Let your technician know that you’re going on a road trip, and they’ll be sure to inspect things like the oil level, the rake system, the transmission and differential fluids, tire wear, coolant, and more.

How Else Can I Prepare for a Long Road Trip?

In addition to bringing your vehicle in for service and inspection, there are several steps you can take on your own to make sure that your road trip is an enjoyable one. The key thing to remember is that being overly prepared is better than being underprepared. Start off by making sure that your VW has an emergency roadside kit and an emergency first aid kit; these can help if you run into any trouble. When it comes to long stretches of time in the car, happy passengers are the best--so be sure to bring enough food, beverages, and entertainment. Pack a few extra trash bags while you’re at it; they really do come in handy for keeping your vehicle neat.
