A car can look perfect in the photos, reviews and pricing, but all that matters is when you get behind that wheel. Hence, test driving is the most essential part of the car buying process. You can save a lot of time at a dealership by doing your due diligence beforehand. It is quite easy to test drive one or two cars so as to gain an idea of which one is good for you rather than taking a bunch of rides for a spin. This helps in saving a lot of your time as well as the dealerships and will let you spend more time in making a decision.

What to look out for before test driving

Do a preliminary walk around the car because sometimes the photos can be deceiving. Is it the same color as you have imagined? If you have a child, will they be fit in the seat in the back? Are the measurements of the car accurate? When you have a tight parking space at home or a full garage that can hardly fit your existing car, ensure that all the measurements are accurate and you won’t have to bring the car back due to a simple oversight. If the measurements of the car aren’t compatible or it doesn’t look like what you pictured it to be, we’ll help you sort this out as well.

During the test drive

Before starting the car, ensure that you sit in every seat to gauge the comfort level of your passengers, adjust the driver’s seat until it feels comfortable, peek around to get acquainted with touchscreens, temperature controls, volume knobs, and anything else that you will use on a regular basis. Turn on the radio to check if it works. The salesperson will be ready with a predetermined route for you, ensure that the route fits your driving needs. Pay special attention to the acceleration, engine and road noise, steering, suspension, and braking when you are driving. Don’t neglect the minor nuances, as they could accumulate themselves into a huge problem down the road.
