Emergency Winter Car Kits | Rudy Luther Toyota


It’s that time of year again. Winter is in full swing in Minneapolis. There are many things to be excited about. You now have the chance to ice fish, play hockey at the park, and eat some amazing comfort food! Tis the season to visit family. Minnesotans are good with snow, it is almost second nature. That being said, black ice or slipping off the road can happen to the most experienced driver.


For this reason, and because Rudy Luther Toyota wants to take care of you. Whether you are shopping for a new vehicle at our dealership, getting an oil change, or just at home on Facebook. This winter as you drive off to grandmas, or you head to the cabin to ski, make sure you are prepared for the worse.


All too often we drive past cars that have gotten stuck in the snow and we think these three things:

  1. “Man I am so lucky that’s not me.”

  2. “I bet that wouldn’t of happened to me. I know how to drive in the snow.”

  3. “I hope that person is okay, it’s cold!”


We have provided you with a list of items you need to keep in your vehicle to be winter ready. We call it our Emergency Winter Car Kit.

  • A shovel to dig yourself out if possible.

  • A bag of sand or cat litter to gain traction if you get stuck.

  • Emergency flares that allow you to be seen to be rescued if you are in the midst of white sheet snow.

  • Non-perishable snacks and water to keep you full if you get stuck in your vehicle for multiple hours on end.

  • Extra coats, scarves, hats, and gloves, for when you need to bundle up. Especially if your vehicle dies.  

  • Phone charger for the car.

  • Always keep a first aid kit in your vehicle. No matter what the season.

  • Have a small candle and some matches for extra heat if you can no longer keep your vehicle on.


Whatever you decide be safe on the road out there! We want to make sure you are ready for whatever comes your way this winter. Be sure to visit our service department to ensure all is good under the hood.
