Servicing Your Vehicle When Prepping for a Road Trip

Servicing Your Vehicle When Prepping for a Road Trip | Reliance Mitsubishi Blog

Need to start prepping for a road trip, but don’t know where to start? Here are some suggestions for servicing your vehicle so that it’s road trip ready.

Wash Your Vehicle

Dirt can get into the undercarriage of your vehicle and cause damage and reduce visibility. Plus, it just looks terrible. Give your vehicle a thorough wash before a trip.

Check Tires

Improperly inflated tires can cause a whole host of problems, from poor fuel economy to popping easier on hot pavement. Tires with worn or uneven tread or tires that are improperly aligned can also lead to major problems.

Check Battery

A dead battery will derail your road trip plans. Check your battery capacity and connections before heading out on your trip.

Catch Up With Routine Service

It’s easy to fall behind on your vehicle’s regular maintenance schedule, but before a road trip it’s especially important to get all the routine stuff such as oil changes and tire rotations out of the way.

Pack Emergency Kit

Sometimes no matter how much effort you put into prepping for a road trip, emergencies will happen. You can be better prepared for unforeseen situations by packing an emergency kit that includes jumper cables, flashlights, a first aid kit, and tools.

Classic Mitsubishi Cars

100 Years of Mitsubishi | Reliance Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi has been around for a while, and across the years, the automaker has gone through various transitions. However, there have always been those standout vehicles. Here are some of the most classic Mitsubishi cars.

Mitsubishi Eclipse

A zippy two-door coupe, the Eclipse was immediately a hit upon its 1989 debut. It became a must-have sports car, turning out an impressive 195 horsepower at its top trim level.

Mitsubishi Montero

The Montero, which surfaced in 1986, served as an affordable and fun SUV option. It had plenty of power to tackle roads less traveled and featured a unique boxy style that likely made it so popular.

Mitsubishi Lancer 1600 GSR

And, of course, the Lancer. The Lancer has always been a much-beloved car, and a multiple-time rally winner. The 1600 GSR first debuted in 1973 and was turning heads on race tracks all over the world in its active years.

Mitsubishi Galant

In 1988, Mitsubishi set themselves apart with the Galant sedan, which won the title of Japanese Car of the Year. The versatility of the Galant is what made it popular, with multiple power options that made the sedan feel more like a sports car.

Mitsubishi Diamante

The Diamante hit all the marks in 1990 by providing the driver with both luxury and affordability. It resembled the high-class BMW but at a much lower price.
