With temperatures dropping and snow accumulating, it’s time to think about your driving habits. Whether you’re an experienced winter driver or not, we have a few tips for you here at Lester Glenn Subaru. Your safety is important to us, so if you have any questions, feel free to give us a ring at 888-785-0675.
When’s the last time you visited the gas station? Since finding yourself in an unfortunate driving situation is more likely to happen during the winter, we recommend keeping your fuel tank as full as possible. This way, you can still run your heat and stay comfortable until help shows up. Reducing your speed and increasing your stopping distance helps you avoid a collision with another vehicle or ending up in a ditch. Your brakes might be working fine, but slippery roads can cause you to slide regardless.
Not to mention, it’s important that your tires are gripping the pavement as much as possible. If you can’t remember how old your tires are, it might be time for a new set, since they run out of tread over time. New brake fluid, pads, and windshield wiper blades are also suggested. Not to mention, a rough running engine with problems can also leave you stranded in the cold, so oil changes and repair work is a must before this winter progresses any further.
