  • Oil Change

  • Check for Fluid Leaks
  • Top Off Fluid Levels
  • Battery Test
  • Resolve any issues like the check engine light being on

  • Plan Ahead – Using a road trip planner like Roadtrippers or Furkot will help you find destinations near Hendersonville and beyond.
  • Bring Plenty of Food and Water – It can be a long time between rest stops, so be sure to bring road trip snacks like granola bars, dried fruit, and bottles of water.
  • Road Trip Games – Classic car games like “I Spy” can help to pass the time and keep kids occupied. Print out a list of games and their instructions before you set out.
  • Make a Playlist – Road trip songs like “Born to Run” and “Little Red Corvette” are popular options, but you can make your playlist reflect your personal style. If you need an upgraded audio system, the parts department at Serra Chevrolet Buick GMC of Nashville can help.
