While emergency personnel do their best to reach stranded motorists as quickly as possible, inclement weather or other factors may delay them from arriving in a timely fashion. Being prepared by keeping a winter survival kit in your trunk can give you peace of mind and will prove invaluable if you're ever in an accident or break down in the winter.

Fill a waterproof tote with useful items like a cell phone charger, jumper cables, a first aid kit, water, a flashlight, tools and snacks. A thick blanket, winter clothing like hats, gloves and boots and sand for traction may also prove useful. There are also useful items to round out your kit that you can keep in your vehicle year-round, like roadside flares, fix-a-flat sealant, a fire extinguisher and a tire pressure gauge.

If you're looking for a vehicle that will be dependable and navigate snowy roads with ease, stop by The Car Store, where you can test drive one of the many winter-ready models we have available.
