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 from All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!
Test Drive Each Candidate
Drive each of your potential candidates so you can make a proper comparison. Take note of how the vehicles drive differently, engine sound or how they handle when driving.
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.
Test the Brakes
Braking is hard to evaluate thoroughly without professional help, but you can do a basic assessment. Feel how the vehicle responds when you depress the brake pedal, both softly and with more force. It should be nice and smooth, and it should be easy to get just the amount of stopping power you need without the car stopping too quickly or not quickly enough.
Connect your Phone to the Uconnect System
Bring your phone along and connect it to the Uconnect System to get the full experience to how the entertainment system will function on a day-to-day basis. Try making a call, changing the radio station, adjusting the air conditioning system, etc. to feel the ease of using the vehicle.
Be a Rear Passenger
We don’t typically ride in the backseat of our vehicles, but you may have passengers from time to time or have children that will ride with you every day. Take the time to sit in the backseat and test it out for yourself. Is there enough room for a car seat? Does it get good air circulation? Is there enough room for more than 1 adult? How many cupholders?
These are just a few things to remember when test driving a vehicle that you are interested in purchasing. Be sure to always ask your Sales Person and Sales Manager any questions or concerns that you may have. Here at All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, we want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your vehicle purchase. We are readily available and look forward to helping you make that decision.
