At Sansone Hyundai of Avenel, NJ we train our Hyundai car dealers to tailor their services to meet the unique needs of our customers. As such we specialize in more than just selling great cars, we also provide expert automotive advice as well, and to us, few pieces of advice are quite as useful as knowing how to prepare your car for a road trip.

In our opinion, the best way to see the country is to take to the road. Sure flying is faster, and going by train may be easier, but the best way to experience travel is by road tripping. That said, long-distance driving should not be taken lightly, and before you embark you should be sure your car is ready for the journey.

There are many forms of maintenance you should do before hitting the pavement, but one of the most important things you can do is to have your oil changed. Motor oil is a crucial motor fluid responsible for the smooth function of your engine. By swapping having your oil changed out every 5,000 miles you can ensure the long-term health of your engine, and enjoy a far smoother ride.

Another bit of useful servicing your car could use before a road trip is to have your engine’s air filters replaced. Your engine requires clean air to function properly, and it is the job of the air filters to provide that clean air. Unfortunately, these air filters can become clogged with debris, and as a result, push your engine to work harder than is necessary. To avoid this, we recommend having your air filters inspected and changed by a technical professional before you hit the road.

Whether you’re preparing for a road trip, or just need regular inspection, our Hyundai service department at Sansone Hyundai has got you covered. It is our goal to fulfill all of your automotive needs, pre-road-trip maintenance needs included.
