During the summertime, you’ll want to take extra precautions by checking your Mazda to make sure it’s in good shape before taking off. You’ll want to pay close attention to the radiator, pressure cap, belts, and hoses to make sure they’re free from any wear or abrasions. You’ll also want to take a look at the fluid levels – that includes the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, coolant, and others.

If you’re planning a longer trip, you’ll want to take a couple more precautions. Check the tire pressure and battery power before leaving and solve those issues if need be. It may not be a bad idea to get your car inspected by an auto shop before leaving, as you never know what problems may be just miles away from rearing their ugly heads. After all, the last thing you want on a long road trip is to break down in an unfamiliar place. Be sure to bring along an emergency kit as well as extra food, water, a flashlight, jumper cables, blankets, and towels just in case.
