Is there anything more greatly anticipated than the return of Spring in West Michigan?! After a particularly grueling winter this year, with snowstorm after polar vortex after snowstorm, the first sightings of a robin returning to the greater Grand Rapids area feels like a reprieve with the promise of warmer days on the horizon. But with the change in weather comes a change in what your vehicle needs to give you its best performance and now is the perfect time to get your vehicle Spring ready…

 

Give It A Wash

Winter in Michigan is hard on the body of your vehicle… the snow, the slush, the grime but mostly the salt put down on the roads to help melt snow or ice and improve traction for vehicles on the road. But that repeated exposure to road salt can do a terrible thing to your vehicle’s body and undercarriage. The result can be rusted or corroded exhaust systems, brake systems and muffler.  Rust occurs when oxygen and moisture combine on metal but salt can accelerate that process. Taking the time to get regular car washes can help prevent this from happening but washing your vehicle once the weather has cleared is important to make sure all of the salt is washed off of your entire vehicle.

 

Swap Out Your Tires

If there’s one thing Michiganders know it’s that the weather in Grand Rapids is a fickle thing. Too often, we put away our snow and ice scrapers only to have the swift and fierce hand of Mother Nature swat us for our eager mistake. So it’s no wonder why people question when and if they should swap out their winter tires for summer tires? The quick answer is yes, you definitely should change your tires as the temperatures grow warmer and here’s why. Snow tires are designed to perform at their best when temperatures are below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below while summer tires work best at temps between 50-100 degrees Fahrenheit. So as temps begin to consistently climb higher during the day, it’s time to think about swapping out your winter tires for summer or all terrain.

And while you’re paying attention to those tires, take the time to check their condition. Check your tire’s air pressure to make sure they are inflated to the manufacturer’s specifications.  Doing so can improve gas mileage and prevent tire failure while you’re driving.  In addition to tire pressure, you’ll want to inspect the overall condition of all four tires for uneven wear and tread depth.  Worn tires can negatively impact your braking distance and will certainly affect your tires ability to maintain traction on the roadway.  Before heading out on your trip, make sure your tread depth is not below 4/32.  An easy way to make sure you have the recommended amount of tread is with the quarter test.  Flip a quarter upside down with Washington’s head facing you.  If his head is partially covered by the tire, your tires still have adequate tread.  If not, it’s time to replace them.

 

Get New Blades

April showers may bring May flowers but for your vehicle, they can make it extremely difficult to see. Rain showers and storms are frequent in Spring in the greater Grand Rapids and your windshield wipers have an important job to do while you’re out on the road. To make sure the harsh winter weather hasn’t taken its toll on your wiper blades before you encounter the inclement weather Spring has to dish out, start by looking for any wear on your blades including tears, rips or cracks on the rubber.  Then test your wiper blades with washer fluid to see if there’s any streaking or pulling away from the windshield to make sure they will work properly when you need it most.  Replace the windshield wiper blades if you notice any of these things to ensure your windshield stays clear from any kind of precipitation or debris.

Our goal at Broadmoor Motors has always been to help people find a great vehicle at a fair price but with today’s rising costs of vehicles, we began to wonder… is there another way to help our customers get even more for their hard-earned dollars when purchasing a pre-owned vehicle?  This question led to a discovery about the hidden value of vehicles that were previously stolen and then recovered but given a salvage title.

Now, we know what you’re thinking… salvage title has to mean the vehicle received irreparable damage and should not be considered as a purchase. But the shocking truth is that many stolen and recovered salvage title vehicles have little to no reported damage at all!! Not even an accident report. That fact combined with a focus on a pressure-free environment at Broadmoor Motors and doing what’s right for our customers allows us to provide a great vehicle at a terrific deal with stolen and recovered salvage-titled vehicles.

So why do stolen and recovered vehicles even receive a salvage title if they weren’t involved in an accident or damaged in any way?

Well, that depends on each state’s requirements for retitling it as stolen and recovered clean title or as a stolen and recovered salvage title. Additionally, it can depend greatly on the time it took to recover it, which for many insurance companies a vehicle becomes salvaged immediately after it is reported as missing while others have a set recovery time before it becomes salvage. Essentially, a stolen and recovered vehicle could have little to no damage and still, the insurance company is required to give it a Stolen and Recovered title depending on the state the incident happened.

