The Best Way to Test Drive a Car

It's time to purchase a new car. You've done your research and you've narrowed down your options. The next step is to get familiar with them by getting behind the wheel and taking them for a spin. It is important that you make the most of your drive in order to help you decide which car is best for you. Here are some things to help you have a successful test drive:

  • When you show up to the dealership you should already know which vehicles you're interested in. You should make sure you have time to test drive your potential candidates back-to-back so that you can make a proper comparison.
  • Treat the car like your own. Pack up the stuff you keep in your car on a regular basis and be sure to bring a pen a paper to write down any notes about each vehicle you test drive. Loading up the car gives you a good idea of what will or won't fit.
  • Once you get behind the wheel and get situated, get to know the car. Learn where the controls are and take note of the comfortability of the seats. Be sure to check the visibility, power, and cabin noise.

When you're done driving all of your options you should take your time and reflect on your options. Don’t let the salesperson pressure you into making a quick decision. Take a tour of the dealership and review the maintenance schedules of the prospective vehicles. Once you've made a decision you can begin the buying process.
