Time to get your tires, auto air conditioning and brakes checked out before the long Labor Day weekend.
Hard to believe but Labor Day is a little more than a week away. And AAA is predicting that 35.5 million Americans will travel 50 or more miles from home during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the highest volume for the holiday since 2008 and a 1 percent increase from the 35 million who traveled during Labor Day weekend last year. This will mark the fourth consecutive year of overall travel growth for the Labor Day holiday period, and the seventh out of the past nine years to see year-over-year increase in volume, AAA says. And most of those will be on the road: 85.8 percent of travelers will drive. Automobile travel will increase by 1.1 percent this year, with 30.4 million travelers hitting the road.
That means you’re going to be in a lot of traffic whether you’re going far – California, here we come; not so far – Prairie du Sac for the Wisconsin State Cow Chip Throw; or just hanging around the backyard grillin’ and chillin’. (You’ll probably venture to the grocery store at the very least.)
All that means you need to prepare for that road trip. And, of course, one way to do that is to bring your car by Terry’s Car Care for a pre-road trip checkup. After all, you don’t want to end up by the side of the road watching the traffic crawl by. That’s definitely no fun. Among those checkups is, of course, an oil change, if needed, and a once over of your tires and your brakes and braking system. You also want to make sure your auto a/c is working. That’s not only for your comfort, it’s also so your passengers have a good trip.
Terry’s has been the trusted auto air and brake service shop in Madison for almost 50 years. Terry’s also has some money-saving discounts on certain auto parts – including up to $75 back in a prepaid VISA for qualifying NAPA strut replacements. Ask us about the discounts while you’re here. And, by coming to Terry’s, you get a free day’s parking in Madison’s always congested isthmus.
