Of course you would love to be able to ride your motocross bike everywhere, but the reality is, at some point you're going to need to transport it. A cargo van of almost any make or model would be good for this purpose, but if you need a vehicle that is every bit as suitable for in-town driving during the week as it is for indulging your weekend passion, there are several used cars you can consider. Our top picks are the Subaru Impreza Outback Sport, Toyota Corolla Hatchback, VW Jetta Wagon, Volvo C30, and the Ford Contour, and of which will deliver more than enough power to allow you to trailer your motocross bike.

  • Subaru Impreza Outback Sport: Practically any Subaru is fine for trailering a dirt bike, but we like the wagon because it also provides plenty of room for you to stow your gear. Most used Outbacks are rated for around 1,500 pounds, with the newer ones handling even more while delivering better mileage. You’ll also appreciate the comfortable ride after you’ve spent a long day on your bike.

  • Toyota Corolla Hatchback: The Corolla’s towing capacity is essentially the same as that of the Outback, and again, you’ll have plenty of room for tools and other gear. We also like the way it handles, and the great gas mileage. This is definitely a great car for the motocross enthusiast.

  • VW Jetta Wagon: The Jetta wagon is another car that will serve you very well on your daily commute. And when the weekend rolls around and it’s time to take a road trip to your motocross event, you’ll appreciate the outstanding gas mileage. The wagon also provides lots of room for whatever you need to take along with you.

  • Volvo C30: The Volvo C30 is very similar to the Ford Focus and the Mazda 3. The difference is that it can easily handle a trailer along with 2,000 pounds of cargo. This is a solid, reliable vehicle.

  • Ford Contour: This comfortable family sedan also has no trouble handling 2,000 pounds of cargo. While perhaps not the first vehicle you would think of when considering trailering a dirt bike, we put this on our list because not only does it deliver the goods in terms of power and towing capability, no one does an interior like Ford. And at the end of the day, you’ll be glad you chose such a comfortable ride.

These five vehicles are great for motocross transportation, and will also serve you well the rest of the week.

Toyota Camry - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Merritt Island, Florida
On time and found this car to be a very good buy. Suggested that I have a front end brake job, and the dealer is doing that for me as part of the deal. I am very pleased with the inspection Damian has provided and will call again in the future.

Kia Spectra - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - South Gate, California
Thanks Willie, for your professional and personal service with this inspection and following up with me by phone! I really appreciate your efforts. You found things that I did not find when I test drove the car and as a result, I decided NOT to buy that car. I informed the dealership contact that I had regarding why I did not buy that car and gave them feedback on improving their own service for the future. I feel the money for the inspection was well spent as I could have made a big mistake and might have bought that car. Thanks to you, I avoided that potential problem. I have since gotten another car and feel good about. You helped me a lot and I thank you again! It is not fun to have one's own car totalled through no fault of your own and HAVE to buy a used car to replace in a short time, like I had to do. So again, thank you, thank you, thank you! ....Roseann

Ford Thunderbird - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Phoenix, Arizona
This is the second time this week that Benji has inspected a car for me before purchase. His reports are clear and thorough, saving me a lot of money from buying a lemon. He is dependable and honest. Even after the inspections, I kept contacting him with question after question. He answers them all and even sends me additional information. I totally recommend him!

Benji went through a flooding situation to inspect my car. His inspection was thorough and professional. I emailed him numerous times, and he answered each and every one of them. He even has a good sense of humor. Thanks to his hard work and thorough inspection, I was saved from buying a potential lemon. Thanks, Benji.
