Before July 4, Make Sure Your Car Is Road Ready

This year’s July 4 holiday is set to be a monumental one. After last year, when a global pandemic all but canceled the festivities, people are ready to get back out there and celebrate America’s birthday as they have traditionally. And that means plenty of car travel. Be it driving down the road to a picnic with fireworks or across the country for a beach vacation, car travel is going to be a big thing this holiday weekend. So before you hit the road, doesn’t it make sense to have a pre-holiday auto check-up from the absolute best in the business, Poughkeepsie’s own Del Hatt Automotive? We can spot-check all your vehicle for any problems that might pop up, and prevent car trouble from ruining your holiday.

Auto AC

Even here in New York, July 4 is a hot holiday. If car travel is any part of your plan for the long weekend, you’ll want to get your auto AC checked out. Nothing is worse than hopping into a hot car after a day at the beach only to realize the AC isn’t working, so avoid the issue and let the pros at Del Hatt Automotive make sure things are in working order. 

Brakes

Your car’s brakes are it’s most essential safety feature, and to avoid disaster this holiday weekend, you’ll want to make sure they are in working order. You might not give much thought to your car’s brakes on a day-to-day basis, but if you’ve heard a squeak or squeal here or there, something is probably amiss. Before this busy driving weekend, you might want to make sure the system that stops your car is in good shape. 

Tires

Seeing as the tires are the only part of your car that actually touches the road, you’ll want to make sure they are in great shape before you hit the road. If your tire tread is worn or you have a slow leak, you could find yourself celebrating the holiday by waiting for a tow truck or changing a tire on the side of the road. That’s no way to celebrate, so let Del Hatt Automotive give you a tire check-up to make sure everything will be just fine.

At Del Hatt Automotive in Poughkeepsie, NY, we understand that this July 4 will be a big one, and we want you and your family to stay safe. With a pre-holiday car check-up, you can have the peace of mind that your car will be in good working order through the holiday.
