Long hours at freeway speeds can put additional stress on your vehicle - and there's nothing worse than your car suffering a breakdown hundreds of miles from the nearest Subaru service center. That's why it's a great idea to have your car inspected by a factory-trained Subaru technician before you hit the open road. They'll inspect the entire vehicle, particularly the systems most vulnerable on a long drive, and recommend any services that need to be performed before you embark.

Thanks to features like EyeSight® and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, there are few vehicles better suited to a cross-country drive than a Subaru! There are more than 48,000 miles of interstate freeway in the U.S. and untold millions of highways, byways, side streets and dirt trails to explore. Your local Subaru dealer can help you take on them all, worry-free!

What Systems on my Vehicle are Most Important on a Road Trip?

Before you set off on your adventure, have your tires inspected. After all, they're the only points on your vehicle that actually contact the road, and if they're not properly inflated or severely worn down, they're more likely to experience a blowout or tread separation.

It's also a good idea to have the cooling system looked over. If your engine begins to overheat on a long drive, you'll need to pull over to allow the engine to cool - and if it's due to a faulty cooling system, it'll just keep overheating, making forward progress impossible. Your local Subaru dealer can inspect the radiator, hoses, pump and fluid to make sure your engine can handle the heat of a long drive.
