Driving Tips for Icy Roads

icy roadWinter driving can be tough in Connecticut, no matter what kind of new or used car, truck or vehicle you drive.

But do you know that icy conditions are completely different than snowy? Driving in snow can be difficult, but is nothing compared to trying to drive on icy roads, no matter if you have new or used car, four wheel drive, all wheel drive or even a big city sander!

With many winter storms behind us, and no doubt a few more ahead, please drive safely! If you ever need assistance with your vehicle during these cold New England winters, let our Key Hyundai solution providers help.
