If you’re like the team here at our Toyota dealership in New Jersey, then chances are that your summer social calendar tends to fill up fast. It seems like every weekend has us running from one gathering to the next. We’d never complain about having fun, but staying ahead of the curve can be tough when it comes to planning ahead. With a bit of prep now, you can ensure that you’re always ready for a good time–whether it’s expected or not!
Prep for the Sun…
We all love to soak up the sun, but UV rays are nothing to play with. Keeping a hat and sunblock in your car ensures that you’re never caught off guard when it’s time to spend some time outdoors. Don’t forget that a day in the sun without appropriate protection is an obvious health risk, but also takes you down for the count when it comes to fun in the sun in the days to come!
…And Prep for Fun
Speaking of being ready for unexpected sun, don’t forget about the fun side of things! You never know when you’ll decide to make an impulse stop along the shore or when a barbecue will have a pool, so toss an extra bathing suit and a pair of flip flops in your trunk, as well. It’s always better to be prepared than to be the one stuck poolside while everyone else takes a dip.
Think of the Road Ahead
In addition to grabbing must-haves for you and your crew, don’t forget about your vehicle! A service visit is always a good idea when the seasons change, and our New Jersey Toyota service center also recommends keeping a few things handy for emergencies. Jumper cables and a properly maintained spare tire are essential, and we also suggest grabbing an extra jug of coolant in case of overheating. Just be sure to grab pre-diluted coolant, and never open the radiator before your car has a chance to cool down.
Wherever you’re headed this summer, thinking a few steps ahead is always a great idea! For more information on summer driving, or to find the perfect car for your summer adventures, be sure to contact Toyota of Morristown online or to call our team at (973) 540-1111 today.
