road tripIf you are considering headed out for a road trip in your new or used GMC Truck from Thunder Bay ON, there are some things you will want to do first in order to ensure readiness for both you and your new GMC Truck in Ontario.  The arrival of spring, although a bit down the road from now, always stirs up a longing for adventure. After months cooped up inside and navigating wet or icy roads, blue skies and warm weather are very good reasons to load up your Thunder Bay GMC Truck and hit the highway.

However, your best planning will be undone if you can’t depend on your truck along the way. “A breakdown on your daily commute is one thing, but what if your truck leaves you stranded miles outside the middle of nowhere? Truck care is necessary year-round, but especially before a road trip, so we recommend completion of the following maintenance suggestions before you hit the open road.

Fluids, for starters, must take priority as they are the lifeblood of any car or truck, including your new or used GMC Trucks from Thunder Bay Canada. Service intervals can and do vary on your car or truck and will depend on mileage as well. You will want to consider how far you have driven since last you had your truck maintenance and fluids tended to, as well as how far you will drive on your Thunder Bay GMC Truck roadtrip.  Once you have done the math, you can better answer if fluids need to be addressed before the trip, or if they can wait until you return home. If there is any question as to whether or not they should be address prior to leaving, especially the oil, it would be wise to do it early rather than risk issues away from home, or perhaps in an area with little or no service options.
