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 Chevrolet North to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!
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.
Before The Drive
Adjust the seat, mirrors and steering wheel for a comfortable and safe drive. It is important to do this before you start driving so you will have full visibility while you are test driving the vehicle. Also, to determine if you are comfortable driving the vehicle.
Explain your Typical Vehicle Uses
Give your Sales Person insight for what you need a new vehicle for; pulling a boat or trailer, multiple children (car seats), ready to downsize from your current vehicle, upgrading to a newer model, safety, etc. This will help your Sales Person direct you in the right direction to meet the needs of your lifestyle and also show you the key features that may help you.
Connect your Phone to the Chevrolet MyLink
Bring your phone along and connect it to the Chevrolet MyLink 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.
Consider Taking Drive at Night
It’s better to visually inspect a vehicle in daylight. But if you become serious about buying it, you should also try to test drive it at night. That’s the only way you’ll be able to tell how well the headlights perform, how and which switches, gauges, and controls are lighted for nighttime use.
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 Chevrolet North, 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.
