Whether you’re the most veteran of winter drivers or you’ve just moved to a colder climate, it never hurts to review some winter driving tips when the season is right. This is especially true if you’ve recently started driving a new vehicle. Lots of modern cars, SUVs and trucks come with smart safety features designed to help drivers in extreme weather conditions.
You should definitely read the user’s manual to learn about what features your car has. But, if you’ve never driven your car in snow or ice, it’s a good idea to take it for a test drive in an empty parking lot before hitting the road. This way, you can get a feel for your new anti-lock brakes or your intelligent all-wheel drive.
While you’re experimenting with your car in a safe, open place, you’ll probably find that it’s difficult to do anything very quickly in the snow and ice. When driving in winter conditions, you should accelerate slowly to keep better traction and control. The same goes for coming to a stop. Rather than braking immediately, try first to gently lift your foot off of the gas to come to a gradual stop. Taking things slowly this winter will keep you in control of your vehicle and keep you and your family safe.
Stop by Two Rivers Ford before the winter weather hits and make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape!
A new car is great but it’s even better if you have a trade-in to go along with it. Throughout the process of determining whether you need a new car, the question “why trade in my car” may have popped up a few times. Here at Two Rivers Ford, we have the answers you’re looking for.
Cars are lasting longer and longer thanks to advances in engineering, manufacturing, design, and materials. Eventually, the time will come when it’s time for a new car. One of the benefits of having a trade-in is that the value of that car can be negotiated separately or deducted from the new car’s price. The price you get for your trade-in can vary but to determine you trade-in car’s value, consult Kelley Blue Book.
Trading a car in for a new model at a dealership saves time and money. The other alternative to trading a car in at a dealership is to sell it privately. Depending on the car, price, and area you live, that could take months and that’s not time many drivers have to spare. To get a new car quickly, take your trade-in to the dealership and drive off the lot in a new car.