And therein lies the hidden potential for buyers to receive these surprising common benefits to buying a stolen & recovered salvaged title at Broadmoor Motors…

 

You Can Save Thousands Over A Clean Title Vehicle

Stolen & Recovered Salvage Title Vehicles often have lower miles and have had NO Damage done to them and yet you can save THOUSANDS on their purchase price at BMG!! This is due to the perceived reduction in value while there truly is none and this perception of salvage titled vehicle allows for us to offer a discount on average between $2000-$7000!

 

You Can Get A Newer Vehicle With More Options

More often than not, stolen and recovered vehicles are newer vehicles that come with a bevy of great options at Broadmoor Motors! We pass on older stolen and recovered salvage titled vehicles with more damage to offer our customers simply the newer vehicles with little to no damage filled with great options we know are popular.

 

Depreciate Slower Than Clean Title Vehicles

Stolen and recovered vehicles depreciate at a slower rate than traditional vehicles because their value has already dropped at their initial salvaging.  For example, the clean title vehicle someone purchased for $32,000 would be expected to depreciate $7,000 in a year while the stolen and recovered salvage title vehicle you bought for $25,000 and already saved $7,000 on the purchase price would have only lost $5,000 of its value! Meaning, when you’re ready to sell it, it will have retained more of its value than a clean title AND you would have saved yourself $9,000 over the clean title in the first year.

 

All Vehicles Can Be Financed And Insured

Often times there is a misconception that stolen and recovered salvage titled vehicles cannot be insured or financed but that’s simply not the case! It is possible to secure financing on these vehicles as well as insuring them while they are on the road after purchase.

 

Salt-Free

95% of the vehicles that Broadmoor Motors offers that are stolen and recovered have never seen a harsh Michigan winter and therefore have been spared the harsh treatment from salt on the roads which can corrode paint and parts.

 

Buy Back Program At Broadmoor Motors

Even if you decide not to drive the stolen and recovered salvage titled vehicle until the wheels fall off, you still have options at Broadmoor Motors. While most dealerships and private party buyers will only offer you half of the worth, BMG is happy to take your stolen and recovered vehicle back in trade when you’re ready to move on.

For many parents, having a young, inexperienced driver on the road can be one of the most stressful times in raising their children. Inexperience coupled with impulsiveness not only increase teenagers risk of being involved in an automobile accident but actually make them three times as likely to be in a car accident compared to adult drivers. When you factor in that car accidents are the leading cause of death for ages 16-19 years old, it’s no wonder that parents are looking for more safety strategies for their young drivers.

 

Buckle It Up

There’s no doubt about it… seatbelts save lives and your teen wearing one regardless if they are driving or not, decreases their risk of being seriously injured in the event they are involved in an accident. No matter if they are sitting in the front or back seat of a vehicle, seatbelts just make sense to wear. Stress to your young driver that they should wear one every time they get in a vehicle, no matter who is driving.

 

No Distractions

You don’t have to be a teen to fall into driving while distracted but teens are even more likely to be involved in an accident when they are using their phone to make a call or text, four times more to be exact. Help your teen reduce their chances of becoming another young statistic by removing the chances that they will become distracted by their cell phone and teach them to put them away while they are behind the wheel. Keeping it in the glove box, bag in the backseat or shut off completely.

 

Enforce Graduation Drivers Licensing Rules

All 50 states have some form of a Graduated Drivers License program which gradually provides opportunities to teens to improve their experience and skill. In Michigan, Level 1 Learner’s License offers new drivers a chance to drive behind the wheel while they are under the guidance of their licensed parent, guardian or an authorized adult over 21. Level 2 Intermediate License allows teens to drive independently but restricts hours at night that can be driven. Studies show that GDL programs have dramatically reduced serious accidents in our youth but parent support is a vital key to that success. Be sure to reinforce at home what the law already has set for guidelines to keep your child safer when they climb behind the wheel.

