When you are considering purchasing a new vehicle, one of the first things you will do is take it for a test drive, but do you know exactly what you should look for on your test drive? Check out these 5 test drive tips to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!
Before The Drive
Adjust the seat, mirrors and steering wheel for a comfortable and safe drive. It is important to do this before you start driving so you will have full visibility while you are test driving the vehicle. Also, to determine if you are comfortable driving the vehicle.
Take your time!
Never rush, it’s always best to allow time for you to get comfortable and feel at ease so you can really image yourself in the vehicle each day.
Drive on Different Kinds of Roads
Each dealership has their own Test Drive Route – this route allows you to experience different kinds of road conditions and how the vehicle handles the road in various conditions.
Take a Look Around
The driver’s and front passenger’s doors may be large and easy to open and close, but also examine the ease of entry and exit for rear-seat occupants, including ingress and egress to the third row of seats, if applicable, and how difficult it is to install a child seat. Are the rear seats adjustable, comfortable, and sufficient in size, and do they fold down for greater cargo capacity?
Look at the Features of the Vehicle
Observe how certain features might become irritating in day-to-day use, such as inadequate storage cubbies and cup holders, as well as a trunk that is difficult to operate or has an opening that is too small or too high.
