Preparations for a long trip

Updated 7/23/2018

Prior to a long trip it is advisable to check the car's functions and equipment particularly carefully.

Check that:

  • the engine is working normally and that fuel consumption is normal
  • there are no leaks (fuel, oil or other fluid)
  • all bulbs are working
  • the tyres have sufficient tread depth and pressure
  • a warning triangle and high-visibility vest are located in the car - legally required in certain countries
  • the wiper blades are operable.
