Economy Nissan Winter Driving Tips

Winter is one of the most hazardous times for drivers. Not only do weather conditions create visual and driving hazards, but you could also be stranded with no power in the middle of a snowstorm. Driving in the winter can be very dangerous, especially in Colorado, so here at Economy Nissan in Durango, CO we have created Winter Driving Tips!

Winter Driving Tips

  1. Stick to the route you know best: sometimes it can be a good idea to check the web for current weather conditions before you leave for your daily commute. This way you can avoid accidents and if you get stuck, describe exactly where you are.
  2. Drink lots of water and eat lots of food: keep an extra water bottle and snacks in your vehicle in case you do become stuck somewhere. Dehydration in winter is very common and can also cause fatigue. If you are stranded in your car for a few hours it is best to have high-energy food available.
  3. Pack a winter travel safety bag: safety bags can come in handy when you least expect it. An extra phone, charged phone battery, heavy blankets, Advil, flashlight, matches, portable radio, first  aid kit, and even a map can help save your life.
  4. Slow down: leave early and don’t rush. Reducing speed by 50% is usually a good rule, as long as you are not going too slow and lose momentum.
  5. Use your lights: turning your lights on is a good idea to help others see you.
  6. Lighten up your grip: if you are too nervous you may start gripping your steering wheel to hard and lose control. Make sure to breath and keep a loose grip on the wheel.
  7. Schedule a car maintenance checkup: you will want to make sure your spark plugs are new, your battery is strong, lights are working properly and there are no cracks in your timing belt. For a full list visit our Economy Nissan Dealership or call (877)500-5904 for more information.
  8. If you are stuck, do not leave your vehicle:  it is best to stay as warm as possible. Do not chance getting lost in a snowstorm. Also, make sure that nothing is blocking your exhaust pipe so the carbon monoxide does not build up in your vehicle.

The best tip of all is to not travel in these hazardous conditions. Although, if you find you have to drive in these conditions make sure you are prepared. This knowledge and preparation could help save your life or even someone else’s.

Under the hood of the 2014 Nissan Rogue is a highly capable and efficient 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine, which while it pumps out 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, is still able to return a best-in-class 33 mpg highway.

Nissan believes that between the 2014 Rogue’s styling, performance, technology and price tag, it is ready to capitalize on an emerging vehicle segment.

“There is growing demand for compact SUVs around the world due to their user-friendly combination of right-sized exteriors, flexible interior utility and low environmental impact,” said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president of Sales and Marketing at Nissan North America, in a press release. “With this exciting, innovative, all-new design, Nissan is aggressively targeting increased sales and share in every market… Nissan has been able to add features and technologies while keeping prices affordable. No matter the specific market nameplate, it’s a guaranteed winner.”
