A 4-wheel drive car is advisable for this area, especially during the winter season.

Always adhere to the speed limits given on posted signs. Generally, 25 mph are permitted in residential areas, 55 mpg on unposted highways and up to 75 mph on freeways. The Basic Speed Law also applies, which means driving as fast as is sensible and adapting to the weather and road conditions.
The average petrol price in Detroit is technically $2.90 per gallon but at petrol stations like CITGO, it can go as low as $2.30 per gallon. Petrolstations around the airport and alongside the freeway can be more expensive, so check in advance how much petrol you have so you do not have to opt for the first station you see, even if it costs more than others.
Street parking, parking lots, and garages are all good options for parking a hire car. Street parking is mostly metered and operated usually between 8 AM and 6 PM Mondays through Saturdays, so parking outside these times is free of charge. Garages include the Buhl Garage or Cadillac Square, but with prices ranging from $15 to $24 per two hours, they are a rather pricey solution. Generally, parking in Detroit comes at a cost, so opting for a hotel with a parking lot is recommended.
