Why Drivers are Buying Crossovers

Our team at Auto Solutions wants you to be an informed driver when purchasing your next vehicle and knowing what’s available and will meet your needs is the first step. In recent years, more and more drivers are choosing to buy a crossover. Just what’s so special about crossovers, and why are so many drivers choosing them as their family vehicles? Crossovers offer you the comfort and economy of a car yet offer the room and performance of an SUV. Because their frame is more similar to cars than to SUVs, they’re cheaper to make. This, in turn, makes them more affordable. Drivers also experience better fuel economy with a crossover. Crossovers also offer a huge variety of design and style options, which is a popular feature with drivers of all ages. Before you purchase your next vehicle, come to our shop in Maryville, TN and take a crossover for a test drive. We’re pretty sure you’ll love what you see and experience!

Features That Make a Vehicle Safer

Every vehicle needs to be designed more safely. Lately, the automakers have pushed to have blind-spot monitoring as a critical component of these vehicles. This is because blind-spot monitoring saves lives and overcomes the basic human challenge of the blind-spot. We all have a blind-spot as human beings. It is how we are designed, and there is no way to get around it. The best we can do is use technology to aid us to overcome this challenge. That is what a blind-spot monitoring system does. The system will take over the controls of the vehicle as needed and move it back into its proper lane when necessary if a driver begins to move too far over into a lane where another vehicle is present. People often don't realize how important it is to keep an eye on their blind-spots, but they should be more aware of this and should appreciate the added value that a vehicle with this feature has.

Two Important Things to Know About Roof Racks

Roof racks are excellent accessories for Maryville, TN motorists who love traveling with ample interior room. With these systems, you can securely store your items on top of your vehicle. At Auto Solutions, we want to help drivers learn more about the best ways to use these popular additions. 

These Systems Should Only Remain in Place When in Use 

Drivers are often advised to take their roof racks off when they aren't using them. A roof rack that isn't being used will add unnecessary weight to your auto. It will also increase your car's aerodynamic drag. Taking the time to remove it can save you at the pump. 

Avoid Damaging Your Car with a Proper Fitting 

A roof rack that's been properly fitted and properly installed will not damage your car in any way. However, a rack that's been either under-tightened or over-tightened can lead to serious problems. Take the time to read the instructions on these products before attempting to set them up.

Installing a Car Seat the Correct Way

Of all that you'll carry in your car, nothing is more precious than your children. To keep them safe, it's vital that you understand how to properly install car seats. Improper installation can leave your child unprotected, causing potentially disastrous consequences in the event of an accident. For greater insight into car seat installation, we at Auto Solutions offer these tips. Before you install the car seat, you'll want to be sure that the car seat is the correct size for your child. While some car seats can be changed to grow with your child, most will need to be replaced as your child grows. Do not exceed the weight and height limits for a particular car seat. Additionally, you should inspect the car LATCH tethers on the car seat for any type of wear and tear. If any fraying or decay is noted, it's crucial that you dispose of the car seat immediately and replace it with a new model in Maryville, TN.

Tips for Packing Your Vehicle

At Auto Solutions, we want you to be able to get the most from your vehicle. If you are going on a road trip, it is important to understand how to properly and safely pack your luggage. Ideally, the heaviest items will be loaded into your car or truck first. Heavy items can be laid flat on the floor, which means that you don't necessarily have to lift them into the vehicle. Putting heavy items on the floor means that lighter items can sit on top of them. This makes them less likely to be damaged on the way to or from your destination. Kayaks, bikes and other large items that won't fit in the car should be placed on the roof. Before you leave, make sure that items will have enough clearance to travel under bridges and other structures that you encounter while on the road.

Safe Ways to Travel with Pets

Traveling with pets in the car can be quite dangerous. There are several things that can make it safer. Start with smaller trips and gradually move up to give your pet a change to get used to driving in the vehicle. Make sure your dog has identification tags that also contain the correct contact information. Make sure that your dog is micro-chipped. Never have your pet stay in the car by themselves. The car can get very hot in a short period of time. Having the window cracked does not help with this. Make sure your pet is retrained in either a carrier or a dog seat. Avoid having your dog sit in the front seat or in your lap while you are driving. Do not let you animal put any part of their body outside the car. Doing this can cause damage to their mucous membranes, and things can potentially fly into their eyes. Letting your pet ride in the back of a pickup truck can also be very dangerous for them. Leashing your pet while they are in the back of the truck can also cause a potential strangulation risk. Remember that the pickup bed can get very hot from the sun and possibly burn paws. Take special care to keep both you and your pet safe when you drive.

Keep Your Wheels and Tires Clean

Many vehicles have some very fancy and expensive wheels that cost a lot of money. If you have nice wheels on your vehicle, you will definitely want to keep them clean and protected. At Auto Solutions in Maryville, TN, we want you to know how to properly clean your wheels and tires. 

When you are washing your vehicle, always wash the tires first. This prevents dirt from splashing on the rest of the vehicle. After you do the initial wash and rinse, use a wheel and tire cleaner that is appropriate for your vehicle. Work in the cleaner with a brush, and then rinse the wheels and tires again. 

After the second rinse, towel off the wheels and tires with a cloth that won't be used anywhere else on the vehicle. When the wheels are dry, apply some wheel wax, and then buff the wheels. You can then apply tire dressing for a nice shine.
