Prep your new Toyota in Orlando for your winter holiday trip!

Christmas is just a few days away – can you believe it? If your family and loved ones live far away, then it’s understandable you’d want to travel and see them during this holiday season. However, the roads will not just be busy with travelers during this time of year, but depending on where you’re driving then it’s possible you might run into some rough weather! At Toyota of Orlando, we want to make sure that everyone has as many tools as possible so that they can be sure to arrive at their destination safely. 

Arrive at your destination safely in your new Toyota in Orlando!

No matter where you’re travelling, it’s important to make sure you’re prepared for the trip you have planned. Otherwise you could run into unexpected issues that can put you behind schedule, or delay your trip altogether. 
  • Know your route: Have you taken a few minutes to map out which roads you plan to take? With the winter season in full swing, it’s good to take a few seconds to check the route you have in mind to make sure no roads are closed. However, last-minute closures or traffic changes aren’t an issue if you have the Toyota Entune System in your new Toyota. It provides up-to-date information on changes that happen in traffic AND the weather so you can adjust your driving plans as you go!
  • Stay hydrated: Did you know that dehydration can lead to fatigue and reduced alertness? Make sure you have plenty of water to take with you while you’re on the road. It’s important to make sure you’re aware of your surroundings, especially if you’re headed into an area that you’ve been before. 
  • Have a winter travel safety kit: Having an emergency kit in your new Toyota in Orlando is important, but is it prepped for winter? If you live in Florida most of the year, then it’s possible your Orlando Toyota’s emergency kit may be needing some winter materials such as an ice scraper and brush, cat litter to use as a traction aide in snowy and icy conditions, and a can of lock de-icer. 
  • Skid recovery: If you’re not familiar with driving on icy roads, then it’s important to know how to handle these snowy conditions. When it comes to recovering from skidding, it’s best to steer your car into the direction you want to and to not touch the brakes. Trying to stomp on the brakes can cause them to lock up, which is a situation you definitely want to avoid.