 

Limit Number Of Passengers

Studies have shown time and time again that as the number of passengers increases, so does the risk of a teenage driver having an accident. Michigan’s GDL limits the number to one passenger unless it is to or from work or an authorized activity, are an immediate family member or accompanied by a parent, guardian or a licensed driver over 21 or older designated by a parent or guardian. As with all of the GDL guidelines, reinforce this standard to keep your young driver safer.

 

 

Monitor Driving

Today’s technology makes it easier than ever before to monitor your teen driver from a distance. Apps like Life 360, Canary or Safe Driver allow parents to see if their driver is using their phone to make calls, text or access social media while they are driving. In addition, these apps can notify parents if the driver goes over set speed limits, hard brakes or accelerates too quickly. But seeing for yourself from time to time is still recommended. Even though they have their license, parents should still ride with their young driver to evaluate themselves how safely they are operating while driving.

 

 

Be An Example

Set the bar high with not only your child’s driving but with your own! Too often, parents expect their teens to drive safer than what they do themselves. If you want your teen to wear their seatbelt, drive defensively, put their phone away and just drive than do so yourself to be the example you want them to model themselves after while they’re behind the wheel.

Themed rooms create an ambiance in which the story unfolds and the variety of problems allow different members the opportunity to solve a piece of the puzzle pie. Escape rooms are a great way to test your critical thinking in a fun, family-friendly group dynamic.

In the world of Salvage Title vehicles, not all are created equal. The good news is that a Stolen and Recovered Salvage title is the safest option of them all and offer a variety of benefits to the buyer without the risks that are customary of other salvage title vehicles. To understand salvage titles and their risk, it’s important to understand first why a vehicle may have been given one.

 

Salvage vehicles are ones that are deemed a total loss by an insurance company for any of the following reasons:

  1. Collision damage more than the worth from an accident
  2. Flood damage (will be indicated on the title)
  3. Someone died in the vehicle
  4. Stolen and recovered

 

Unlike damage done from a flood or a collision from an accident, stolen & recovered vehicles are not necessarily deemed a salvage due to repair costs being more than the vehicle’s worth and often times are given a salvage title due to the time it took to recover the vehicle or because of each state’s regulations. In fact, many have little to no damage at all!   But when you’re considering whether or not to purchase a salvage title vehicle, it is important to watch out for the following…

 

They Don’t Disclose Its History

Whether or not the vehicle was deemed a salvage through extensive damage or had none at all, a dealership or a private individual should be upfront and honest about it being a salvage title and why it was deemed that way. If they aren’t willing to be open and honest about it from the get-go, it leaves you wondering what else they could know about it but don’t feel obligated to tell you regarding the vehicle?

 

They Won’t Show You Before Pictures

A dealership that is selling a salvage title vehicle should be able to provide photos of the vehicle when they purchased it from the auction so you can see for yourself the condition it was in before they made any repairs. We highly recommend asking to see these pictures before buying it and if they are unwilling to show them to you, you might want to consider walking away from the deal.

 

They Offer No Warranty On The Vehicle

One of the benefits of buying a pre-owned vehicle from a dealership over a private seller is getting a warranty with the vehicle. While many used car dealerships do not offer any kind of warranty on their vehicles, Broadmoor Motors is happy to provide a 30 Day Warranty on our vehicles, including salvage title vehicles! If you are considering buying a salvage title vehicle, we suggest buying one from a dealership who is willing to stand behind it with a warranty.

 

They Have Poor Reviews

It seems like a no brainer to us, but buying from a dealership you can trust means at the very least that you’ll be buying a reliable vehicle and getting a fair price on it in the process.  While many buyers take the time to research the safety and reliability of a car, they often overlook checking out the dealer they’re interested in purchasing that very vehicle from.  Today’s world of online reviews makes it that much easier to see what past customers have said about their experience while offering you a better idea of the environment you’ll be walking into.  Knowing you can believe and trust a car dealer is always important but it can be especially important when purchasing a salvage vehicle when you need to feel confident they are disclosing all of the pertinent information regarding its prior condition. Broadmoor Motors prides itself on providing a variety of good vehicles, at a fair price and giving our customers an incredible, pressure-free shopping experience in the process. We also encourage everyone to check out our Reviews on Google!

