Instead of worrying about car troubles on your road trip adventure, be sure to schedule a visit to the Blue Ridge Nissan of Wytheville service center for vehicle maintenance. When you’re ready to take your next Wytheville or Marion road trip, We’ll make sure your Nissan Rogue, Nissan Altima, blue Nissan Maxima, or other Nissan vehicle is in proper working order.

Road Trip Vehicle Maintenance

Brakes: Like your tires, your brake pads also experience wear and tear. If you’re hearing a screeching or grinding noise when you press the brake pedal, be sure to get that checked out before hitting the road.

Tire Inspection: Because your tires are constantly in contact with the road, wear and tear is bound to happen. Over time, the tread on your tires gets worn down. Before taking a long drive, be sure your tires are properly inflated and find out if any need to be replaced.

Battery: If your current car battery is more than a few years old, you’ll want to make sure it’s still functioning properly to avoid getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. It’s important that there’s no corrosion and that it’s still got plenty of juice to keep your car running.

Oil Change: Oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine and prevents friction. You should be getting your oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles on average. If you haven’t gotten an oil change in a while, be sure to schedule one before your road trip.
