9 Things You Didn’t Think You Needed For Your Car

9 Things You Didn’t Think You Needed For Your Car
Posted on Thursday, April 27, 2017

You might think that your car is perfect, and it has everything that you have ever wanted. However, these items will make you think again:

Useful Car Accessories

If you have a new car or an old one, these accessories are great for anyone. They will help make driving easier and possibly even safer.

Blind Spot Mirrors: Do you have a car that has many blind spots? Do you try to change lanes and come close to hitting someone next to you? You should buy 2-inch blind spot mirrors, which will make your life a lot easier and less stressful. 

Car Charger: Are there times you have passengers in your car and somehow all of your phones die at once? All of a sudden everyone is fighting over the only charger. Fight no more! Lightning Car Charger makes a 4 port USB charger allowing you to charge up to four cell phones or other electronics at once.

Car Seat Covers: You need these if you have a dog that loves to find the biggest mud puddle at the dog park or loves to swim. They make waterproof car seat covers for every type of vehicle.

Cell Phone Holder: Sometimes your cup holders are full and you have nowhere to put your phone. If you have this problem often, you can buy a cell phone holder that either connects to your air vents or sticks to your dash.

Air Freshener: There are many different styles of air fresheners. You can buy some that hang from your mirror, go in your air vents, make your own or even buy some that go under your seat. Make your car smell fresh again.

Bike Rack: If you drive a car or even a small SUV but love to go biking, they make many different styles of bike racks that go on the back of your vehicle. This allows you to keep your bike in one piece instead of having to take it apart to fit it in your vehicle.

Extra Space: Is space your main problem when going on long road trips or sporting events? A Few different brands make an extra storage compartment that you can bolt onto the top of your vehicle. This allows you to store extra luggage or sporting equipment on top of your vehicle and have more room for everyone inside.

Tailgate Grill: Are you a super fan? Do you never miss a tailgate event when your team is in town? You can buy a grill that connects to the hitch on your vehicle. It swings away from your vehicle so you aren’t close enough to cause any damage if the flames get out of control.

Drop Stop: Do you lose things in the black hole between your seat and center console? Then you have to spend time trying to fish it out. There is a product called the drop top that fits perfectly in the gap so you won’t lose your phone, change or other items in that space again.

Accessories Are Not The Problem

Have you tried everything to make your vehicle more compatible with your needs? Sometimes space, maintenance or other issues arise and it’s time to get a new vehicle.
