Jiffy Lube® WILL GET YOUR CAR ROAD READY
It’s important to have a reliable form of transportation during the holidays. Whether you’re staying put, shopping for friends and family, or taking a spontaneous trip to another state, it’s important to ensure your vehicle is running smoothly.
Use a Smart Vehicle Checklist Developed by Jiffy Lube®
Making sure your vehicle is ready to hit the road is simpler than you might think. Use this checklist of simple questions to determine whether or not your vehicle is prepared for the new year to come. It’s a good idea to go over this checklist a couple of times to ensure you’re prepared.
Has Your Vehicle Received Regular and Timely Oil Changes This Year?
Not only should you make sure your vehicle has oil changes at regular intervals, but you should also consider how long it’s been since you last received an oil change. Timing is just as important as mileage. If it’s been a while, come in and see your local Jiffy Lube® team and let them take care of your car.
Do Your Vehicle’s Headlights Shine Bright and Clear?
This is an easy test. Pull up in front of your garage and shine your lights at the door. They should shine bright and offer great visibility. Check your high beams and make sure they are offering added visibility. If any of your lights need replacing, come see the Jiffy Lube® team today.
Do All of Your Tires Have the Correct Tread Depth and Pressure?
Another easy test that you can perform using a quarter and a tire pressure gauge. If the head of the president isn’t being touched or your tires don’t hold pressure, it’s time for a change. Bring your vehicle in and let Jiffy Lube® change your tires for you.
Is Your Vehicle’s Dashboard Free of All Service Warning Lights?
A service warning light isn’t something you should ignore, that’s especially true when you’re getting ready for a long trip. If any lights are warning you of service needs, bring your vehicle to Jiffy Lube® and let them help you take care of the issue.
Have Your Vehicle’s Battery Transmission, and Fuel Systems Been Checked Recently?
Most likely, if you haven’t had an oil change in a while, these items haven’t been checked either. Ask the Jiffy Lube® team to check them when they give you the oil change that’s going to give you the confidence you need during your holiday drive.
Are Your Vehicle Fluids Fully Topped Off?
You can do this on your own, but if you’re already coming to Jiffy Lube® for another service, this is something that’s done as part of a regular oil change. Let this team handle your fluid fill and give you the confidence you need on the road.
Does Your Vehicle Sound and Feel Like It’s Running Smoothly?
You may run into a rough start, a bit of a rough ride, or strange noises that don’t send off the warning lights on your dash. If any of these things are true, let the Jiffy Lube® team check your vehicle to see if you need to have service performed.
Once you go over this checklist and take care of all the issues, you can get through the holidays with confidence.
