Presenting a prime check-list that you must get done before you set out on any road trip:
Declutter your ride by giving your car a quick clean wipe while disposing all the garbage beforehand. Equip yourself with an Auto Safety Kit. The kit comes handy if it includes an air compressor, shovel, brush and a scraper and a toolkit. Check if the jack of the car is in a good condition. Keep an extra wiper fluid, and jumper cables.
Check for vehicle noises such as popping, hissing or excessive loudness, these could indicate issues related to vehicle exhaust problems.
Check for suspension-related issues, damaged shocks or struts, broken mounts or bushings; swaying or bouncing of the vehicle.
Examine tyre pressure, make sure the recommended tire pressure is set according to your vehicle’s specifications. Check for uneven tyre wear. Uneven tread wear indicates there are alignment issues. Properly inflated and aligned tires along with a clean air filter can improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
Examine the headlights, high beams, brake lights and monitor the fluid levels in your vehicle including washer fluid, coolant, brake fluid & engine oil. Schedule any necessary service such as oil changes or tune-ups.
Check the windshield wipers for smears. If there is a bounce or failure to clear the windshield, it's time for a replacement.
Examine your vehicle's drive belt or serpentine belt and check the tensioner that attaches the belt to the engine.
A road trip is no fun if your car won’t start! Assess your vehicle's battery, check the water level, loose connections, loose cables or corrosion. Make sure the battery is charged and has clean terminals. A little baking soda and water will come handy for quick cleaning. Be mindful about the time of replacement and choose a battery that best suits your car. Check the performance rating of the batteries that you choose.

Inspect your car’s brake pads to make sure they aren’t worn out. Replace if necessary.
Filters must be free of debris and other pollutants, and that air must be circulating properly.
