Time to Hit the Road
-
If there's one upside to 2020, it's that the year made us all appreciate road trips more. While road trip destinations now come with a new set of considerations, the fundamental spirit of adventure that makes road trips interesting is as strong as ever! A recent survey shows that more than 70% of respondents are itching for some time away after spending so many months at home, and we understand!

Thankfully, road trips are much safer than other forms of transportation and are one of the few ways to scratch that adventuring itch right now. Here are a couple of tips from Beyer Subaru to make the most of your next trip away from home--be it a day drive, a weekend getaway, or a much longer adventure. 
-
Be Proactive With Maintenance
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Being on top of your car's maintenance schedule can save you from some costly and inconvenient surprises later on. Before you head out, check your tires' depth and age to make sure that they're up for the trip. Additionally, consider using Subaru Service to check your battery in order to make sure that there aren't any signs of wear. Double-check the replacement timelines on your serpentine belt and timing belt to make sure that your car is all good to go! 
-
Consider Investing in Accessories
Having the right tech in your car can make all the difference when you're making your own fun on a road trip. Sure, car accessories are hardly mandatory, but nothing crimps a good road trip like getting cramped on cabin space. If you're hauling bicycles, consider investing in a trailer hitch. Subaru's trailer hitches come with options for storing bikes that let you bring along more outdoor gear on your trip. Additionally, a good rooftop carrier can free up tons of valuable legroom in the cabin, resulting in a more comfortable trip.
-
Don't Skimp on Safety
Even in the comfort of your own car, it's important to observe safety practices. A $10 can of tire sealant be a life saver if you pop a flat tire in a place where it's difficult to change the wheel. It's also important to carry around personal protective gear wherever you go. Make sure that you stock enough masks for everyone in the car, along with gloves and hand sanitizer for situations where you'll be interacting with the public. 
-
After a year like 2020, it feels like we've all collectively earned a good road trip. Whatever the future has in store, we can all agree that the best place to experience it is driving down the open road. If you're looking for the right vehicle to turn your road trip into a full-on adventure, swing by Beyer Subaru and we'll help you find the perfect car.

At the foundation, or should we say chassis, of Beyer Subaru is a desire to bring drivers in the greater Alexandria, VA area an assortment of new and used cars capable of transforming everyday commutes into something a little more extraordinary. This is why we sell only sell new Subaru models such as the Forester, Impreza, Outback, Legacy, and mint-condition used cars.

But, that simply wasn't enough. So, in addition to our new and used car inventories renowned across Washington DC and we decided to add a Subaru service center commanded by a team of experts hand-picked for their knowledge, passion and promise to treat every car as if it was their own.... And because we know there are still people set on doing it themselves: we added a genuine Subaru parts shop.

The logic? We want to make your life easier - put everything under one roof. We also want to help ensure that the extraordinary experience of owning a new Subaru stands the test of time. Buying a new car is, after all, a serious investment. Which brings us to our custom-crafted car loan and lease options. We know the numbers don't add up the same unless we add your circumstances and financial goals into the equation.

Are you ready to be treated as you should be? As an individual? Yes. Well, then visit Beyer Subaru today. Conveniently located at 7416, Richmond HWY, we are just 10 minutes down the road from Old Town, Alexandria.