 

They Don’t Offer To Buy It Back

Often times, prospective buyers shy away from salvage title vehicles because they are afraid they will have trouble reselling the vehicle someday in the future. Broadmoor Motors understands that concern but it’s not one you need to have if you purchase a salvage vehicle from us. Because we are very familiar with the history of the vehicle already, we are happy to buy it back from you when the time comes for you to move onto a newer vehicle.

Whether you’re thinking about purchasing a new or used vehicle, taking a prospective car for a test drive before you buy it can be one of the easiest ways to help you avoid possible frustrations and costly repairs in the future. But did you know that a surprising 1 in 6 people are opting to skip out on taking the vehicle they thinking about buying for a simple test drive before buying it? When you consider that a vehicle purchase is often the second most expensive purchase a person will make in their life, it seems crazy that they wouldn’t spend an hour or so driving it before signing on the bottom line to make sure it fits not only their lifestyle but that it doesn’t have any immediate warning signs for issues to come. Here is what a good test drive can tell you about a used vehicle…

 

How It Handles

Vehicles, depending on their make, model and style, can have large variances in how they perform on the road. Does the car accelerate nicely and shift smoothly from gear to gear or are the changes jerky? Does it brake quickly or are the brakes too sensitive? Is the steering responsive or is it too touchy where you’re likely to oversteer with minimal changes?

 

If It Fits Your Lifestyle

The car, truck, SUV or minivan you think you want may actually be far different than the type of vehicle you actually need. Being honest with yourself about how much space, functionality and extras you need in a vehicle can help avoid frustrations later on after the purchase. Do you need it to be a work vehicle that requires a lot of storage? Will you need it to have towing capabilities and if so, how heavy? Is an All Wheel Drive or 4 Wheel Drive vehicle necessary for where you drive or the type of climate you live in? What is the minimum seating requirements you need to drive the vehicle day in and day out for years to come? Only after understanding these things before you take a vehicle out for spin, can you truly start to question if the vehicle you are test driving checks all of the necessary boxes.

 

If There Are Mechanic Issues

While some people are skipping the test driving process entirely, too many are choosing to take too short of a test drive. 50% of Americans say they only test drove a vehicle 30 minutes or less before they decided to purchase it but that may not be enough time to tell you all of the information you wished you had before spending thousands of dollars on a vehicle! Driving a vehicle for longer and over different types of conditions such as stop and go traffic and highway driving can show you much more. While you are on the road be on the lookout for these warning signs:

Indicator Lights

  • Engine Lights – Indicates a problem with the vehicle’s systems and should never be ignored.  Reasons for it engaging vary from a loose gas cap to a malfunctioning sensor to a faulty catalytic converter, with costs ranging from nothing but a little bit of elbow grease to thousands.
  • Oil Pressure Light: Indicates there is a problem with your oil pressure and can be caused by low oil, defective oil pressure sending unit, faulty oil pump, warning light switch or oil pressure gauge.
  • Temperature Gauge: Indicates your engine is running too hot or overheating.  This should not happen, even during stop & go traffic or when it’s hot if the coolant system is working properly.
  • Low Battery Light: Indicates a battery charging problem. This could indicate a problem with the battery itself, a problem with the alternator which recharges it or more commonly, an alternator belt.
  • Brake Warning Light: Indicates there is something wrong with the brake hydraulic system.  This could be as easy as forgetting to release the parking brake to hydraulic pressure being lost in one of the brake systems to brake fluid in the master cylinder being dangerously low.

It’s a situation no driver wants to find themselves in… an accident. Even if you’re an experienced driver or have just received your license for the first time, it’s important to know what steps to take immediately afterward to ensure your safety and to make sure you’re complying with Michigan state law.

 

Stop

Not only is it the right thing to do, but it’s also your legal obligation to stop after being in an accident despite how severe or minor it is and despite it involving another vehicle or a stationary object and regardless if it is on public or private property. You still need to stop to assess the situation!  Doing so will give you the opportunity to decide if any further action is needed.

