The idea of cruising down the highway with the sun shining is embedded in the American landscape, and summer is the perfect time to take that road trip you’ve been daydreaming about. Picking your destination is a great start, but the team at our Hyundai dealership serving Alexandria knows that you need a bit more prep than that.
Check out our favorite tips to ensure smooth sailing this summer!
This might seem obvious, but knowing where you’re going is essential for an enjoyable trip. Try to keep the plan loose enough to stop and see the things that catch your eye, but still have a rough outline of the roads you’ll be taking along the way and any major stops you want to make.
On a related note, toss a map in the glove box just in case. GPS is certainly more up-to-date and interactive, but a map can be a lifesaver in a pinch. Just don’t ask us to help you fold it up again after you open it!
Car trouble on the road is the last thing you need during your adventure. At bare minimum, be sure to check your fluids and tire pressure before you depart; for a more comprehensive check, simply drop by our Alexandria area Hyundai service center to take advantage of the expertise of our certified technicians. No need for an appointment, just bring it in!
Check the weather before you go, and see what you can expect in the forecast. Knowing what sorts of wind will be blowing your way can help you avoid over-packing. Don’t forget to check at night, as well, to see how low the temperature dips after the sun sets.
By looking ahead for any major troubles like these, you can hit the road confidently to head toward your destination. For more tips and tricks, or if you prefer to schedule a service appointment before you go, be sure to contact Pohanka Hyundai online or to call our team at (301) 423-1100 today!
