Stay Safe in Weather with a Vehicle from Subaru of Midland Odessa

Be prepared to handle all kinds of weather situations with a Subaru. Even though the right model is designed to handle a range of weather conditions, it still needs to be prepped for whatever you might face.

You never know what the season will bring with the weather, which is why you must be prepared. For the hot weather, you'll want to take the following precautions:

  • Check the tire pressure, depth of tread and the condition of the tire
  • Buy summer tires if they are more practical for your use
  • Have the battery tested
  • Have the air conditioning system tested
  • Check oil level and other fluids
  • Inspect the brake pads
  • Inspect and possibly replace air filter

If you plan to take a trip to a colder area in the winter, you'll want to take some special precautions to ensure your Subaru is ready to go.

  • Consider using winter tires
  • Check tire pressure and tread
  • Check oil and other fluid levels
  • Check windshield washer fluid levels
  • Check wiper blades
  • Have the battery tested
  • Check heating system
  • Test coolant for colder temperatures
  • Check brake pads

Prepared for Any Weather

Subaru models are designed to take on the challenges of various weather conditions. It is important to know how your Subaru can protect you in different situations. For instance, the Subaru EyeSight Safety System is standard on many of the newer models. This system includes multiple cameras, including a rear backup camera with visual and audio alerts to warn when you're getting too close to an obstacle. Front cameras provide warning when another vehicle is too close. Adaptive cruise control helps you stay a safe distance from other vehicles, which is critical in bad weather or with adverse road conditions.

Blind spot monitoring helps you get a look at what is around you before you attempt to switch lanes. Pre-collision assistance helps you slow down or stop when an obstacle appears in front of you. In bad weather, it can be a vehicle that has gone out of control or stopped suddenly.  

If an accident happens, Subaru includes Subaru StarLink with the ability to send out an SOS for emergency help. You never have to feel like you are alone.

All-Wheel Drive

One of the most important aspects of safety and performance for Subaru is all-wheel drive that comes standard on most models. Today, symmetrical all-wheel drive ensures maximum stability and traction to all the wheels. This system provides improved capability and grip on wet and icy roads while also offering improved traction when going off-road. All-wheel drive prevents slippage with a faster response time than with standard all-wheel drive. This system can engage when the road conditions change to prevent accidents.
