While the entire country takes a hit during the wintertime, Michigan winters are particularly brutal. If you are looking for ways on how to survive a Michigan winter, here are few great features you need to have in your car.
- Four-wheel drive/All-wheel drive. You want as much traction as possible to keep your wheels in contact with the road. Having a vehicle equipped with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive will help your vehicle grip the road, even in icy and snowy conditions.
- Snow tires. When the winter gets particularly rough and the roads are covered in snow and ice, winter tires or snow tires can make a big difference. They are specifically designed to cut through the snow and stay soft even when the temperatures are frigid.
- Remote start. Nobody likes getting into a frigid car. Having a car with a remote starter can be a blessing in the cold winter months. Instead of getting into a refrigerator, remote start will allow you to open your doors to a toasty warm car and frost-free windows.
- Heated accessories. Another perk during the winter months is having heated seats or a heated steering wheel. Both will keep your body and your hands nice and warm.
