It seems like it was just snowing in Kansas City a few weeks ago. It’s crazy to start talking about getting ready for summer vacation now, right?

High school kids across the area are getting ready for prom, studying for finals, and planning graduation night hijinx now because in just a matter of weeks…

School’s out for summer!

(sing along with Uncle Alice if you know the words)

The bad news is if you haven’t already made reservations for a hotel at the beach or a lake house in the Ozarks, picking’s are probably going to be pretty slim.

The good news is that you’ve still got plenty of time to make sure your vehicle is ready to brave the summer heat and make the trip. Trust us; there’s nothing hotter than highway asphalt in July while you sit there waiting for the tow truck, but you don’t have to risk it.

How can I make sure my car is ready for summer?

AAA has a nine-point checklist to help you get your vehicle ready for summer travel no matter where the road takes you

  1. Check the tires and pressure
  2. Check the brakes 
  3. Test the battery
  4. Check the fluids
  5. Wiper blades and windshield cleaner
  6. Belts and hoses
  7. Double-check the Air conditioning (triple-check it if you’re driving through Texas)
  8. Take an emergency kit
  9. Plan ahead for service

And by plan ahead, we assume they mean just bring your car, truck, or SUV to Crossley Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center.