 

Check For Injuries

The very first thing to do after an accident has occurred is to see if you or your passengers are injured. If someone is seriously injured, try not to move them unless they are unsafe where they are currently are, then seek medical help by dialing 911 yourself or asking a nearby bystander to do so if you can not.

 

Move To Safety or Activate Hazard Lights

If you are not too injured and if your vehicle is able to be moved out of the flow of traffic and into a parking lot or shoulder, do so to remove yourself and others out of harm’s way. If you are too hurt to move or if your vehicle is disabled, be sure to turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights and do not stand in the roadway while waiting for help.

 

Call Police If Necessary

Michigan law requires drivers to report any accident that results in death, injury or damages over $1000 to property, and if it damaged an unattended vehicle or other property. If the accident is serious, the police should be notified immediately. Failing to do so in an accident with no injury could result in a hit and run accident that leads to fines, a suspended license and a misdemeanor conviction while it can lead to much more serious consequences if there injuries including a felony conviction up to 15 years and a $10,000 fine. Once the police arrive, they will gather the necessary information to fill out a report.

If there are not seriously injuries and police are not able to make it due to high volumes of accidents due to inclement weather, it is possible to gather the necessary information and report the accident later at a local police department. Chances are you will need a police report to file a claim with your insurance company.

 

Exchange Information

It’s important to gather and provide the following information with the other driver involved in the accident:

  • Full name and contact information
  • Insurance company and policy number
  • Driver’s license and license plate number
  • Color, make and model of the vehicle(s) involved
  • Location of accident

 

 

Document The Accident

Your insurance company and the police report will require information regarding the accident. Be sure to gather it all while you are there to avoid any complications or a loss of claim. Details should include:

  • Name and insurance information of everyone involved
  • Description of the crash, including how many people were in both cars and which direction the vehicles were headed
  • Details about damages and injuries
  • Photos of damage and video statements
  • Diagram of the accident scene

 

File Claim With Insurance

Michigan is a No-Fault state and as such means that each individual will carry their own policy that will cover the cost of repairs to their vehicle, lost earnings and any medical costs that may be incurred despite who is at fault for the accident. Because of this, each individual can decide for themselves if they would like to make a claim against their own insurance company in the event of an accident. While it may seem obvious to file a claim where there is significant damage, it might not be worth it to file one where there was minimal damage or if it is less than your deductible.

Today’s vehicles are safer than and that is by no accident. Since the 1960s, car manufacturers have been continuously working to add more safety features to keep drivers and passengers alike, safer inside of automobiles. This process has become two-fold, beginning with trying to safeguard people in the event of an accident and now has transformed into using technology to help prevent them before they even happen. Below are some of the ways manufacturers continue on this quest by expanding on previous advancements and with exciting, new technology.

 

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive cruise control is an intuitive technology that utilizes the cruise control already equipped in vehicles with sensors and computing power to adjust the speed of your vehicle to go faster or slower according to the speed of the vehicle in front of you. Advanced systems can even slow or stop your vehicle when needed in traffic jams and then accelerate for you as traffic allows.

 

Forward Collision Warning

These systems are designed to scan the road ahead to alert drivers of a hazard in the way in order to give them more time to attempt to avoid it.  They do this with warning tones, haptic feedback and/or visual alerts to let you know there is danger ahead.

 

Automatic Emergency Braking

In conjunction, Automatic Emergency Braking systems alert drivers to the dangers of an imminent crash and helps apply maximum braking capacity of the car in order to avoid it. Sometimes referred to as Front Collision Warning Systems, this automation can vary between manufacturers as to what it detects, including other vehicles that are slowing, those that are stopped and with some, even pedestrians.

 

Blind Spot Detection

Blind Spot Detection utilizes radar sensors to monitor the area directly to the side of the vehicle and behind it, then alerts the driver that there is a vehicle in those locations in order to avoid a collision caused by changing lanes. The alert is commonly showcased with a yellow indicator in the side mirror, lit when it senses a car is in the blindspot and flashes if the turn signal has been activated.

 

Automatic High Beams

This innovative feature automatically switches your high beams to low when approaching another vehicle regardless if it is in the same lane ahead of you or coming towards you. Additionally, Automatic High Beams will turn your high beams back on after they have passed and no one is ahead of you any longer.

