Long journeys at highway speeds can put greater stress on your vehicle, and even cause major mechanical problems if your vehicle isn't up to the task. It's a good idea to bring your Subaru to our service department for a multi-point inspection and ensure your car is ready to hit the open road. We'll check all the systems of your engine and chassis, ensuring they're ready for the additional heat and stress of your next family road trip, weekend getaway or whatever calls you to the interstate. There are even some practical things you can do at home to make sure your vehicle is in good shape before you embark.

More Info - Your Pre Road Trip Checklist

Assuming your car is driving well, no warning lights are illuminated in the dash and you're up to date on regular maintenance, here are a few extra things to look at in your vehicle. First, inspect your tires, ensuring they're properly inflated with enough tread to handle inclement weather and rough road surfaces you may encounter. Next, check your fluids, topping off washer fluid and changing the oil as necessary. Finally, examine your filters, hoses and belts to ensure they're ready for the journey ahead. If any of these components are close to failure, it's could occur on your road trip - and could leave you stranded. If you encounter any question marks, be sure to schedule a visit to our service department. We'll have you safely on your way in no time!
