Last updated:

After returning from a road trip, it's essential to perform a thorough car maintenance check to ensure your vehicle remains in optimal condition. This includes cleaning both the exterior and interior, assessing tire pressure and condition, topping off fluids, and inspecting various components such as air filters, brakes, suspension, and steering. Additionally, pay attention to the battery terminals, serpentine belt, wheel alignment, exhaust system, spark plugs, and fuel filter. Finally, reset the trip odometer and update your maintenance log to keep track of your vehicle's upkeep.
