When the summer calls, the open road seems to call as well. For those who wish to head out on the trail in their Jaguar car, we’ve got a few things to watch out for to make sure you and your family keep the trip you’ve got in mind fun and entertaining, not stressful and tragic.

Rainy days are no fun when you’re driving, and they can be hazardous when you’re caught in the middle of it. And when you’re out driving, you need to keep your wits about you. There’s a ton of ways it can go bad. So when you’re running on a wet road, make sure that you are always keeping things under control – going slower is always a first good move, but the construction of your vehicle will always help make the problem better. And when it comes to the vehicle, being equipped with all-wheel-drive like the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE makes sure that the tires that need the traction the most will get them.

Sometimes, it’s not even the weather making things difficult. Some people will keep their attention elsewhere than the road, so they end up being a problem for everyone else on it. In that case, it’s always best for those sharing it with them to keep out of their way. When you come across a reckless driver, keep your vehicle steady, slow down, and let them pass as safely as possible. It’s also then that advanced safety systems, such as the ones found in the 2020 Jaguar XE, can help immensely. Safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control to keep you driving with the speed of traffic, or High-Speed Emergency Braking to bring your vehicle to a complete stop to avoid a collision can be an incredible help when conditions get dangerous.

So keep you and your family safe this summer with the safety, power, and luxury of a new or certified pre-owned Jaguar. Please head to our Chicago-area Jaguar service center to have your vehicle maintained by our expert technicians to ensure it’s in top shape.
