With the holiday season fast approaching families will be soon start preparing for those long drives ahead. Will your family be traveling for the holidays? If you’ve been busy shopping or carting the kids around, you may not be keen to the potential problems with your vehicle this holiday season. Even if you aren’t going on a holiday road trip, there are some things you should do to get your car holiday ready.
How to Get Your Car Holiday Ready
From shopping to attending holiday parties, most people find themselves doing a lot more running around during the holiday season. Now is a good time to check your tire pressure, oil level and schedule any vehicle maintenance your car is due for. A checkup that could possibly prevent any breakdowns or becoming stranded alongside the road side. Take a day and test drive your vehicle on the highway to listen for any noises and watch for trouble signs with any of the gauges. Who wants to spend their holiday stuck at an unfamiliar mechanic shop?
Make sure you have a breakdown kit with a flash light. Also, be sure your emergency road side service is current and have their number handy in the glove box or on speed dial.
You’ll also want to keep your car smelling fresh this holiday season. All those extra trips to the mall and drive through dinners can leave your car smelling a little funky. I’m using PERK Fresh Link to keep my car smelling fresh this holiday season.
The thing I like most about my car is that it’s paid for. But after hauling kids and teens around for the last eight years, it needs a little help in the freshness department.
PERK Fresh Link is a fun, colorful air freshener that can be clipped anywhere and linked together for personalized fragrance combinations. The Fresh Link’s patented design allows the air freshener to easily clip around multiple areas of the car, including the rearview mirror, headrest, gearshift, or grab bars- anywhere you could use some fresh scent with style! The patented clip design gives you endless options – clip it anywhere! It was easy to slip onto the rearview mirror of my Honda.
Here it is on one of the headrests in my car.
You can even slip it onto the gearshift. It’s lightweight and stays securely in place.
The PERK Fresh Link is available in a variety of amazing PERK fragrances, including favorites such as Golden Vanilla, Caribbean Colada and New Car. Want a custom scent? The products can be linked together to create custom fragrances and color combinations. Each PERK Fresh Link lasts up to 30 days. Visit PERK’s Facebook page to learn more.
