Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your SUV

New York, NY (PRUnderground) August 23rd, 2021

The crossover and SUV segments have remained the most popular, and fastest-growing, segments in the automotive industry. With most manufacturers adding utes to their stables, and some even choosing to phase out sedans and other body types in favor of SUVs only, most American families will have an SUV at some point in their lives, whether new or used. Here are some car tips and tricks to help you get the most out of it.

Space: The Final Frontier

One of the main reasons people buy SUVs and crossovers is for the available space – not just in the back behind the rear seats, but for ferrying people. Anyone with a family of children will value the second, and even third row, of seats that makes it a breeze to get your brood to school. And, in cars like Chevy Traverse that seats eight, you may get a massive cargo hold too – but what if you don’t? In cases like this, a roof rack comes in handy when you want to maximize how much stuff you can carry. Always have a look at the dealer accessories offered when you buy new, or an accredited aftermarket installer, for a high quality basket.

Be Prepared

Very often, family cars are used to take the whole clan on holiday, and one of the benefits of an SUV or crossover is how convenient vacationing is. Still, even if your Lexus RX comes with all the modern tech features to keep you safe and sound, it pays to be prepared when you’ve got a long journey ahead of you. Make sure your car has been checked mechanically before hitting the road, double-check your spare wheel, and ensure you have basic tools with you should you need to switch out a tire. One of the best life hacks is to ensure you have warranty coverage and even roadside assistance – any car can break down, and this is one of the quickest and safest ways to get back up and running.

Towing Tips

Another benefit of having a car this capable is the ability to tow – whether it’s a trailer, caravan, jet-ski, or ATV, the ability to hitch something means you take your toys with you wherever you go. More than that, though, it’s a great way to carry luggage if you’ve got a full car. Just read a 

Subaru Crosstrek review and you’ll see that even the more compact SUVs can manage around 1,500 lbs without a fuss. The Ford Expedition can tow over 9,000 lbs when properly equipped, which will make packing for your getaway a breeze.
