With snow and ice descending across much of the country this week, motorists might appreciate a refresher on how to avoid getting felled by Old Man Winter. Well, we have a flurry (pun totally intended) of content for you. Cars.com’s page on winter driving tips and safety advice has more than a dozen articles on ownership, preparedness and shopping advice for when the weather turns cold enough for Bernie’s mittens.
Need to know whether to warm up your car in the winter? (Short answer: Usually not.) How to free it from a snowbank or ice patch? (Create a rocking momentum, among other things.) What happens with tire pressure? (It falls, but there’s more to the story.) Advice on some winter-friendly cars to buy next time you’re shopping? (Not all of them are SUVs.) We’ve checked all of those boxes, and we have even more articles about winter car care and cold-weather preparedness.
