Is Your Vehicle Summer Ready?
The summer season officially starts on June 21st. In Kansas City that means we can hopefully count on sunshine, barbecues and a nice vacation or two. Lots of American’s hit the road for destinations near and far to lakes, camping, sightseeing or even longer road trips to see all the wonders our country has to offer. Getting stranded on the side of the road or stuck at a car rental place with your summer plans ruined is the last thing you want to have happen.
