A Basic Guide for Indianapolis Drivers: Handling Indiana's Worst Winter Driving Conditions in your Subaru
Whether you are headed out on a ski trip or commuting to work in wintry conditions while traveling to work in Indianapolis, few cars handle the snow better than a new Subaru. The vehicle’s All-Wheel-Drive system gives it superior handling in even the worst conditions that the Indiana's winter has to offer. This basic guide provides important information about handling Indiana's worst winter driving conditions in your Subaru.
Here’s a quick guide to getting the most out of your new or pre-owned Subaru during the winter season:
Take Advantage of All-Wheel-Drive
When the snow falls and the trails open up, be thankful you’re a Subaru owner. Your Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system provides a direct connection between the car’s engine and its wheels. And unlike other All-Wheel-Drive systems, Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system sends power to all four wheels at all times. That means you’ll enjoy superior traction and handling in a full range of conditions.
Stay Safe Out There
Make sure you're aware of what the driving conditions are before you leave the houst (and how they'll be in the future). When ice and snow hit, remember the number one rule of driving in slippery conditions: maintain your distance. While your Subaru may handle the snow well, remember that other vehicles can easily lose control. Drive slowly, deliberately, and defensively, especially in rush hour traffic.
Keep Track of Your Tires
Maintaining your tires is one of the most important things you can do to improve your vehicle’s handling in snowy conditions. Always be aware of the tread depth of your tires. If they are less than 1/16th of an inch in depth, it’s time to install replacements. Newer tires are equipped with tread bars to help you know when they’ve reached the end of their life span.
