Cold Weather Safety Tips Part 3 - Stuck in the snow | Luther Brookdale Mitsubishi

It happens at the most inconvenient time. You are ready to go, but your car isn’t ready to leave it’s spot in the frozen snow. The team at Luther Brookdale Mitsubishi dealer MN put together a list of a few things you can try to get your car going.  

  • Know your vehicle

It helps to know what kind of drivetrain your vehicle has. A 2015 Outlander Sport for sale in Hopkins has an All-Wheel Control option for every trim. If you know which wheels are working, you know which wheels need traction.

  • Use cardboard or your vehicle’s all-weather mats.

Lay cardboard or the all-weather mats closely behind the wheels of your vehicle. This will help them gain traction.

  • Put salt or cat litter on the snow or ice.

Salt and cat litter work perfectly to make the surface of the road less slippery.

  • Don’t spin your tires.

It might seem like a good idea to keep pressing the gas, and hope the wheels eventually gain traction. Spinning the wheels is only digging them deeper into the ice and snow. The best way to get your car out of a snowy spot is to use a slow “rocking” technique.

  • The “rocking” technique.

This technique involves slowly back-up, slowly move forward several times to help gain tractions.
