A: Most of us think that getting stuck is the ...

Most of us think that getting stuck is the province of trucks and SUVs driving off road, but that’s not always the case. Your car may get stuck in snow, mud or sand that’s washed over the road, or you may even get stuck on the side of the road. Getting your car unstuck is a priority, and here’s how to do it:

  1. Use a tow strap secured properly to the vehicle.

  2. Do NOT use the tie-down hooks on the front of your vehicle for towing or unsticking your car.

  3. Turn off the vehicle dynamic control system.

  4. Check in front of and behind your car for any potential obstacles.

  5. Turn the steering wheel back and forth.

  6. Rock the car from side to side (slowly).

  7. Shift from drive to reverse and back again.

  8. Use the gas sparingly, and don’t spin your tires.

  9. If you still cannot unstick your car, call a tow truck.
