Cars come packed with features both inside and out which car owners love to use for anything ranging from a more comfortable commute to work to a weekend warrior road trip. That is why we here at Valenti Volkswagen of Mystic located right in Mystic, CT want to be sure that you're informed about how to properly use your roof rack.

First, you will want to read the manual to make sure that you have properly secured it to the roof of your vehicle. The manual will give you specific instructions on how to do this. If not done properly, the roof rack and anything secured to the roof rack can fall off while you're driving.

Also, drivers are encouraged to remove the rack when you're not using it. This is because the additional material on top of your roof adds weight and decreases how aerodynamic your car is which can lower fuel efficiency.
