In the last 10-13 years Australians have followed the trend of Americans by having bigger & more interior spacious vehicles. The poor old car sedan is becoming a dinosaur & station wagons are nearly obsolete. The vogue is now hot sportier hatches, SUV`s & better performing 4WDs or All wheel drives.
Queensland is God`s Paradise. Beautiful beaches & Dunes, Rainforests, Mountain ranges, long drives.., Why would you want to live anywhere else?
Families are becoming more adventurous – mountain bikes, camping, fishing- the world is moving, especially on weekends!
This is exactly the reason families are buying bigger more spacious vehicles.
Servicing larger vehicles require a different thought process when it comes to Maintenance & repair:
- Take your Sports utility Vehicle or 4 wheel drive to a proper workshop with appropriate lifting equipment and do not use mobile mechanics, especially when a safety certificate inspection is required.
- Because the SUV, 4WD is generally taller than a regular car (with a higher centre of Gravity) you must ensure the suspension & brakes are in good condition all the time
- Tyres are critical.., Make sure you have the right tyres for what conditions you are using the vehicle for. A word of advice, educate yourself to understand what tyre pressure is required for your vehicle.
- If you have just gone off road through creeks, beaches or streams of water then immediately bring your vehicle in to get gearbox & differential fluids replaced
All wheel drives, four wheel drives & Sports utility vehicles generally are bigger & have higher ground clearance.
A 4 tonne hoist is vital for proper maintenance as are heavy duty air guns & equipment.
