How Should I Prepare My Subaru for a Road Trip?

Answers to your service questions

Before heading on a road trip, it's a good idea to go through a checklist of basic services to make sure your vehicle is ready for the road ahead. Of course, one of the most important things to do is to bring your Subaru in for an inspection. When you tell one of our service specialists that you're taking a road trip, they'll be sure to check and see that your vehicle is up to date on important systems like the oil, the brake system, the transmission and differential fluids, coolant, and more. They can also inspect your tires to make sure there's a safe amount of tread. These are important ways to help prevent unwanted trouble hundreds of miles away--and they're all relatively simple, as well! When it comes to the technical aspect of road trip preparation, the experts at Carlsen Subaru are glad to help. Of course, there's more to plan when it comes to road trips.

Other Steps for a Smoother Road Trip

Being over-prepared is almost always preferable to being underprepared--and this is especially true when you're going to be travelling far from home. It's smart to keep an emergency roadside kit and a first aid kit in your vehicle, particularly when it comes to road trips. Careful packing is also important; if you bring too much along with you, you risk weighing your vehicle down too much. This can cause decreased efficiency and unnecessary wear, so be sure to check your Subaru vehicle's carrying capacity. And when you're traveling with kids, make sure that they have enough to keep them occupied during the long journey ahead. In fact, it's a good idea to bring enough drinks and snacks for everybody in the car.
