Take it for a spin and see if it’s a good fit for your lifestyle. Here are some tips for making the most of your test drive:
Before You Drive
Sit in the car of your choice. Not just the driver’s seat, but the passenger seats, front and back. Check for comfort level, ease of getting in and out, and visibility.
Take a few minutes to look at the control panel. If you’re not sure, ask our Salesperson to demonstrate how each feature works.
Adjust the seat, fasten your seat belt, and adjust your rearview and sideview mirrors.
Keep the audio system turned off initially. This is so that you can listen to the engine or determine how much wind noise there may be. You’ll also want to be able to hear our Salesperson as they answer your questions or provide directions.
Check for any blind spots as you change lanes.
Note the feel of the acceleration as you pull out into traffic. Does it have enough get up and go, or does it feel sluggish?
Feel the brakes as you press down on the pedal. It’s not unusual for the brakes in new cars to grab quickly, so it’s best to go easy on them.
Make sure you can reach the knobs and can easily read the control panel.
Determine maneuverability by assessing how well the steering system handles as you round curves and turn into side streets.
Notice if there are any uncomfortable jolts from uneven road surfaces.
If possible, find a nearby highway so that you can see how the vehicle handles at a faster speed.
Upon Your Return
Turn on the audio system to check for clarity.
Take a few minutes to take notes or even take a picture of the vehicle and its sticker price listing all the standard features.
Check out the trunk or cargo space. Investigate any bins or compartments.
Ask your Salesperson any questions you may have.
If you would like to drive a different model, let us know. It’s always best to keep an open mind. You might be surprised to leave with a different vehicle than the one you originally thought you wanted.
