Taking a road trip with the family is a great way to celebrate and enjoy the warmer weather while making life-long memories. Fortunately, Mitsubishi has a full selection of vehicles designed to go the distance and offer plenty of comfort along the way. Even so, there are a few things you need to take care of before hitting the road. Here are some helpful tips for road trips from us here at Bakersfield Mitsubishi!
- Optimize Space – Making sure you have room for your passengers to sit comfortably can be a project, as many drivers will tell you. Fitting all your luggage and cargo without butting into someone’s space can be difficult. Make sure to optimize your space or take a vehicle with more than enough room for everyone, like the Mitsubishi Outlander, which seats seven.
- Plan Ahead – While it’s important to have a plan, it can be devastating to have a plan that’s too tightly structured. Even the slightest delay, like waiting five to ten minutes at a full gas station, can throw everything off schedule. Make a plan and take an efficient vehicle, like the Mitsubishi Mirage or Mirage G4, to ensure you arrive on time.
- Inspection – Have your vehicle professionally inspected about a week before your trip to allow for any repairs or service. Doing so minimizes the chance of a breakdown on the road. Fortunately, all Mitsubishi vehicles come backed by a long-lasting warranty, including 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage.
