Things You Need to Check Right Now Before That Memorial Day Weekend Trip
MIAMISBURG -- We are now just a couple weeks away from the unofficial kick off to the summer travel season. We all know the importance of Winter maintenance, but summer maintenance is also crucial.
"We check the oil, check the tires," said Jim Yoder from Tiffin, Ohio. "I finally gave it a wash."
Two weeks from now the highways will be carrying 36 million travelers for Memorial Day weekend.
"We're gonna take a trip to Florida," said Yoder.
"A long 20 hour drive," said Kim Jones who will also be traveling to Florida this summer.
And whether you're going somewhere that weekend or just looking forward to a summer road trip, now is the time to get that car ready.
"I have to get an oil change," said Jones. "Probably this week."
"If you're close to an oil change, go ahead and get that done. Make sure you have a clean air filter so we get proper fuel mileage," said "AAA tire and auto assistant manager Jason Brown. "This time of year the air filters in vehicles for people with allergies could be very crucial in helping to relieve allergy related symptoms."
Brown says preventative maintenance is your car's best friend.
"I think probably the most important thing that I've seen the past 20 years is a lot of folks don't set the time in advance to get their cars checked out," he said. "They wait until the day before they're leaving and then a lot of times problems are found and there isn't enough time to prepare the people."
"I know what I got on right now, they're due, so I'll have to get those fixed," said Yoder about his tires.
"The important thing before you get on the road, check your tire pressure," said Brown. "Check it when it's cold. Check your tire tread depth. Checking your fluid is important. Belts and hoses also. Check. air-conditioning. Batteries. Lights. Also after all the potholes you've hit this winter, make sure the sidewall of your tires are not damaged."
