Whether you’re going to drive a 2016 Porsche Panamera or another type of vehicle during your next road trip, there are a few things you should do to get ready for your trip. The most important thing you need to do prior to hitting the road is bring your automobile to our Porsche dealership in Florida.

Before you head out on a road trip, you should have your vehicle serviced by a trained technician to make sure your automobile can handle the rigors of an extended trip. Our technicians will check your car’s fluid levels and top them off if necessary. We’ll also check your vehicle’s belts and your tires’ tread and air pressure, among other things. After we’re done working on your automobile, you’ll have the peace of mind that automatically comes with knowing your vehicle really is road trip ready.

Prior to leaving home, you should put a first aid kit in your car and make sure it has everything you’ll need in case someone gets hurt or becomes ill during your trip, including bandages, a sterilizing agent, and aspirin. You should also put extra doses of whatever medications you need to take daily in your first aid kit in case your trip ends up being longer than your originally intended.

You should also prepare a snack bag with treats that you and your companions enjoy. If you’re going to be traveling with children, your snack bag should have an appropriate mix of indulgent and healthy snacks. The day you’re going to leave, get a cooler ready by stocking it with ice and beverages. You can store extra drinks in your trunk and restock your cooler when you stop along your route to use the restroom or eat a meal.

You can also put together a bag that has extra chargers for your mobile devices.  You should put some CDs in this bag in case you drive through an area where you lose your radio’s signal and you can’t connect to the Internet.  Throwing a few books and magazines in the bag is a good idea, too.  Don’t forget to pack some blankets and pillows as well in case your passengers get sleepy during the ride.

If you’re going to take a road trip, start getting ready for it by visiting Porsche Jacksonville so we can make sure your automobile is ready for your adventure. You can schedule your next service appointment by visiting our website, giving us a call, or stopping by our Porsche dealership in Jacksonville, FL. We’ll look forward to seeing you when you bring your car into our Porsche service center.
