Car troubles would put a serious damper on your road trip adventure from Rumson or Colts Neck, so before you hit the road, schedule a visit to the Jaguar Monmouth service center for vehicle maintenance. We’ll make sure your car, truck, or SUV is in proper working order.

Road Trip Vehicle Maintenance

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.

Car Mechanic inspecting brakes

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.

Mechanic changing car battery

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.

Adding oil to car

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.
