How Should I Prepare My Subaru for a Long Road Trip?

Answers to your service questions

There's nothing quite like a road trip--and with their combination of space, comfort, longevity, and capability, Subaru vehicles are the perfect companions for long journeys. An important part of enjoying a road trip is making sure your vehicle is prepared for long-distance traveling. Bringing it to an authorized Subaru dealership like Nate Wade Subaru is a great way to start. Tell our technicians that you're headed on a road trip, and they'll know just what to do. They'll perform an inspection of vital systems and components in your Subaru, including the brake system, the oil level, and various fluid levels. If they see anything that requires attention, they'll let you know so that you can have it taken care of. If not, you can drive away confidently.

What Other Considerations Are Important in Preparing for a Road Trip?

Making sure your Subaru is ready mechanically is only one part of the process, of course. Just as important is making sure it has everything you need for any eventuality. We recommend purchasing a first aid kit and an emergency roadside kit if you don't already have these. Plan for the environment you're visiting by bringing extra water for hotter climes or extra clothes and emergency blankets for colder areas. The happiness of your passengers is also crucial to enjoying a road trip, so it's a good idea to make sure you have enough food, beverages, and entertainment to last the whole trip, especially if kids are involved. Racking your brain on the morning you leave is never fun, so be sure to write a checklist several days before the trip, and check it as you're packing to make sure you have everything you need.
