Looking out for our Favorite Passengers
http://vimeo.com/33219961 Is man's best friend his best passenger, too? Considering they don't care if you're lost, won't second guess your car and are happier the faster you drive (as long as the windows are open) we think so. And, according to a recent AAA/Kurgo survey, 6 out of 10 Americans responded that they drive with their furry friends at least once a month. To honor National Pet Day, Chevrolet pointed out some features that can be helpful for dog owners. The lane-departure warning system, stability and traction control as well as forward collision alerts - all equipped in the Chevrolet Equinox - help you stay alert and aware of potential dangers if you're distracted. Features like Power lift gates just make it easier for them to hop in. The Traverse crossover has flexible and fold-flat seating which obviously creates more space for pets and their toys while the Volt has a rear hatch and fold-down seats which also makes for easy access. Then there's stuff you might not think about, like Remote Unlock (you know, for that one time when maybe you left him too long in the car) and vehicle location. Losing the car is one thing, but the car and the dog is a whole other story. In short, people tend not to pay attention as well with their dogs in the car so preventative tech isn't such a bad thing.
But in the end, just pick the ride that you like the best. Your dog won't care as long he gets shotgun and a well-opened window. But he'd probably also love rolling in '69 Camaro the best, we would.
