600 × 400
​Summer is winding down, but that doesn't mean you have to put a stopper on your need for adventure. If you're looking to get one last hurrah in before the season is officially over, the team at Stokes Volkswagen is here to help with a few tips to help your road trips (and everyday drives) go as smoothly as possible.

Here are a couple of tricks to help you enjoy a smooth ride no matter where the road takes you around North Charleston:

Stay on top of routine maintenance

Few things are more frustrating than having to pull over to the side of the road when you have somewhere to be. By keeping up with your vehicle's routine maintenance schedule, however, you can keep your Volkswagen in tip-top shape and reduce the risk of running into car trouble.

Here at our Volkswagen service center serving Charleston and Summerville, we can take care of a wide array basic maintenance items to help your vehicle perform at its best such as:

  • Oil change
  • Tire rotation
  • Wheel alignment
  • Brake service
  • And more!

Build a roadside emergency kit

If you don't already have a roadside emergency kit in your car, now is the perfect time to put one together. That way, you'll be prepared if you do run into car trouble. A roadside emergency kit will help you stay safe as you get your car back up and running or wait for help.

Consider keeping the following items in your car at all times:

  • Jumper cables
  • Duct tape
  • First-aid kit
  • Flashlight
  • Reflective road triangles
  • Foam tire sealant
  • Blanket
  • Non-perishable food in a secure container and water

If you have any questions about preparing your vehicle for a road trip or keeping your ride in peak condition, feel free to give us a call or stop by our Volkswagen dealership near Mount Pleasant, SC. We'll be happy to help!
