Hitting the Road this Summer? Be Sure to Review These Maintenance Tips!

Whether you're traveling out of Hagerstown for a long weekend by the beach, or are heading out on the open road outside of Waynesboro, PA for a family road trip, you want to be sure your vehicle is in its best condition. We've compiled a checklist of maintenance tips to consider before you hop on the interstate, so be sure to give it a look and book an appointment with our service center here at Hamilton Nissan.

Check Your Fluid Levels

The first consideration before you head out on a road trip is if your car needs an oil change. How frequently you need an oil change will be outlined in your owner's manual, but most cars will require a change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. This service is a little more involved than just adding more fluid to your Nissan, but when you book an appointment, our team can have you back on the road and headed out of Chambersburg, PA in no time.

Other fluids to check include coolant, brake fluid, windshield washer fluid, and more.

Be Sure Your Tires are Ready to Roll

Another primary concern when leaving Martinsburg, WV for a road trip, is if your tires are ready for the journey. First, you want to check the tread of your wheels, ensuring there is a depth of at least 2/32-inch. Any bald or flat spots are definite signs that it's time for new tires, or you increase your risk of being in an accident.

Once you've looked at your treads, you'll want to refer to your owner's manual to see what the ideal tire pressure is. Then, you'll want to measure the PSI of each tire, and make adjustments accordingly.
