Key Maintenance Projects to Keep in Mind Before Leaving on Your Summer Road Trip

Each Toyota part and component - from the engine, transmission, and fluids, to tires and brakes - play a critical role in getting you from Point A to Point B. Before you leave Newark, make sure your Toyota is in shipshape with recent maintenance work on the following.

Oil Level

How many miles are you driving on your summer road trip? If you're taking your Toyota far away from the confines of New York City, make sure you've gotten a conventional oil change within the last 3,000 miles or a full synthetic oil change and oil filter replacement in the last six months or 6,000 miles driven. Check your oil level before leaving! The Towne Toyota service center is your home for quick and convenient oil changes.

Brakes & Tires for Effective Braking

We'll also assess your tire tread depth and make sure each tire is around the recommended 10/32 of an inch. This ensures proper braking and stopping in limited time or distance in all weather conditions. The same goes for your brakes, which is why Towne Toyota will perform a brake inspection.

Tire Pressure

Don't risk a flat tire! Check your tire pressure if you find that any of your tires have a significantly lower PSI tire pressure reading than the others. A lower PSI may indicate a leak or puncture. Have this checked out before hitting the road. Our tire center will equip you with new tires fitted for your Toyota and conduct a tire rotation if necessary.

Fluids Levels

The Towne Toyota service center will check and replenish or top off any fluids levels - including windshield washer fluid, engine coolant, brake fluid, and power steering fluid - under the hood before you go.

Battery Inspection

Dover drivers will want their Toyota to start consistently on their summer trip. We'll inspect your battery and that it has a healthy charge level and reading before you leave. Make sure your battery terminals are secure and free from battery acid.

Inspect All Exterior Lights

Make sure you can see and be seen on your summer trip. That's why Newark drivers need to inspect all exterior lights, including headlights, taillights, fog lights, and more. Replace any bulbs that may be burnt out before hitting the road. This ensures proper visibility in all driving conditions.

Wiper Blades

Wharton families may encounter rainy weather on their summer trip. That's why your wiper blades should be checked to make sure they're not torn or streaking. Our Toyota parts center will provide proper windshield wiper replacement blades for your worn ones.
