Prevent crashes in bad weather
Buy the right tires.
Install studless snow tires in the fall to get ready for the season with better traction. Check your owner’s manual to find out how often you need to replace your tires.3
Before traveling on main roads and highways, sharpen your skills after the first snowfall by driving in an empty parking lot.3
Check your owner’s manual to refamiliarize yourself with your vehicle’s features that can help prevent accidents, such as antilock brakes, electronic stability control, adaptive headlights, and lane departure warning. Be sure you understand beforehand how they perform on slippery roads.3
