So you’re purchasing a new vehicle, congrats!
You’ve no doubt spent a good deal of time analyzing reliability, gas mileage and performance and are ready to sign the dotted line. But wait….the dealer has just a few options they’d like to chat about. Alongside the rust proofing and paint protection film, they notify you that those crossbars that you were hoping to strap your kayak to aren’t actually included in your trim level. Before you go ahead and authorize this add-on, know that you’ve got options!
Now maybe you’re just looking for a rack to look pretty on your vehicle, and in that case, the “new car selfie” you post to Instagram will probably look just as good with the flimsy rack they’ll slap on there! However, if you actually want to use it, consider an aftermarket option.
First off, depending on your vehicle of choice, a factory rack option may not even be available. If you’re buying a sedan, pickup truck or coupe there will likely be no offered options from the dealership, leaving you to the aftermarket racks, which isn't a bad thing. (Sidenote - We’ve equipped everything from Mini Coopers to F350’s, never assume it’s not possible!) For the rest of this blog though we’re going to consider that the dealership does have an option for you; so why go aftermarket?
So while we can’t help you with the rust proofing, we’d be happy to provide a quote on a roof rack system, and help you say no to factory racks!
