Subaru Superstore Offers Tips for Your Winter Road Trip

You may not ever see winter driving conditions here in Chandler, but a trip to Flagstaff or a neighboring state for ski season could present special winter driving hazards. Slick conditions can make driving stressful by reducing traction and requiring more stopping time. We want you to be safe no matter where the road takes you so we've provided answers to frequently asked winter driving questions.

What is a Safe Distance for Following in the Snow?

While stopping on dry roads may only take between 2 and 3 seconds, it may take much longer to stop in the snow. The reduced traction from icy roads could require between 8 and 10 seconds to stop fully, even in an AWD Subaru. That's why it's a good idea to keep as much distance from other drivers as you can. We also recommend easing into a stop by pressing and releasing the brakes in a controlled fashion rather than slamming and holding the brakes.

How Can I Winterize My Subaru?

Your Subaru is prepared for most conditions but there are a few ways to get even greater peace-of-mind in winter driving. Installing a set of winter tires is one way to boost the winter driving capabilities of your Subaru. It's also a good idea to check the condition of your wiper blades, HVAC system, and fluid levels so you know that your Subaru will run as expected if driving conditions change for the worse.
