Living in the Pacific Northwest is fantastic, and the area is beautiful thanks to its forests and mountains. However, the wet weather and cold winters mean that drivers must be particularly careful on the road. That’s why Northwest Rides in Bremerton, WA, recommends that local drivers look at their all-wheel drive used Subarus®.
Why Buy All-Wheel Drive Used Subarus?
How All-Wheel Drive Works
An all-wheel drive system splits the torque of the engine by diverting power to each drive shaft. Subaru produces a superior all-wheel drive system because it sends roughly 20 percent of the power to the rear wheels, and will adjust as needed for your current driving conditions. A computer uses sensors in the wheels to track the traction and wheel speed, then powers the wheels that have the most traction for safer driving.
The Benefits of All-Wheel Drive
All-wheel drive is best for areas where the weather conditions are always changing, such as in the Northwest. When you’re driving in intermittent ice or water, the traction of each wheel is constantly changing, and your car needs to adapt to stay on the road. This system gives you extra stability no matter the weather conditions, so it doesn’t matter whether it’s sunny, raining, or snowing.
