No matter the season, road trips are a great way to see the country, visit friends and family and take well-deserved vacations. To help make your road trip plans a success, visit our local Chevy dealer and we’ll perform a road trip inspection to ensure your vehicle is in perfect working order for a long adventure. The certified service technicians at our Chevrolet dealership in Hales Corners will assess what your vehicle needs and make repairs and complete routine maintenance accordingly. Our car maintenance checklist includes oil changes, battery checks, tire rotations and more, so you can rest easy knowing that your Chevy SUV, truck or sedan is ready to go.

Can I Take My Older Car on a Road Trip?

Yes! You can take an older car or a high mileage vehicle on a road trip, as long as it’s been well maintained. The service professionals at our Wisconsin Chevy dealer will evaluate the condition of your vehicle as they complete our road trip service and determine if your vehicle is ready for the long drive ahead. They’ll repair or replace a car battery for you, install new tires, check fluids and more, so you can feel confident behind the wheel. If it’s determined that your older vehicle isn’t in safe condition for a long road trip, our Chevy sales team can walk you through our inventory of new Chevrolet trucks, SUVs and sedans, so you can find the right fit for your lifestyle.
