Summer is almost here, and for many of us, that means setting out on a road trip with the family. Before you take to the road, you will want to prepare your Porsche to meet the demands of driving for long hours in hot weather. Here are a few tips on how to prepare your luxury vehicle for summer road trips.
- Perform simple maintenance checks on your vehicle: Before packing up your vehicle and setting out, you will want to check your car’s oil and fluid levels, including power steering fluid, windshield wiper fluid, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant. You should also check your tires and make sure they’re appropriately inflated and have adequate tread depth, as good tires help keep you confident, in control, and safe while on the go.
- Check your car’s air conditioning system: Nothing is worse than being stuck in a stuffy, hot vehicle for long hours, so you will want to thoroughly check your car’s air conditioning system before setting out.
- Clean out the interior, pack charging cords, and have music/entertainment options on hand: You will want to clean out your car’s interior and make sure you have all the charging cords to keep everyone’s devices charged up while on the road. You should also think about what entertainment options you will want to be available to you while on the trip, including downloading your favorite music playlists, podcasts, and your family’s favorite movies if you have a rear seat entertainment system.
There are few feelings better than hitting the open road in the summertime, particularly when you do so at the wheel of a Porsche or Volkswagen vehicle. To set yourself up for maximum summer fun, stop into Gossett VW Porsche and set up your test drive.
