At MINI of Charleston we know how it feels to look out the window and see thick sheets of rain falling. It’s time to leave for work, but driving in the rain can be dangerous. What do you do? The car is in the garage, so no need to worry about getting wet here. It’s a different story on wet roads though.

Turning on the wipers can help keep the windshield clear, but be aware that unless the indoor and outdoor temperatures are close to equal you may have to deal with the glass fogging up with the defroster going anyway.

Maintain a slower than normal speed to avoid the chance of slipping and sliding all over the road due to hydroplaning on wet pavement. Watch closely for puddles of water that may have collected in potholes or along the drainage areas at the side of the road. splashing water on the engine can cause it to stall.
