DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?
<BR> SCRIPT: Zero to Sixty, I'm Brian Osuch. (SFX: Ignition) Are you starting up the car and taking the family on a summer road trip? GM's James Bell says there are a few ways to successfully prepare before hitting the open road.
CUT: (Bell) The first thing to think about is where you are going? Come up with a destination and map out the route. Then, think about who's going on the trip. If you have young kids – make sure to plan rest stops every two or three hours. It's also a good idea to sight see along the way. This keeps everyone entertained and less likely to ask – are we there yet?
SCRIPT: Bell says there are few things to consider before choosing a vehicle.
CUT: (Bell) When it comes to getting the right road trip car for your family, the first thing is be rational. Pick the right vehicle for what you need. If you need a bunch of space because you've got a big family, look at a vehicle like the Chevrolet Traverse or Equinox. But, for many of us… a nice family four door sedan might work just fine. And lets be honest, today's modern sedan has trunks that can take more stuff than you probably need to carry.
SCRIPT: Bell also says be prepared for the unexpected, and pack a first-aid kit. For more, log onto GM-dot-com. That's Zero to Sixty from GM.
