I have been traveling home for the holidays for over 20 years, mainly because I live in Texas and most of my family live in Colorado, Indiana and Michigan, so the Jeep always needs to be road ready.
Recently I have added shows in South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia because one of my best friends moved to Richmond, VA and I love knowing that if I didn't get the oil change before I left, I can visit the Walmart Automotive Care Centers in the Southeast because they now offer oil changes with Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee, click to find your local Walmart Auto Center.
One of the most important things I do before hitting the road is making sure the Jeep is ready to go with an oil change at the Walmart auto care center, where they use the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™. Along with the oil change, there is a list of things that need to be checked off before anyone hits the road, whether you are going across the country to visit family for the holiday’s or traveling state to state for work.
Another great reason for taking the Jeep to the auto tech at the Walmart Auto center is because they check the fluids in your car – window washer, transmission fluid and radiator fluid, and be sure to request that they put fluid and not water in the window washer and radiator reservoir if you are traveling north in the winter. You never know when that wonderful snow will come and you don't want to have frozen water in your window washer or radiator reservoir.
A few other things to be checked are the air in your tires and your navigation system, make sure it’s up to date, and make sure you have a good road trip kit in case something happens. The road trip kit should include a flashlight, jumper cables, and flares or reflective markers for the road just in case something happens when it is dark out.
The last thing on my list is making sure I have lots of munchies and drinks for the road, I always pick these up at Walmart while I am getting the oil changed in my Jeep.
These items on my checklist were taught to me by my dad who has been a mechanic for over 50 years, and he made sure I was always road ready since the day I could drive. Be sure to ask the automotive technician that does your oil change if there are any other things that need to be checked on your car before you hit the road.
Now that my Jeep is ready to hit the road for the holidays, I need to get all my gifts ready to be packed away and loaded in the back of the Jeep, I even found some great holiday wrapping paper and ribbon at Walmart, my gifts are going to be the hit of Christmas.
Just remember to stop by your Walmart Auto center before you head off on that holiday travel and get the oil changed with Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic is on Rollback($49.88 Rollback to $44.88) through December 27, 2016, it will help save you some money so you have more to spend on all of those Christmas gifts.
