Safety 101: Winter Driving Tips

Winter Driving Tips

Hitting the road in winter can be a danger to both you and other drivers, so here are some winter driving tips that will keep you in one piece this year.

Hitting the road in winter can be a danger to both you and other drivers, especially if it is your first time on snow-covered roads. You can reduce your risk of harm and get to your destination safely by taking the proper precautions. We here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet have some winter driving tips that will keep you in one piece this year.

  1. Have Emergency Supplies. Every time you head out onto the road during winter, there’s a chance you’ll end up stuck on the side waiting for help. Sometimes help can take hours to arrive, so it’s best to have emergency supplies in your vehicle just in case. A few blankets, flashlights and batteries, jumper cables, and extra clothing will do just fine.
  2. Brake Early. It takes longer to stop in winter weather, especially if the road is iced over. As a result, it is best to keep seven to 10 car lengths between the car in front of you. You can’t know what’s up ahead or how the other driver will react. Play it safe with some extra space.
  3. Beware of 4×4. Four-wheel drive is fantastic to get going on snowy and icy roads, but it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to stop as easily. Take the same precautions and keep your distance – you never know what the road’s like up ahead.

Stay safe on the roads this winter!

2016 Camaro Production Begins

2016 Camaro Production

In order to handle 2016 Camaro production, General Motors hired an additional 450 workers this past summer and added a second shift.

The sixth generation of the Camaro is here at last and, entirely rebuilt from the tires up, it promises to be the best yet! General Motors revealed the muscle car at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant a few weeks ago. This is the first time the Camaro has been made in the United States since the third generation rolled off the line in 1992.

The latest and greatest Camaro was officially revealed to the public back in May and hype has been building ever since. General Motors hired an additional 450 workers this past summer and added a second shift to spur production.

“Everyone’s excited to see to the Camaro roll down the line and get shipped to customers,” said Erin Davis, GM’s Lansing-based spokeswoman. “We feel really lucky we’re the plant that gets to have it built not only in the U.S. but Lansing.”

2016 Camaro production is expected to be running at full speed for the foreseeable future.

The introductory model is the Camaro 1LT, available at a starting price of $25,700 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 2.6-liter V6 under the hood. At the top of the pyramid is the 1SS with a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood and a price of $37,795.

We here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet can’t wait to see the latest Camaro on our lot!
