Introduction and question
I just bought a 2016 Sorento SX with 30K miles. This is my first Kia, coming from owning Toyotas, lots of Subarus. Very impressed with Kia so far. Enjoyed browsing through this forum and learning a lot about the car and the owners community.
I noticed that my car has a spare tire stored underneath the car. I live in NYC and if I know anything about city life this tire will not be attached to my car for long if it stays in it's current position. Wondering if any of you have experience securing spare tires stored on the outside of your cars? I saw a few spare tire locks on amazon, but they seem to be more suited to vertical spares mounted on the back of a car. Of course I can just buy a security cable an attach the spare tire to the undercarriage, but I'm hoping that there are more elegant solutions.
Additionally, if anyone has in mind a set of essential accessories you got for your Sorento, feel free to share. I'm thinking about getting a hitch and roof crossbars, any preferred manufacturers?
Looking forward to learning more about these cars over the many years of safe and enjoyable driving.
Thank you, Alex.
