It’s certainly been busy out in the Atlantic lately, hasn’t it? Hurricane Danny fizzled out, but Hurricane Erika is right on its heels and who knows what else is brewing out there? Our N Charlotte Toyota dealership is here to share tips on how to prepare your car for hurricanes, tropical storms, and other types of bad weather that we face here on the East coast – let’s get started!
Even if you’re not planning on getting out of town, you should still make sure your car is ready to hit the road at a moment’s notice. Hurricanes are wildly unpredictable, so you need to be ready to leave if things get bad! Gas up your car well before the storm hits, and be sure that you visit our N Charlotte Toyota Service Center to have your tires, brakes, battery, headlights, and wipers – all elements that need to be in tip top shape for bad weather – ready to go!

And always, always be ready to evacuate. Don’t park your car too far from where you live just in case you face a mandatory evacuation or have to get out of town quickly. Make sure it’s accessible, and locate those spare keys just in case!
