How to Build a Winter Car Emergency Kit

If you live in or plan on traveling to snowy parts of the country this winter, your regular emergency kit may not be enough to get you out of a tough situation. Our New Jersey Subaru dealer knows all too well how the unpredictable weather can impact your commute and daily life, which is why we recommend building a winter car emergency kit before your next trip.

Prepare Your Subaru for Emergencies in New Jersey

Between challenging winter conditions like frigid temperatures, freezing rain, snow drifts, and icy roads, collisions and car troubles are unfortunate realities on the road. In order to make sure you and your ride are prepared for anything, we’ve put together a list of items to keep in your winter car emergency kit before your next trip to ensure you’re ready for anything. These items include:

  • First aid kit
  • Essential medications
  • Flares or reflectors to signal for help and warn other drivers
  • Flashlight
  • Extra batteries
  • Jumper cables
  • Snow and ice scraper
  • Snow brush
  • Survival blanket or sleeping bag
  • Tire chains and/or tow straps
  • Extra set of winter clothes
  • Snow shovel
  • Non-clumping kitty litter or sand for traction

Once you have your winter emergency kit stocked, it’s a smart idea to have a mechanic check your car’s antifreeze, brakes, heater and defroster, tires, and windshield wipers to ensure your ride is in good condition. Our trained Subaru technicians are more than happy to take a look under the hood for you, and can install or recommend any needed OEM components from our New Jersey parts department if you prefer to complete the work yourself. Maintenance is one of the biggest responsibilities that comes with vehicle ownership and is especially important in the winter months.

Always remember to plan your trips carefully by checking out the latest weather forecasts and road conditions before you head out.
