Playlist For Your Roadtrip

Are you heading to your grandmother's house for Thanksgiving over the river and through the woods? The open road, the changing landscapes, and the epic playlist that sets the mood— we all know the exhilaration of embarking on a road trip. But have you ever thought about blending two essential parts of your journey: your road trip playlist and your car's maintenance? Yes, you read that right! 


At Aurora AutoPros, we believe in blending the fun with the fun. So, why curate a playlist that not only provides the backdrop to your journey but also serves as a reminder of the importance of prevention and maintenance for your trusty vehicle? Here's our take on a road trip playlist that ensures your car remains in tip-top shape, just like your favorite tunes.

1. "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane

Our Maintenance Note: Before hitting the highway, ensure your tires are in excellent condition. Prevention is always better than cure. Check for uneven wear, and ensure they're inflated to the correct pressure. Nothing ruins a road trip faster than a flat tire in nowhere.

2. "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman

Our Maintenance Note: Fast or slow, your car's engine oil is its lifeblood. Ensure you've had a recent oil change. Clean oil ensures your engine runs smoothly, reduces wear and tear, and harmonizes those RPMs.

3. "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson

Our Maintenance Note: The road can be unpredictable. Before getting 'on the road again,' double-check your brakes. Regular brake inspections and maintenance prevent potential problems and protect you and your passengers.

4. "Fuel" by Metallica

Our Maintenance Note: The song is fiery, and so is the topic! Ensure you're fueling your car with the correct gas type, and consider using a fuel cleaner occasionally. Proper fuel maintenance ensures efficient combustion and a healthier engine.

5. "Drive" by The Cars

Our Maintenance Note: Every drive deserves a seamless transmission. It might be time for a transmission check if you notice any hitches when shifting gears. Prevention can save you from costly repairs in the future.

6. "Battery" by Metallica

Our Maintenance Note: A car's battery is its heart, sending power everywhere it's needed. Ensure your battery connections are clean, tight, and corrosion-free. A routine battery check can save you from unexpected halts.

7. "Cars" by Gary Numan

Our Maintenance Note: Modern cars are filled with electronics. They all rely on the car's electrical system, from your navigation system to the radio. Ensure all the fuses are in place and the wirings are intact.

8. "Ventura Highway" by America

Our Maintenance Note: Your car's ventilation and AC system need love, too! Ensure they're working optimally. Maintenance checks on your filters and AC gas levels keep you breathing easy and feeling fantastic.


So, there you have it! A playlist that not only sets the mood for your road trip but also keeps you educated on essential car maintenance and prevention tips. Keeping your car running smoothly isn't just about the occasional tune-up; it's about consistent care and understanding its needs.


If any of these songs resonate (or their maintenance counterparts ring any alarm bells), it might be time to bring your vehicle into Aurora AutoPros. We're not just about fixing problems; we're about preventing them. Our team is passionate about ensuring every road trip you take is safe, enjoyable, and free of unexpected mechanical concertos.
