GRAND BLANC, Mich. — Summer road trip season is here and with it, millions of Americans are packing up to get away. According to a recent Travel Channel survey, 81 percent of Americans said they would “love to take a road trip,” with the number increasing to 87 percent for those who have kids.
For those on the move this summer, GM’s parts brands, GM Genuine Parts and ACDelco, compiled a list of five essentials to check before embarking on a road trip.
“We want drivers to have peace of mind and enjoy their road trip,” said John Latner, manager, ACDelco Technical Training. “With these quick maintenance checks - which can be as simple as testing tread depth with a penny - drivers can stay focused on the journey ahead.”
To stay road trip ready, the checklist below can help ensure your vehicle is in top condition for wherever the summer takes you.

For those not comfortable conducting maintenance checks, you can schedule an appointment with your local Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac Certified Service experts or visit an ACDelco Professional Service Center.
