Audi Road Trip!

Summer is practically over, so if you haven’t already, it’s time for a summer adventure! You’ve read through a million tourism websites and have decided where you want to go.  Now you need to think about the vehicle that will take you on that adventure, after all, if the car breaks down, all your careful planning could go out the window.

Have a technician look at your vehicle  before any long distance trip:

  • MOST IMPORTANT – Change your oil and filter regularly, not just when you’re going through a road trip checklist.  It’s a quick, inexpensive process that can literally add years and thousands of miles to the efficient service life of your engine.
  • Check tire pressure regularly (preferably before driving, while they’re cold). Go by the manufacturer’s recommended settings in the owner’s manual or door sticker.  Have the wheels aligned for better handling, tire wear and safety.

Check your spare tire and make sure your car jack and all parts are in the vehicle.

Put together an emergency kit.  At the very least you should have:

  • bottled water, granola  bars or other non-perishable food
  • flashlight and batteries (not just your lighter or your smart phone app!),
  • basic first aid kit (one you put together yourself, or a pre-made kit from the pharmacy)

Bring a spare set of car keys.  Locking the only set of keys in the car can take the fun out of any holiday, fast.

Be sure you have valid proof of insurance in the car with you. And if your policy doesn’t include roadside assistance, consider adding it through your carrier or through a motor club like CAA.

Now that the not so much fun stuff is taken care of, you can head out onto the open road, knowing you’re ready to face whatever your adventure has to throw your way!
