From researching vehicles you are interested in, to looking for specific inventory and even beginning the financing process – more and more of the car shopping process is now taking place on the internet.
However, there’s one aspect of the car buying experience that can’t be replicated online (yet!) and that’s the Test Drive.
One of the most important parts of buying or leasing your next vehicle is getting behind the wheel and taking your potential new car, truck or SUV for a spin around town to make sure it’s the right vehicle for you.
The test drive is also one of the most often skipped or overlooked parts of buying a new car. Sometimes we fall in love with the look of a vehicle and don’t seriously put it through its paces. Other times we are so excited to drive our new baby home we skip the test drive all together.
Either way (and I can’t stress this enough!) you should always take a test drive. And not just a spin around the block either. Roll your sleeves up, put on those driving gloves and take a nice, thorough test drive.
So what exactly should you be looking for when you test drive your next vehicle? I’m glad you asked!
