Many people will be hitting the roads throughout the winter season for a road trip. Whether you are visiting some beautiful parks for winter hiking adventures or you are driving to a location for the ultimate ski trip, your Ford vehicle can get you there.

Here at your local Ford dealership near Janesville, our Ford service team would like you to take along some handy tips with you on your winter road trip.

  1. Check out the local weather reports – Prior to leaving home, finding out what weather is expected will help you bring the right gear with you as well as anticipate potentially adverse road conditions.
  2. Have your vehicle in great working condition – The last thing you want is to find out that your battery needs a charge or that your tires are low on tread. Our Ford service team can make sure that you have everything in order for a safe, memorable road trip.
  3. Brush up on your winter driving techniques – Whether you are heading out in your Ford Focus or your Ford F-150, you should know how to drive should bad weather come your way. For example, always make sure that you leave enough distance in between you and any other vehicle in front of you on the road.
