The best thing to do when the roads are icy or snow covered is to avoid driving if possible. However, there are times that we cannot avoid getting out on the roads. In times like this there a few things to consider that might help keep you safe.
First: Be sure to leave in plenty of time so that you can keep your speeds low. Driving slow will not only help you control your vehicle it will also help stopping.
Second: Brake gently to avoid sliding, and if you start to lose traction and slide let off the brake.
Third: Fully remove ice and snow from the windshield and lights. This will give you the best chance of seeing any obstacles and allow others to see you.
Finally: Don’t assume your vehicle is able to handle any road condition. Even if you made a great decision by purchasing one of the safest vehicles made there are conditions that are not suitable for any vehicle. Never pass a snowplow and do not drive through snow banks.
Be safe from Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North!

2014 Lexus IS
For 2014, the Lexus IS 250 has been fully redesigned. Highlights include new exterior and interior styling, increased rear-seat room and trunk space, revised suspension and steering tuning, and new safety features.
2014 marks the redesign of the sporty Lexus IS 250, and we at Hendirck Lexus Kansas City believe it is a great success. The first thing that you will notice is that the Lexus IS has a longer wheelbase. This added length will have to major impacts for drivers and passengers.
The most obvious perk to having a larger vehicle is the added space that the back seat passengers will enjoy. Even though this is a sporty car there is no reason to forgo luxury and comfort. To these ends the IS will not disappoint, because the added length also dramatically increases not only the handling and stability, but also comfort and ride quality. Edmonds says that, ‘the driver's feel of the car through the steering wheel is now one of the best in this segment.”
Aside from making the IS a more stable and sporty ride there are also new safety features. You can now take advantage of lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring while you are enjoying your drive. And finally buyer will see nice upgrades in the electronics package that comes with the IS including the options Remote Touch electronics interface that give a mouselike solution to navigating the abundant features..

What is the best way to take care of your Lexus investment?
When you bring your vehicle into Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North. you can be certain of two things: quality service and certified Lexus parts are available for use. Of course, there's nobody more qualified to install parts on your Lexus vehicle than an authorized Lexus service technician. This is what they specialize in the maintenance and repair of your Lexus vehicle.

Another benefit of maintaining your Lexus Vehicle at Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North is the Lexus Lexus National Service History database.

LEXUS ES 350
2013 brought the redesign to an already superior vehicle. The Lexus ES 350 has for years set the standard in its segment by offering a luxurious ride in a reliable vehicle that has a user friendly interface. Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North notices the loyalty the Lexus ES owners have to the Lexus by trading their current Lexus ES in for the newest model when the time comes to upgrade. Those that do choose to go with the newest Lexus ES will not be disappointed.
As alway with the Lexus ES the road noise seems to be eliminated. A quite ride is a hallmark of the Lexus brand, and the Lexus ES has never been anything but exceptional at keeping the wind and road noise away from the passengers. Event though the Acura TL has improved in this area it still cannot compare to the quite ride that the Lexus ES provides.
The ample passenger room and fun options really propel the Lexus ES over competitors. As technology increases capabilities it has become more important for vehicles to manage these perks. The Lexus ES does this by offering the Remote Touch electronics interface that offers owners a mouse like solution to navigate through the many options. While I personally think that it is a great feature buyers should try it out with a sales representative before leaving Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North.
Even though the competition has upped their game over the past few years they still cannot beat the Lexus ES. The ride and interface of the Lexus ES has a clear advantage over the Acura TL. The Mercedes C Class is a competitor, but falls short with design and noisy ride. I think it is safe to say that the Lexus ES customers will remain loyal to the Lexus ES. If you are looking to upgrade your current Lexus ES or want to try the Lexus ES for the first time. Visit Hendrick Lexus Kansas City North online at www.hendricklexuskansascitynorth.com.
