Packing Your SUV Safely

Getting ready for your next summer trip should include thinking about how you will properly pack up your vehicle. Having a general sense of the weight of your luggage will help you make sure that you do not exceed your SUV's load capacity, which can range from 900 to 1,600 pounds. In addition to helping you maintain a good gas mileage rate, reducing your overall load helps ensure you are in control of your steering.

Even though it is easy to underestimate the amount of cargo space you have in your vehicle, you should avoid blocking the rear window at all costs. This makes it more difficult to maneuver and puts you at risk of hitting another car or pedestrian in your rear blind spot. You should always leave enough room for an emergency kit with at least water, flares, and a flashlight.
