Tips for Test Driving Used Cars

Test driving the car you want to buy can be overwhelming. You have a lot on your mind, so being prepared can help you make the most of your time in the car. Before you fall in love with the car, it’s important to take it out on the road. A sportscar looks sleek and sexy, but it will have less space than you may be used to. This could be uncomfortable over time.

Before your test drive, check the car out. This is for your peace of mind. The tires can tell you a lot about the car. If the tread is uneven or worn, there may an alignment problem. Check underneath for leaks. Our mechanics check every car before it goes out on the lot for sale, but we want you to feel good about your purchase. You can also look at the condition of the hoses to get a feel for how the car has been maintained. They shouldn’t be cracked and worn.

You probably want to drive around ten kilometres to really get a feel for how the car handles. Turn the music off for most of the drive so that you can listen to the car. Make sure you drive as you normally do and never violate traffic rules. Keep notes about how the vehicle meets your priorities. You can turn on the sound system for a few minutes while driving to test the sound system. Don’t forget to park and back up, make a right and left turn during the test drive to really see how the car does under different conditions.
