also want to make sure that your car is cooling itself and the radiator is working properly. Making sure that your vehicle will not overheat while you are driving it hard for many miles at once is really important.
