One way to prepare your vehicle before the winter months begin is by putting together a cold-weather survival kit for your trunk.

You’ll want to add some basic items if you don’t carry them regularly already, like jumper cables, duct tape, a small tool kit, a tow rope, emergency flares, and tire sealant. A flashlight with spare batteries will also come in handy, as will a warm blanket, spare clothing like extra gloves or a rain poncho, a shovel, and a heavy-duty ice scraper. If you bring pets or kids along with you often, include items to keep them comfortable as well. Keeping a heavy bag of kitty litter can have the added benefit of providing stability to a lighter vehicle and can be used for traction if you’re stuck in the snow.

At Lancaster County Motors Used Car Center in East Petersburg, PA, you’ll find a wide selection of winter-ready vehicles to choose from and can arrange to take a test drive today.
