Many SUVs come with a roof rack, and while it's not difficult to use, we do have a few tips. First, get out your owner’s manual; there are a few specs you’re going to need before you start.

Look up the weight limit of the roof of the SUV and the roof rack itself. The last thing you want is for your cargo to rip the rails off the roof and go bouncing down the road behind you. The second-to-last thing you want is to cave in the roof. Once you have that under control, carefully load your cargo and tie it down securely with straps running front to back and side to side.

Before you hit the road out of Schererville, IN, you’ll want to make sure your car is in great repair. Let us perform a pre-vacation maintenance check at Napleton’s Autoworks of Indiana, Inc.
