Dog owners are a special breed of drivers. When they shop for a used car they have a list of requirements that can be quite different from other drivers, which tends to make the process a bit of a challenge.

Must-haves

Some of the typical items/features dog owners look for when purchasing a used car include:

  • Easy to clean interior
  • Durable and strong interior
  • A safe place for the dog to lie down and sit while in motion
  • The ability to keep the dog separate from passengers
  • The car must be easy enough for dogs to get in and out of on their own, or for you to lift them in and out of it
  • Windows that allow for ventilation where the dog will be

The top five

Keeping these must-haves in mind we’ve come up with a list of the top five vehicles that are bound to please the dog owners out there.

  • Kia Soul: If it's safety that you're concerned about then you'll appreciate the fact that the Soul has side curtain air bags. In addition, this one provides space for your dog to lounge in the back. Keep in mind if you have a large dog crate this one may be a bit too small.

  • Jeep Wrangler: If you don't care about added bells and whistles for you, and you're just looking for a robust vehicle that can handle a variety of terrain while keeping your dog comfortable, this is a great option.

  • Honda Element: If your dog is the kind that loves getting messy then the waterproof interior, including the seats, in the Honda Element will really speak to you. The problem with this one is that it may be hard to find since the last year it was made was 2011.

  • Ford Flex: The 2012 Ford Flex makes for a great option for dog owners. The low profile on this one makes it easy to get in and out of, it seats up to seven passengers comfortably, and thanks to the room in the back you can stow large dog crates.

  • Dodge Journey: Where the Journey really stands out is in its large amount of cargo space. This means the pets can be safely stowed in a crate and out of the way of the driver and passenger. There is even an optional cooler in the dash that you can use for keeping cool water and treats for your dog.

Final thoughts

If possible, when test-driving the vehicles you may want to ask if you can bring your dog along just to see how it works out.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
