Traveling can be a stressful thing, especially during a time such as the holidays. Snow and ice can make travel more difficult, and it’s hard to avoid other holiday-related traffic. However, there can be just as much stress on your car, too, so use these tips from Wright Hyundai to get your vehicle ready to hit the road, whether you’re going near or far.
Protect the Exterior
Applying a coat of wax may seem like an unnecessary extra step, but it’s actually an excellent tool in protecting against damage from road salt and other debris. Chips to paint from gravel could eventually lead to rust, but an annual coat of wax can easily prevent this.
Prep Your Tires
Tires get the best traction when they’re in great condition and have the right amount of air in them, and you want all the traction you can get when you’re navigating through inclement weather. So, be sure to have your tires rotated and check for leaks or damage before you head out.
Protect the Interior
By applying a quick coat of Scotchgard and switching to all-season floor mats, you can get the cabin of your car ready for all of the snow and ice you’ll be bringing in.
Get an Oil Change
It’s always a good idea to get an oil change and a checkup before any road trip. Bring your Hyundai into Wright Hyundai and let us make sure your vehicles is set for winter travels.
