Test driving a car you’re serious about purchasing is one of the most important parts of the buying process. A test drive allows you to learn more about the car with a hands-on approach you can’t get from walking around the vehicle or seeing it online. Here’s how to make the most of your test drive from us here at Sarant Cadillac.
- Ride – Hit the highway and accelerate until you’re up to the speed of traffic. If the car can’t accelerate well enough to get you on the highway safely, it may be necessary to pass on it, especially if you do a lot of highway driving. Find some rough road and see how bumpy the ride is. If you don’t feel in control or the car rides too rough, it’s time to look into another model.
- Parking – See how well you can park the car by parallel parking a few times in a safe, spacious area. Back in and out of a driveway to see what kind of visibility the car offers. If the car is equipped with a rearview camera, how clear is the picture?
- Comfort – Throughout your test drive, make sure you take into account how comfortable the seats are. Can you easily reach the controls? If you couldn’t be comfortable taking a long trip, it’s time to look into another car.
