Tips For Safe Driving This Winter

Subaru are meant for the snow, which is why so many drivers around Keene choose a Subaru over the competition. Even with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, we have a couple of helpful tips for safe winter driving to make sure you get home safely.

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives Keene drivers confidence behind the wheel with unmatched traction and control by supplying power to all four wheels evenly. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive also shifts power from wheels with less traction to wheels with more. In addition to a commanding grip on the road, it is always a good idea to plan ahead, be cautious, and be prepared for anything.

  • Planning Ahead: We recommend checking the weather frequently as conditions can change rapidly in our area. If bad weather is coming our way be sure to give yourself a little extra time to account for changing road conditions and other drivers. As many other drivers do, start your Subaru on extra cold days to give the engine a minute or two to warm up before throwing it into gear.
  • Slow & Steady: Even when the roads may look clear there is a strong possibility there could be black ice covering the road. During the winter it is important to make sure your brakes are in good shape and you have proper tires. When following other vehicles be sure to give them a little extra room in case you have to slam on the brakes and begin to slide. When going uphill do your best to not stop and not to power up the hill at full speed.
  • Emergency Kit: It can never hurt to be prepared for anything. In case of emergency's it is a good idea to have an extra blanket or two in your Subaru along with jumper cables, road flares or reflector triangles, portable phone charger, flashlight and batteries.
  • If your Subaru is in need of a little service be sure to give our service center a call today and we will get you in as soon as possible.
