    Crossover SUVs - The Family Car of the 21st Century

    Crossover SUVs - The Family Car of the 21st Century

    According to Wikipedia, as of 2006, more than half of SUVs sold in the United States of America have been of the “crossover” variety. A crossover SUV, also sometimes referred to as simply a “crossover” or occasionally shortened to a “CUV,” is typically a cross between a sedan and a truck-based sport utility vehicle, or SUV. Most often, crossover SUVs are modeled after the body type of a truck-based SUV with the chassis or unibody construction of a sedan. This design generally makes for a significantly more comfortable interior when compared to their truck-based SUV counterparts, however crossovers are known to have less off road capabilities and in many cases are not manufactured with an option for all wheel drive.

I can do this because I am ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified in five repair categories and I own an independent tire and auto repair shop, Car Clinic, in West Palm Beach Florida.
