Take a Measured Approached When Using Your Roof Rack

Soon, many residents in Anchorage, AK will begin traveling for the holidays to visit family and friends. This is a great opportunity for Lithia Kia of Anchorage to inform everyone how to safely use their roof rack for carrying luggage.

The first step in securing cargo on your roof rack is to ensure that each item meets the measurement requirements the manufacturer sets. Avoid allowing any luggage, bags or gear to hang over the side of the roof rack. And be sure that each item is durable enough to sustain any adverse weather conditions, which could result in items being shifted and becoming unsafe for driving.

Additionally, it’s always important to drive the posted speed limit, but it’s vital when traveling with cargo on your roof rack. This is especially necessary for the safety of others on the road. We also encourage you to make an appointment with our service center for vehicle maintenance or repairs, prior to departing.
