Tips for Safely Using Roof Racks on Vehicles

There are many advantages to having a roof rack on the vehicle that you drive around town. A box on your roof can add extra storage capacity for weekend camping trips or luggage when coming home from the airport. Racks also make it easy to carry bikes, canoes, or other objects that won't fit into your vehicle. DCH Tustin Acura can help you select the right roof rack for your unique needs.

During the installation process, make sure that you don't over tighten the bolts. Putting a little bit of copper grease on the bolts can keep them from getting stuck and take the stress out of taking the rack off. Removing the rack when you're not using it can decrease the wind resistance of your vehicle and improve its gas efficiency.

Racks add height to a vehicle, and you'll need to be careful when going under areas with limited clearance. If you'd like to choose a new vehicle that can accommodate your gear, come by our Acura dealership soon!
