The Importance of A Pre-Summer Trip Inspection

Before we begin this blog on the importance of trip inspections, we here at Foothill Auto Service wanted to start with a short personal message on the importance of Gray May. You may have never heard about Gray May, but here at Foothill, we are impacted by it every day. Gray May represents Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and we spend this month dedicating time to supporting and empowering the voices of the brain tumor community. We know this isn’t something most auto-shops speak upon, but we wanted to begin by sharing our support and raise awareness as our business is personally involved.

With long summer days finally, ahead of us, it’s essential to keep your vehicle in its tip-top shape, given the ever-changing climate. It’s vital to understand the importance of trip inspections & here at Foothills Auto Service; we provide the best care for your vehicle. First, why are trip inspections even necessary? Trip inspections are an essential process to ensure everything in your car is appropriately operating for optimal results. When trip inspections are skipped or neglected, it can result in damage to your vehicle and your wallet, as well as delays to the necessary trips you’ve been looking forward to.

Another critical reason is your safety. It can be dangerous to head out on the road with damaged brakes, corrupt wiring, or dented heat shields. Please take a quick 30-minute check to ensure everything is where it should be and to guarantee your safety and everyone on the road. Doing a pre-trip inspection can also detect minor problems and issues before becoming a severe problem, saving you money and time, as most minor matters are quicker and easier to deal with. Imagine your road-tripping to Los Angeles, and you run out of oil halfway through your trip. Then you have to contact a roadside repair company, which typically costs more than double than one would be at your local shop. Who wants to run out of oil when you’re sitting on the 405? Trip Inspections are crucial and overall will save you money and time and prolong your vehicle’s life.
