Tens of Millions Are Hitting the Road for Thanksgiving

This year, AAA forecasts that as many as one million more motorists will drive at least 50 miles to celebrate Thanksgiving compared to last year. With 43.5 million people expected to hit the road between November 23 and November 27, 2016, the number of people traveling by car over Thanksgiving will increase by 1.6 percent this year.

With so many people taking to the road this Thanksgiving, you may see a driver or two stranded along the highway as you travel. Whether you drive a 2017 Audi A4 or another one of our capable, luxury vehicles, it’s wise to bring your car into our Audi service center before you head out of town so that you don’t end up stuck on the roadway. AAA is preparing to respond to more than 370,000 calls for help over the holiday weekend. The most common reasons people will call AAA for roadside assistance are expected to be failed batteries, flat tires, and lockouts.

While you can help eliminate one of those possibilities from negatively impacting your road trip by bringing a spare car key with you, we can help minimize the chances that a dead battery or a flat tire will force you to call for help. When you bring your car into our Audi dealership near Van Nuys, CA for a service appointment, we’ll check your battery to make sure it has enough output to get you to and from your destination. We’ll also check your tires to make sure they have enough tread on them and ensure they’re inflated the way they should be.

If you’re like tens of millions of other motorists, you’re getting ready to hit the road for the upcoming holiday. Make bringing your car into our Audi service center part of your preparations to make sure your vehicle is ready to handle your trip. Give us a call, go to our Schedule Service page, or visit Keyes Audi to schedule a service appointment today.
