Get your car looked into before the trip
Even if you feel that your car was recently serviced, make sure that you leave no stone unturned in ensuring there no glitch prevails. You do not want your car to break down in the middle of a long journey, so better get it checked by a mechanic before you take off for your destination. Some of the things that you must check include engine oil, engine coolant, battery terminal, cables, etc. Make sure your fuel tank is filled.
