Winter Weather Driving Tips

The bone chilling winter weather is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to brush up on your winter weather driving. Driving in snow-covered or icy roads is unlike driving on any other terrain. Whether you’re a long-time veteran of the roads or a new kid on the block, we here at Wantagh Mazda have some winter weather driving tips to keep you out of harm’s way.

Winter Weather Driving Tips

  1. Keep Your Distance. When driving on unplowed or snow-covered roads, it’s best to keep at least seven car lengths from the car in front of you. Road conditions are ever-changing in winter, and you don’t know how other drivers will react to a given situation. Give yourself plenty of time to brake by keeping your distance.
  2. Brake Early. If you’re keeping your distance, braking early shouldn’t cause any problems. If you’re tailgating, you could be in for some trouble. By braking early, you allow yourself and, more importantly, your car more time to come to a stop. Roads tend to be slick in winter so braking early is necessary to avoid an accident.
  3. Keep Emergency Supplies. You never know when you’ll end up on the side of the road waiting for help. That’s why it’s a good idea to keep emergency supplies, like extra clothes, blankets, a flashlight and batteries, and jumper cables handy.

MX-5 Limited Edition Tops Miata Lineup

It’s finally here, folks! The first ever Miata special edition is hitting roadways in the form of the Recaro Limited Edition. The hot roadster comes with plenty of special features and a different look that appeals to drivers everywhere. Unfortunately, drivers everywhere won’t be able to get behind the wheel of the latest Miata.

The Recaro Limited Edition is only seeing a production run of 600 units and all of those majestic cars will be sold exclusively in the United Kingdom. As you’d imagine, the Recaro Limited Edition is a right-hand drive, but that isn’t all that sets it apart.

Color choices include silver or red. The Limited Edition comes with Recaro leather seats with microsuede inserts, red stitching, and red piping. There’s more microsuede with red stitching on the dashboard as well as the shifter and handbrake trim. Mazda topped it all off with special 17-inch wheels, black mirrors, and a plaque.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata Recaro Limited Edition converts to a price just under $37,000, fitting considering it tops the lineup.

While the first MX-5 limited edition model won’t be coming to the States, it’s a good look at what we could expect in the future!

We here at Wantagh Mazda can’t wait to see the latest and greatest model on the Miata lineup!
