Getting Your Car Ready For Holiday TravelThe holidays are here, and you may be getting ready to travel. Whether you are traveling 10s of miles or 1000s of miles, if you travel by car, you should make sure that your car is ready to make the journey safely. The last thing you need is to get stuck with a dead battery, a flat tire or a broken-down vehicle when you are miles away from home and lots of businesses are closed for the holidays. Bring your vehicle to Clark Automotive and we will complete our winter maintenance checklist for you so that you can be confident that your car will not interfere with your upcoming holiday travel plans.

Before you hit the road, you want to make sure that the following systems are working as they should:

Tires: We can inspect your tires for any signs of tread damage or excessive wear and tear that might be a problem for you on an extended trip. We complete tire repair, tire rotation and tire replacement depending on the service that you need. No one wants a flat or blown out tire on a road trip!

Battery: The staff at Clark Automotive can also test your battery to ensure that it is working properly and that it is not time for a replacement. This will ensure that you will not have to deal with a car that does not start. A new battery is a relatively inexpensive issue to fix.

Brakes: Your brakes may be the most important safety feature of your car. They are what allows you to stop when needed. If you are concerned about your brakes or have noticed any break noises, always get your brakes checked before any extended trip. Our brake work includes replacing brake pads, wheel bearings, lubricating backing plates and calipers, topping off or flushing brake fluid, checking the hydraulic system and repairing the drums and rotors.
