How To Test Drive The Car Of Your Dreams

Our goal at Honda of Ocala is satisfied customers. We want you to drive away happy. To make sure you love the car you buy, it’s important to make the most of your test drive. Though it’s hard to find out everything in a test drive, if you follow these simple tips, you can learn a lot in a short time.

First and foremost, it’s a good idea to research the vehicle or vehicles you’re considering before you visit the dealership. This not only gives you a heads up on many of their trims, specs, and features, but it can also bring up questions you’d like to ask the salesman when you get to the dealership.

Tips For Your Test Drive

Your test drive should start before you get inside the vehicle. It’s important to talk a walk around the exterior and check out features like the trunk or liftgate, the cargo space in the rear, and whether or not there are roof rails for extra storage. If the vehicle is used, you can check out exterior conditions and other factors that might make a difference in your decision.

Once you get inside the vehicle, make sure the driver’s seat adjusts to a comfortable driving position for you, and look over the instrument panel and infotainment system. This is a great time to have the salesman show you the information and entertainment features, as well as any driver assistance and safety features the car might have.

Make The Most Of Your Time On The Road

During your test drive, make sure to drive on the highway and on city streets to see how the car handles at high and low speeds. You’ll also want to pay attention to how the car accelerates, how it takes corners, and how it manuevers during parallel parking and backing up.

Make sure to test safety features like Blind Spot Monitor and Smart Cruise Control, and don’t forget to ask about the fuel economy and what kind of gas the vehicle takes. If it’s a hybrid or electric vehicle, it’s important to find out charge times and charging stations.
