Before you hit the freeway, it's imperative to check all four tires for any cuts or gouges. You should also check tire pressure and listen closely to the brakes for any odd noises if you're inspecting the vehicle yourself. It's also good to replace wiper blades and replenish windshield cleaner. Wondering if you can take a high-mileage car on a road trip? If you've been keeping up with routine car maintenance and your vehicle is in good mechanical shape, then you should have no problems taking an older car on a road trip.
