Summer is the perfect time to head out on the road and embark on the trip of a lifetime. The 2019 MitsubishiOutlander has all the features and towing capacity you need for the ultimate adventure. However, before you hit the road, it’s important not only to be comfortable towing with your Outlander but also to get necessary maintenance.
Boasting up to 3,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity when properly equipped, the Outlander ensures you have plenty of power to bring along everything you need on your next road trip. Plus, with the Mitsubishi Outlander towing package, which includes a factory-engineered trailer tow wire harness and a factory-installed tow hitch, you can travel with a trailer, camper, ATV or Jet Ski.
Oil and filter
Typically, you should change your vehicle’s motor oil every 5,000 miles or so. However, if you’re about to take off for an extended road trip, it’s always a good idea to change your vehicle’s oil and oil filter beforehand to ensure optimal performance.
Good visibility is extremely important for overall safety on the road, so always check that all lights, including brake lights and high beams, work properly before you leave on a longer trip.
Pack a spare
You should always drive with a spare tire, and this is particularly true when on a road trip. Also, make sure you have a jack and tire iron so you can change out a flat tire if necessary.
Before leaving on your trip, make a point of checking each tire for adequate tread and inflation. If any tires aren’t holding air properly, it’s a good idea to install a new set before you’re left stranded far from home.
Always bring along an emergency kit on a road trip. Your kit should include things, like blankets, bottled water, non-perishable food and a battery-powered cellphone charger.
