Drive Safely This Winter Season

December 5th, 2018 by

As your Ann Arbor area Chrysler dealers, we care about your safety on the road, especially when it comes to driving in the sometimes treacherous winter weather conditions in Michigan. Not to worry, we have plenty of tips and info to help you have a safe and happy winter this year.

Regardless of the kind of car you’re driving, there are some risks associated with driving in the cold, ice, and snow. However, with a bit of preparation and extra care on your part, we can help you minimize that risk. Start with getting your vehicle ready for the cold weather with an oil change and any other needed routine maintenance.

Secondly, make sure your tires and brakes are ready for the winter weather conditions. (If they’re not, we will gladly help you with replacing them.) Next, make sure the gas tank is at least half full, and keep it that way at all times this winter. Not only will your car run better, but you’ll have a bit extra in case of a detour or emergency.

Next, make a winter preparedness kit. Emergency items such as a first aid kit, road flares, jumper cables, blankets, water, and flashlight can all make a huge difference to your safety if you’re stuck out in the cold or have any other vehicle-related emergency.

Lastly, take your time and drive carefully (under the speed limit) this winter. If you give yourself extra time, you can ensure your car is cleared off and warmed up, and then you can take extra care getting to your destination safely. There’s no reason to rush when it could put your safety at risk.

We wish you a happy and safe holiday season from our dealership in Michigan. We have many Jeep SUVs to choose from that do really great in the snow, so don’t hesitate to come to us if you’re in the market for a winter-ready SUV this year.
