Tips for Hill Driving

Tips-for-Hill-DrivingMost drivers don’t know much about driving on the hills. They might end up doing excess honking, be confused on what gear to use, overuse their brakes, etc. It’s no wonder that a large percentage of hill accidents involve drivers from lowlands. Here are some points to remember while making a trip up north.

Health Check

Get your car thoroughly checked up before planning to drive in the hills. Cars tend to heat up, require better handling and more braking. It never hurts to take a few things like engine oil, brake oil, coolant, in case you might need it. They aren’t too many mechanics to help you out on the way and calling for one isn’t an option unlike in cities.

Be light on turns

Be smooth when approaching turns by slowing down and gradually turning the steering. Hard turns will not only stress you out, but also the car. It can also cause motion sickness. This happens because the body needs time to adjust to the pressure in high altitude places.

Keep within speed limits even on a straight stretch

Hilly roads are laid a little difficult in some places. Sometimes you may encounter bend after bend and then a stretch of straight road. But don’t get tempted to press down on the accelerator. Chances are you’re not familiar with the road, and unlike highways, it’s a bad idea to speed in the hills. You have no idea when the stretch will end or when a turn is coming up. Always keep to your speed limit; it’s for your own good.

Driving at night

If you’re driving at night be sure to keep your headlights on low beam; for high beam can blind on-coming traffic. Use your blinkers to alert people behind you when you’re stopping or slowing down.

Overtaking

Before overtaking on the hills, be sure to check for traffic signs like bends, narrow bridges, etc. Keep your eye on the vehicle for signs of speed change, overtaking moves or swerving in front before overtaking. The car in front has a better view of things ahead and might take action to avoid any obstruction you may not be able to see.

Escape ramps

Built on most steep mountain roads, these ramps allow drivers to either stop or to overtake. They normally have a long bed of loose soft material like gravel to help slow down. With narrow roads a constant, escape ramps offer a much-needed rest stop for drivers at times.

Now that you know the essentials to driving on the hills, pack your bags and surprise your family with a nice weekend getaway to your favorite hill station!

The Three C’s of Driving

The-Three-Cs-of-DrivingAs enjoyable as driving is, it can be also be stressful. Traffic snarls, long drives, accidents major or minor can result in stress and irritation at the steering wheel. When distracted and frustrated, drivers are at most. One of the best ways for drivers to avoid this stress is by following “The Three C’s”, i.e., being Considerate, Consistent and Careful. These three simple rules can make you more aware and cautious:

Be considerate and keep a safe distance while tailgating;

Be consistent with your speed by driving according to the flow; and

Be careful while approaching corners.

Tailgating is a problem if you’re not concentrating on the road ahead and being pre-occupied. It gives you less time to react to any unexpected action from the vehicle ahead. You can never tell what the other person has on their mind, so being considerate of these factors; you should keep a safe distance from a potential collision. Try keeping a minimum two-second buffer between vehicles, and increase it to at least four-seconds in wet conditions.

There’s no mistaking the traffic in India for anywhere else in the world. It’s hectic, irritable and frustrating at most times. Keeping up to speed with the rest of the bunch and letting traffic flow around you is an important way to avoiding any headaches. The risks of over-speeding are obvious, while driving too slow also has its hazards. Drivers behind can get frustrated leading them to make risky maneuvers. It’s important to keep the flow of traffic smooth in order to limit the risk to you and others.

Approaching corners at the appropriate speed is important as a majority of crashes occur with drivers losing control at bends. Slow your car down before you get into corners and pay attention to any oncoming traffic. If it’s raining, you should take even more precautions.

So there you have it. Three small rules that mean a lot on the road. It is simple things like these that can keep you safe and protected in your car. So next time your driving be sure to practice “The Three C’s”.

Incredible-yet-true Beat Stories

Chevrolet Beat DieselWords of praise have been pouring in ever since the launch of the Beat Diesel. And proud owners love to share stories of its great performance.

Our Amritsar Dealer has written in about Mr. Jugal Kishore’s experience with his Chevrolet Beat Diesel. Mr. Kishore, bought his Beat Diesel from Chevrolet’s Amritsar Dealer and was amazed to note that after the second service, his car was giving him an incredible 30.6 kms to the liter!

While we expect a good mileage, thanks to the SMARTECH diesel engine, this was a surprise even for us.The amazing 25.44 kmpl* has always been a talking point for the Beat Diesel. But, when a car starts giving almost 6 kmpl more than what was promised, everyone, including us, is definitely thrilled.

Mr. Jugal Kishore was all praises for the helpful staff and great experience at the S.V. Motors Workshop in Amritsar.

Another delighted Beat Diesel owner is Mr. G. Senthilkumar, from Hosur, Tamil Nadu. He was all praises for his recently bought Beat Diesel. He wrote about the excellent torque delivery of the car, especially during hill driving and over taking. Its high-performance engine gave him great confidence, even at speeds of 100 km/hr and above. Stories like these are what keep us going and make us feel proud of every car produced at Chevrolet.

At Chevrolet we strongly believe in delivering cars that are not only stylish and efficient, but complete value-for-money. That is what evokes pride that Chevrolet owners feel for their car. So, have you bought your Chevrolet yet?
