Why a Trip Inspection Is a Good Idea


At Advanced Auto Pros we get a lot of Greeley drivers asking about car trip preparation. That's a big deal. You could be driving through mountains and deserts in some pretty lonely areas around CO, so it's important to know that the car is up to the task and won't leave you stranded.

Smart Greeley drivers plan ahead for a major road trip – and there are a lot of things to get ready. Where should you start? You could start with the tires. Look them over for tread wear and check to see that they are properly inflated. Take a quick test drive around Greeley to see if you can feel any vibrations: are the wheels in balance? Is the car tracking straight? Is the alignment ok? Come to Advanced Auto Pros for a peace-of-mind trip inspection.
