Top Perks of Buying an SUV

Are you debating what type of vehicle will be in your near future? An SUV is a great all-around vehicle and ideal for many lifestyles. From sporty to family-friendly, there are a TON of perks of owning an SUV. As your family owned car dealership in California, MO, we know how important it is to find the perfect ride for your wants and needs. If you're interested in a new ride and aren't sold on buying an SUV yet, take a look below for top perks of this vehicle type!


Optimal Fuel Mileage

Many SUV's are equipped with great fuel mileage. It's typically comparable to driving a full size car, even better in some models. Make the most of your gasoline usage and get further while using less fuel! An SUV is a smart choice if you are concerned with fuel efficiency.

Plenty of Storage Space

SUV's offer ample storage space. The back door often offers a wide range of storage options AND it's much taller than a car for those unusual items you may haul. An SUV offers the best of both worlds - it has ample storage space like a truck, but much larger than a car with limited space. AND your items will be inside the vehicle, therefore protected from outside elements.

High Safety Ratings

The safety ratings on an SUV is impressive. It's a bigger vehicle than a car but with a more stable stance than a truck. Many SUVs are top in impact testing, as well. There are a number of safety features included in most models. From side impact airbags to auto door locks when the vehicle is in drive, you can increase the safety of your family with the purchase of an SUV.

Ideal Comfort for All

Along with storage space, there is typically more seating space available in an SUV. This type of vehicle can sometimes offer a third row of seats, depending on the model you are looking for. In addition to extra seats, an SUV often has larger seats and more foot room than it's counterparts. If you often have people in the backseat, an SUV offers comfortable seating for everyone in your vehicle.

Renowned Off-Road Capabilities

If you live life on the adventurous side, an SUV is an ideal vehicle for you! The suspension is tough for those bumpy roads and many SUVs offer a safe chassis, ideal for getting you exactly where you want to go! Whether you are going camping with the family or out for a thrilling day of trail riding, an SUV is the right option in a vehicle for you!

🚌Safety Tips for Back to School🚌

It's that time of year again, the kids will be going back to school in the next few weeks. As this time of year rolls around, it's important to keep safety tips when it comes to school drop-offs and navigating around buses top of mind. As your dedicated car dealership in California, MO, we want to help keep you and your kids safe this back to school season. Take a look below to learn some quick safety tips reminders to refresh as the school year gears up.


Watch Out For Bus Stops

As you drive to and from school, there will likely be busses traveling along your same route. Keep in mind that a bus cannot come to a stop as quickly as you may be able to; allow adequate stopping distance when flowing a bus. Be prepared to stop frequently when driving behind a bus, they will stop to drop off students often. Remember, all lanes of traffic must stop when students are entering or exiting a bus on the roadway. A 10 foot radius around the bus is the most dangerous place for a child. Be sure to allow enough space for children to exit the bus safely. Keep in mind that children are unpredictable, and often unaware of dangerous situations that a road can present. Being aware of busses and children this back to school season will help promote a safe commute for everyone involved.

Use Caution at the Loading Zone

Schools typically have specific pick-up and drop-off safety suggestions for parents. When taking your kids to school, or picking them up, make sure you know the procedure. Do not double park in a school loading zone; this can prevent a child from seeing other vehicles. Try to avoid picking up or dropping off your children across the street from the school. This may make your commute quicker but can also create a dangerous situation for kids when they have to cross a road or parking lot at a busy time.

Look Out for Pedestrians at Crosswalks

Roads surrounding schools are filled with crosswalks. Many children heading to and from school will use these spaces to cross the road. Do not block a crosswalk when stopped at a light or stop sign, forcing the students to walk around your vehicle and out of the crosswalk. It is a good rule of thumb to stop and let a child cross the road if they are waiting. Sometimes kids forget to stop and wait, and may dart out into the road without being aware of oncoming traffic. Keep an eye out for children walking along or crossing the road when heading back to school this year.

Now that you have a refresh of safety tips of going back to school, you're ready to get your kids ready for the big day. As you prep your children for back to school, you should also ensure your vehicle is ready for the school drop-offs and other activities that go hand in hand with the school year gearing back up. Whether it's sports practice or other extracurricular activities, you may be on the run this fall. Bring your ride by Spieler's Incorporated to have one of our factory trained mechanics take a look at it. We can let you know if there's anything you should have repaired before you get ready for the busy school year!
