"Car trouble brings an abrupt end to vacation plans. The situation usually means more than just a repair bill. It can involve towing charges, lodging, and possibly a rental car.  Add to that, the cost of extra phone calls, meals, and general inconvenience, and the ordeal becomes expensive"-Car Care Council

A maintenance check up can't guarantee you won't have problems, but it will certainly avoid the preventable and give you peace of mind.
