With the snow filled days of winter right around the corner, now is the time that most drivers are starting to prepare for the dangerous road conditions this weather can bring. When you have a Kia Sorrento or a used Kia Forte Koup in NJ, you will have to take the time to ensure the vehicle in question is in good shape. Statistics show that nearly 70% of all winter related injuries will take place in an automobile. Below are some of the things that you need to think about when trying to prepare yourself and your car for severe winter weather.

Essentials for Digging Your Car Out of Snow

There have been many reported cases of New Jersey area drivers skidding off of an icy road and having to spend the night in their car until help arrives. If you find yourself in a situation where you are stranded and unable to move your car due to ice, you will need to have the tools needed to survive. One of the best things that you can have in your vehicle during the winter months is a shovel. Having a shovel will allow you to dig out the snow around your tires and get back on the road in a hurry.

A Good Emergency Kit is Important

Having a roadside emergency kit that is filled with things like a flashlight, phone chargers and waterproof matches can come in handy in a situation where you are stranded on the side of an icy road. You will also need to pack things like a thicker winter coat and a multi-tool to help make this type of experience a bit more manageable.
