Auto Road Service | Holiday Season Driving Series Part Two

A few things to check before you take a holiday road trip. Part two of a series.

Most holiday travelers are getting to their Thanksgiving dinners on the road this year, if not for the entire trip, then at some point in their journey. For the safest possible trip, here are a few more checkpoints from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

  • Check your oil levels and filters before you travel. If needed, make sure you have an oil change.
  • Make sure the heat in your car is operational.
  • Test the lights inside and outside your car. Clear snow, ice, or dirt from your lights if needed.
  • Check to make sure your defroster works – don’t forget your rear defroster if you have one.


In the final part of this series, we will look at checks that are best performed by professionals.
