Is Your Car ready for a Road Trip?

The Caves Road winds through the Boranup Karee Forest near the town of Margaret River

Western Australia has many great starting points for a road trip and let's face it, most people who do are doing so to explore beautiful coastlines, national parks, and wineries. Perth is well-situated for road trips to other parts of the state. Particularly to the south, where lies the famous Margaret River which is a must-visit destination for 4WD owners especially but really anyone who loves to be out of the city. Margaret river offers beautiful beaches, forests, caves, and other natural attractions. Only 3 hours down the coast from Forrestfield.

Whether you want to explore the city or experience the natural beauty of Western Australia, it’s important to prepare your car for a road trip. Coming into our store to make sure your car is prepared correctly, Tyrepower Kewdale is a great place to begin a weekend away.

Let’s have a look at some tips, including advice on tyre pressure, checking fluids, and packing a basic emergency kit.

Check your tyres

Your tyres are one of the most crucial parts of your car, and it’s important to ensure they are in good condition before hitting the road. Check your tyre pressures, tread depth, and overall condition of your tyres to make sure they are safe to use.

Don’t forget to check your spare tyre too, and that you have the tools to swap a tyre out, should the need arise.

Check your car fluids

Your car relies on several fluids to function correctly. These include engine oil, coolant, and brake fluid. Check these fluids and top them up as necessary before setting off on your journey. Additionally its important to ensure that you have enough windscreen wiper fluid as well.

Inspect your brakes

Car brakes are crucial for your safety, especially during long trips where you might find road hazards or heavy traffic. Pay attention to signs of wear, such as screeching or grinding sounds when you brake.

If you experience noises or a shaking brake pedal, don’t delay, have your vehicle inspected by an authorised mechanical service centre.

Pack an emergency kit

Anything can happen, and it’s important to be prepared for the unexpected. Pack an emergency kit that includes items such as a spare tyre, a flashlight, jumper cables, a first aid kit, water, and snacks.

Get a comprehensive car service

It might be a good idea to get your car serviced before your road trip, especially if it hasn’t been inspected in a while. A comprehensive car service can identify any potential issues your vehicle may have, helping to ensure it is in top condition for your road trip.
