There’s no better time for a road trip than summer, but the last thing you want to do is have your car break down along the way. Avoid a car disaster that could derail your trip with some pre-journey planning. Start with your regular maintenance. If you’re overdue for an oil change, get one before you leave town. Top up all of your other fluids and take your car to the auto shop if your air conditioning seems to have lost some of its power. Check your tire pressure and schedule a rotation or car alignment if it has been a while since your last one.
