Tackle Winter Roads With Ease in Your Toyota

The winter holiday season is synonymous with travel for many people. Whether it's a road trip to visit family and friends or just a quick jaunt across town to deliver cookies or a gift, your car needs to be reliable regardless of the demands of the holidays or the weather.

If you're lucky enough to live in a temperate climate, you probably won't have to deal with more than the occasional rain shower, but for many drivers, the holiday season means snowy, slippery roads. Toyota vehicles like the Highlander, Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner and RAV4 can tackle icy surfaces with ease thanks to their all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive transmissions and sturdy construction. Inside, Toyota winter packages with heated seats can make your ride more comfortable. The Avalon and Land Cruiser are two vehicles that come with heated seats as a standard feature, with many more vehicles offering it as an option.

Optimize Your Winter Travels With a New Toyota in Thousand Oaks

If you're planning on doing a lot of driving during inclement weather, it's good to winterize your car with an emergency kit containing useful cold weather items in it. In addition to a set of jumper cables, a flashlight, emergency flares, spare batteries, tire sealant and tools, you'll want to add a blanket to keep you warm while waiting for help, a folding shovel to dig out of deep snow or slippery mud, and some cat litter for its weight and its usefulness in improving traction if you get stuck on a slippery surface.

Whether your Toyota is a sedan, SUV or pickup truck, getting it ready for winter will improve its ability to handle whatever weather comes its way. Switch from summer tires to all-seasons if you live in a temperate climate or winter tires if your area gets plenty of snow. Check the wiper blades for any cracks or brittle areas, and trade them for a brand new set that can handle increased rain, slush or snow. If your temperatures fall below freezing, make sure your battery can handle sparking a cold engine by testing it for readiness.
