We realize that, during the holiday and winter season, many of our New Haven, CT customers will be making the trek to some far-away destinations in New England that might put them right into the thick of some wintry conditions. While it is true that our area does get its fair share of winter weather, traveling a long distance can be tricky when you throw in poor road conditions. The team at Napoli Nissan, located at 688 Bridgeport Avenue in Milford, CT, is here with some winter travel tips that we hope will make traveling this winter season safer and easier.

Prepping Your Vehicle

One of the first things Hamden, CT customers can do to prepare themselves for the winter months is to make sure their vehicle is prepared. Nissan has many vehicles that are great in the snow, but, without preparation, that only goes so far. Our service center can inspect your car battery, brakes, windshield wipers, fluids, and tires to make sure your vehicle is ready. Are you a Danbury, CT driver without snow tires? Our parts center can sell you a great set of winter tires. There are several parts specials that might help you save some money on these services. Are you in need of a better vehicle for winter travel? The Nissan lineup has many all-wheel drive cars, trucks, and SUVs and the finance center can help you find the current Nissan financing specials that might help make that a reality.

Traveling in Winter Weather

Fairfield, CT drivers who are planning on traveling some distance in snowy and icy conditions should make sure that they have what they need in a worst-case scenario. Some things you should make sure of before you leave home include:

  • Tires are properly inflated
  • Ensure you have at least a half-tank of gas
  • Make sure you have all your cold weather gear, including boots, water, food, a flashlight, and blankets

Drivers should also make sure that they follow some basic winter driving rules, including:

  • Don’t go out in a snowstorm if you don’t have to
  • Increase your following distance
  • Speed up and slow down slowly
  • Don’t speed up or stop on a hill
