Your Summer Road Trip Checklist

Spare Tire and Fluids.

Your tires may need to be replaced every 25,000 to 50,000 miles. If your car is approaching this, it may be time to get yours replaced. Keeping a good condition spare tire will also decrease your chance of being stuck on the side of the road. Checking your fluids is just as important. Radiator, brake, transmission, etc. are all essential fluids that will keep your working well. Make sure you bring your car in today for any of your vehicle needs. 


Brake Pads. 

Brake pads provide your car with the ability to stop in any situation. Brake pads can last vehicles anywhere from 25,000 miles to 70,000 miles. Over time these wear away with use and become too thin for use. Replacing your brake pads will make your road trip that much safer. Make sure you come into our shop to get yours repaired!

Air Conditioning Recharge.

Your air conditioning is always our best friend in the summertime. Inspect your air conditioning before you head out on your ride. Your A/C should perform the same way it did 5-10 years ago. If you notice the difference between then and now, you should consider getting your A/C recharged. At Tokyo Automotive, we want to make sure your road trip is comfortable. Stay cool and make sure you come in for service before you head out. 


Snacks and Beverages.

You never know when you’ll need a little pick me up. Having an emergency snack/beverage will be a huge help, especially if there is nowhere to pull over. Make sure you equip your car with all your favorites! We recommend a Slim Jim or two.