 

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist alerts drivers when their vehicle is crossing lane markings by audible, visual or haptic warnings and offers assistance with corrective steering and/or braking from the vehicle automatically.

 

Rear Cross Traffic Assist

This safety feature assists you while your vehicle is backing up and going less than 5mph. The Rear Cross Traffic Assist system does this by detecting other vehicles approaching from the right and left rear of the vehicle and give you a warning by flashing a warning indicator light in the side mirrors and giving a warning sound.

 

Rear Automatic Braking System

Rear Automatic Braking Systems help the driver avoid an accident by detecting stationary objects when backing up and gives warnings to the driver, even applying the brakes if necessary to avoid hitting them.

 

Lane Centering Assist

Lane centering is a similar safety feature to lane departure warning, but rather than simply warn the driver that they are crossing the lane edge, it keeps the car centered in the lane. Together with adaptive cruise control, this feature can allow unassisted driving for a few seconds.

 

Facial Recognition Software

Facial Recognition Software watches the driver’s face to make sure they have their eyes on the road and if the system detects an inattentive pilot, it will sound an alert and turn off the adaptive cruise control.

 

Post Collision Braking

This is a passive safety feature which automatically applies the brakes after it detects the airbag sensors have released and that a collision is occurring during the initial impact of a crash. By applying the brakes right away, the system prevents further damage and injury which could occur through the continuing motion of the vehicle due to the crash momentum.

 

Pre-safe System

It may sound straight out of a science fiction novel but Pre-safe Systems works to prepare and protect passengers in an accident, before it even happens. The system is able to sense when a collision is unavoidable thanks to sensors placed throughout the vehicle, which function with multiple other safety systems. Once an incoming collision is detected, the systems act to prepare you for it by tightening front seat belts, adjusting front head restraints and emitting a “pink sound” to prepare your eardrums for the loud sound of a crash.

Driving in West Michigan during the winter can be challenging and many car buyers turn to purchasing a vehicle that can give them an edge on the snow-covered Grand Rapids roads. Once a less common occurrence, 4WD and AWD vehicles now make up 45% of vehicles on the road today and their added power in slippery conditions. While shopping for a vehicle, you might hear the words All Wheel Drive and 4 Wheel Drive used interchangeably but are they really the same thing? Deciding which one works best for your needs depends largely on knowing what the benefits and drawbacks are to each before choosing.

 

AWD

There are two different types, full-time AWD and part-time AWD, which work similarly in function with no input from the driver by delivering torque to all four wheels via differentials, multiple clutches and viscous couplings. Full-time AWD delivers this continuously while part-time offers it only as needed and drives in Front Wheel Drive when it is not.

Benefits

One of the biggest advantages to having an All Wheel Drive vehicle is the peace of mind in not having to worry about turning 4WD on and off manually.  Since it’s not always easy to tell when the road conditions are slippery, All Wheel Drive vehicles take the guesswork out of the equation.  Because AWD vehicles are always monitoring how much traction each wheel has at the moment, it can allocate power when and where it needs it most.  This advancement in technology has created vehicles that are better at providing sportier handling on all types of road conditions including snow, ice, rain and sleet.

Drawbacks

While AWD vehicles do improve traction, they simply cannot afford the same towing and hauling capabilities that many 4WD vehicles can provide in lower speeds, nor do they perform the same in off-road situations. In addition, they add weight and complexity to the engine’s systems which increases their price tag and can lower their fuel efficiency.

 

4WD

Like All Wheel Drive, 4 Wheel Drive vehicles are designed to send torque to all of the vehicle’s wheels at the same time to increase traction when needed. But most 4WD vehicles require someone to manually switch them into this drive while offering the ability to switch between two ranges of 4WD which are HI or LO. 4WD Hi allows your vehicle to send power to all four wheels while going faster over slippery surfaces such as snowy roads, loose dirt, ice or gravel. It just provides less power to each of the wheels while doing so. But if you need to tow something that is heavy or need to get over an obstacle, you have the capability to shift to 4WD Lo which gives more power to the wheels but moves the wheels at a slower speed.

