Have a Car Going to College? | Berryhill Auto Care

If your college student is taking a car back to school, it’s time to have it checked out by the Berryhill auto care specialists at Same Day.

Summer might not be officially over until Sept. 23, but any family with school age children knows the true end of summer is the day the kids go back to school. That’s going to happen this week for most Tulsa kids. Also going back to school soon are the kids who are headed to colleges, universities and tech schools.

If they’re going away from home for the first time, parents are feeling a special kind of bitter sweetness and stress. If you’re letting your college-bound student take a car, then that adds another level of stress.

The non-profit Car Care Council says that stress can be reduced with a four-step plan:

Get a sendoff vehicle inspection: College is a busy time for students and it is likely that car care at college will not be top of mind. Be sure to schedule a thorough vehicle inspection before packing up the car so you can rest easy knowing your child is driving a road-ready vehicle.

Make an emergency plan: Discuss a plan with your child in case they experience a roadside emergency. Be sure they know who to contact for roadside assistance and stock the car with an emergency kit, including jumper cables, emergency flares, a flashlight with batteries, blankets and extra clothes, water and non-perishable snacks, a first aid kit, a portable USB charger and a fully charged cell phone. To be prepared for inclement weather, include an ice scraper, a snow brush and small shovel.

Hit the books: Encourage your child to learn about auto care by reviewing the Car Care Council’s online Car Care Guide and becoming familiar with the owner’s manual. …

“Stay on schedule” when it comes to routine maintenance.
