It’s that time of year again when our children are heading back for another year of college. No matter if they are going cross country, or in the same city, this is the perfect time to ensure their vehicle is in perfect condition for driving. Several factors are to be considered, especially if they are going a long distance away from school.
The first real factor is that the weather will be changing in the next couple of months from the hot summer to fall and winter conditions. Making sure that their vehicles can handle another winter is important to ensure they are going to be able to travel safely. Ensuring things are taken care of such as new tires for maximum traction, or new brake pads so they can stop safely. Even flushes of the coolant system, transmission and fuel system can assist in ensuring that the vehicle runs properly for the long year away.
We all remember when we were in college, sometimes things went aside because of our small budget! Taking your child’s car to a respectable dealership to have their vehicle factory serviced ensures they will be well prepared for the harsh driving conditions. We also know how we drove our vehicles when we were younger as well!
Conversely, if you don’t think that the vehicle will make it another year, it may be time to trade it in for a new used vehicle! Something with fewer miles, wear, and safer features could be just what the parents ordered! This time of year also means that dealerships, such as Reedman-Toll Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & RAM are starting their summer clearance events. At the time of writing of this article, they are offering twenty percent off certain vehicles. You can get maximum savings while providing for a safe ride for your loved college student!