Benefits

While All Wheel Drive vehicles also provide torque to all wheels over Front Wheel Drive, 4 Wheel Drive systems tend to be more robust and can generally handle more rugged terrain over AWD. 4WD can improve traction in dangerous and difficult driving conditions such as snow, ice, loose gravel, over rocks and uneven surfaces.

Drawbacks

As with their All Wheel Drive counterparts, 4×4 vehicles have more complicated drive shaft systems, making them more expensive to buy and to repair if they become broken. Similarly, the cost of driving a 4 Wheel Drive can be more costly since it takes more fuel to power all four wheels at one time.  Additionally, 4WD can feel awkward at times, such as in turns while engaged, since all the wheels will turn turning at the same rate of speed but trying to cover different rates of the ground. But while 4×4 is engaged, the tires are not permitted to turn at different speeds and this leads to that ‘jerky’ feeling you may have experienced before.

 

 

While they may not be right for everyone’s lifestyle or budget, All Wheel Drive and 4×4 Vehicles continue to gain popularity in different styles, makes and models.  If you find yourself searching for your next used SUV, minvan, truck or car to fit your needs and your budget, we invite you to check out our current inventory of Used Trucks, Vans, SUVs and Cars.

Handing over the keys to the family car to your teen can be a scary prospect to many parents but doing so when the roads are covered with ice, sleet or snow is even tougher.  While you can’t safeguard against every situation they may encounter while behind the wheel, preparing them for winter driving is certainly a necessity.  Here are tips for your teen & winter driving… everything they need to know in the snow.

 

Getting The Vehicle Ready

It might be second nature to you but to your teen, knowing how to safely warm up their vehicle before taking off or how to safely remove ice and snow from the vehicle could be something they’ve never even thought about! When starting their vehicle to idle, talk to them about the dangers of doing so in an enclosed space like a garage with the door down.  And while fuel injected engines do not need to warm up for extended periods of time like the old carburetor relics of the past it can become necessary to run it when frost is on the windshield and windshield wipers in order to get ice and snow completely removed. Show them how to scrape the windshield with an ice scraper without damaging the wiper blades or the vehicle’s paint and how to carefully lift the blades to clear ice and snow from below. In addition, explain to them the importance of clearing all the snow off of their vehicle, including on the hood, rooftop, trunk, headlights, taillights and license plate. Remind them that this is not only what’s safe but what is required by Michigan law.

 

Driving On The Road

One of the best ways your teen driver can lower their risk of getting into an accident during the winter is to simply slow down when roads begin to get slick or snow covered in West Michigan. Begin by teaching them that any maneuver will take longer in slippery conditions including accelerating, braking and turning so they aren’t surprised by their vehicles unresponsiveness. Then take them out on short drives while you’re in the vehicle in order to coach them through the experience. Remind them to increase their distance behind other vehicles to accommodate for longer braking times and to accelerate slowly at lights and stop signs to maintain traction. Additionally, they should know that they should never use cruise control when roads are wet with rain, snow or ice which can lead to losing control of the vehicle. If they do begin to skid, remind them that they should always steer in the direction that they want to go.

 

Common Pitfalls

It may be difficult for young drivers to understand how normal actions or locations can be treacherous in wintry conditions in Grand Rapids but giving them a heads up before they head out can help solidify in them new habits that can keep them safer.  Talk to them about bridges becoming icy before normal roadways, as well as underpasses on the highway. Remind them to avoid increasing their acceleration rapidly while driving on them or while trying to gain momentum on a hill which could cause their tires to spin and lose traction.

 

Vehicle Tips

To always be prepared may be the motto for Boy Scouts but we could all take note on how that can help every driver in West Michigan. Keep your gas tank at least half full during the long winter months in Grand Rapids and make sure there is the recommended amount of tire pressure at all times. While they may not think it’s important or necessary, talk to them about wearing or at least bringing a warm hat, gloves and coat in the vehicle in case it breaks down or in the event they become stranded, as well as keeping blankets stored in the vehicle. Additionally parents should be sure to inspect their teen’s tires on their vehicle to make ensure they have enough tread to handle the increased need for traction, which in winter should be no less than 6/32″.
