AAA suggests motorist get their cars checked out and tuned up before Thanksgiving holiday travel to avoid finding themselves stranded, according to a release.
"AAA recommends motorists use a simple checklist to determine their vehicle's fall and winter maintenance needs," said AAA Tire & Auto Manager Jon Bucher. "Many of the items on the list can be inspected by a car owner in less than an hour, but others should be performed by a certified technician."
