5 Skills To Safely Drive Your Used SUV For Sale

Are you planning on finding an SUV for sale near Elkhart, IN? Whether your family just got bigger or you need more cargo room, SUVs can serve many purposes. However, before getting behind the wheel of an SUV for the first time, it is crucial to understand how they operate differently from cars. Because of this, as an Elkhart used car dealer, we at USA-1 would like to provide you with a list of five SUV driving skills to help ensure your safety on the road. At USA-1, we differentiate ourselves from other Elkhart used car dealers with exceptional service and a vast inventory. Please look at the list below before visiting us to decide on your dream SUV for sale.

  1. Drive At A Safe Speed, Especially When Turning

    Because SUVs typically donít handle as well as passenger vehicles, it can be easy to drift onto the shoulder in an SUV. An SUVís high center of gravity can cause drastic effects on tight corners, resulting in rollovers and accidents. Most rollovers are caused by a tire hitting soft soil or a curb, causing the vehicle to roll. Before finding a used SUV near you, it is best to know the handling and the high center of gravity.

  2. Keep The Cargo Light, Secured, And Well Distributed

    Any cargo you add to an SUV, including passengers, raises an SUVís center of gravity, which in turn increases the chances of a rollover. For this reason, it is wise to be mindful when packing heavy things or a lot of cargo. You should evenly distribute the cargo weight and secure it well to maintain the proper weight distribution. Another factor to consider is that overloading an SUV can wear down the brakes, and tires can overheat, posing the risk of a blowout.

  3. Leave Extra Space And Hit The Brakes Sooner

    Used SUVs set themselves apart from used cars in Elkhart with the way in which they brake and accelerate. Because SUVs are bigger, they carry more momentum on the road. To compensate for this, you should always maintain extra following distance, and you should also hit your brakes sooner when youíre behind the wheel of an SUV. This rule applies even more with SUVs on slick roads, and you should always proceed with caution through harsh road conditions. If you want to get a feel for how an SUV handles, stop by a certified Elkhart car dealer, like USA-1, to schedule a test drive today. You can choose from our massive selection of SUVs for sale to find the right fit for you. If youíre not comfortable or satisfied with how an SUV handles, you can also browse our inventory of Elkhart used cars.

  4. Use Caution When Towing With An SUV

    Your SUV may come equipped with a tow hitch; however, that doesnít mean it has the horsepower, stability, or braking capacity to handle a heavy, loaded trailer. Before towing anything with an SUV, it is always best to refer to the ownerís manual for towing limitations. It is also essential to consider that an SUVís handling and stability will change considerably when towing something.

  5. Mind Your Mirrors And Check For Objects Around You

    When driving an SUV, you will have a higher viewpoint than a regular car. Because of this, the range of view can be slightly more extensive; however, it is still important to minimize your blind spots by adjusting your mirrors. Since you are higher, it may also be more challenging to see things lower on the ground; therefore, you should watch for any debris or objects on the ground when driving.

At USA-1, we want to ensure your safety behind the wheel, and we want you to drive off the lot feeling comfortable with your SUV. Our experts are here to provide any further safety tips on SUVs or any of our cars for sale in Elkhart, Indiana. Visit us today at USA-1 to find your dream vehicle.
