Have You Ever Gotten Stuck In The Snow?

It's that time of the year.  Unfortunately getting stuck in the snow  is unavoidable in NEPA. The following are a few tips to  help get you out:

1. Do not spin your wheels.(This will only dig you in deeper)

2. Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow out of the way.

3. Use a light touch on the gas, to ease your car out.

4. Use a shovel to clear snow away from the wheels and the underside of the car.

5. Pour sand, kitty litter, gravel or salt in the path of the wheels, to help get traction.

6. Try rocking the vehicle.  Shift from forward to reverse, and back again. Each time you're in gear, give a light touch on the gas until the vehicle gets going.

An emergency situation on the road can arise at any time, Car-Lotta Credit Car Sales wants to make sure  you are prepared. Along with having a full tank of gas,  you should carry the following items in your trunk:

•Properly inflated spare tire, wheel wrench and tripod-type jack •Shovel •Jumper cables •Bag of salt or cat litter and  Tool kit.
