Heading Off to College? Three Tips to Make Sure Your Car is Ready

 In Auto Glass, Driving Tips, Tips

Each day, your car easily takes you where you need to go. Heading to work or your friend’s house, running errands, or heading to the gym.

Your car is a dependable machine, so it comes as no surprise that you want to use it as you head off to college. Whether you’re leaving the state or heading to the U of M, you expect your car to be as reliable as it’s ever been.

Before you hit the road, however, it is advisable to double-check your car’s maintenance. Below is a list of tips to make sure your car is ready.

Tire check: Check your tire pressure and condition. If the treads are too worn, you may need to replace your tires. If your tires are in good condition, you may need to adjust the air pressure and have the tires rotated if necessary.

Fluid check: Have a mechanic check the fluids in your car so that it can drive smoothly and not break down. These fluids include oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, antifreeze, brake fluid, and windshield washer fluid.

Windshield check: Due to our roads, many Minnesotans deal with chipped or cracked windshields. Whenever you have an existing chip in your windshield you run the risk of that chip becoming a major driving distraction, or even worse, having that chip turn into a crack that puts your entire windshield at risk. Getting your cracked windshield replaced is a proactive step towards keeping you and your friends safe.

When there is a chip or crack present in the windshield, the driver and passengers are less protected because the integrity of the windshield has been compromised. Also, depending on where the damage is to the windshield, a driver’s view may be obstructed creating unsafe driving visibility.
