Which Cars are Safest to Drive These Last Weeks of Winter

February 7th, 2011

Spring is almost here and even though the sun is shining when you look out the window, a few more snow storms are expected to fall and when everything looks better, you realize winter is still here!

The top recommended cars to drive in snow are: Audi A8/S8, Subaru Outback 3.6 R Limited and as expected Volvo XC90.

Since most of us don’t drive one of the above cars, here are a few tips for safer driving the remaining weeks of Winter:

  • 1. In an extreme storm don’t drive unless it’s absolutely necessary.
  • 2. Wait until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had time to work.
  • 3. Decrease your speed and allow at least 3 car lengths between the car in front of you.
  • 4. Brake gently, you will loose control if your wheels lock up.
  • 5. Down shift to control your speed instead of breaking.
  • 6. If stuck rock gently back and forth, don’t spin your wheels.
  • 7. Keep warm clothes in your vehicle throughout the winter in case of emergency.
  • 8. If stranded in a remote area, do not leave your car unless you know where you are. Your vehicle will protect you from the elements.
  • 9. Always keep your gas tank at least 1/2 full, you never know when you’ll need extra gas.
  • 10. Pack a “survival” kit should you be stranded and always be sure you have a shovel, anti-freeze, jumper cables and other emergency equipment.
