Avoiding Hydroplaning

If you have the ability to avoid a hydroplaning situation, then you should do so. We here at Lithia Fiat of Concord understand that there will be times that you will hydroplane in your vehicle no matter what you do to avoid the situation. We have some simple tips that will help you stay safe even in the most wet conditions.

If you hit an area of water and feel your vehicle hydroplaning, you should let go of the accelerator. Trying to power through the area will only make the situation worse and cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

You should make sure to drive an appropriate vehicle when there is rain in the forecast. Leave your sports car at home.

Invest in a high-quality set of tires that are designed to prevent hydroplaning from occurring while you are on the road. You should also pay attention to the tread on your tires.
