Do You Offer Test Drives?

An old phrase says that there is a sucker born every minute, and if you buy a car without taking a test drive, you might be just another sucker. Car people know that the test drives gives them a chance to try out a new model and see how it handles on the road, but a test drive also lets you see if that car is a good fit for you. At our dealership, we not only offer test drives but encourage our shoppers to take our models out for a spin.

How to Take a Test Drive

To take a test drive, give us a call and let us know you want to come in or just stop by. You can come in on your lunch hour, after you drop the kids off at school or even after work. Take some time to walk around the lot and get a feel for the vehicles that we have in stock. Once you find one that interests you, let one of our agents know that you want to take a test drive. We’ll never pressure to buy a car on the spot, and we’ll even let you take multiple test drives to compare different vehicles.

What to Look for During Your Drive

There are a few things that you need to look at during your test drive, and the first is the comfort level of the vehicle. Do you fit comfortably in the car without your knees pressing against the steering wheel and your head brushing the roof? The seats should adjust to help you feel more comfortable. Once you get that model out on the road, pay attention to how it handles. Does it stop quickly without jarring you? Can you make turns without pulling or tugging on the steering wheel? We also encourage our customers to pay attention to the safety features available on different models.

What Models Can You Drive?

Nearly every model that we have on our lot is available for a test drive. Other dealerships will run your credit and make you jump through hoops before letting you take out a single model, but we want you to feel more comfortable about shopping for a car. We encourage our shoppers to spend time looking at different models and narrowing down their selection. After you decide on a car, let us know that you’re ready for a test drive.

Take a Test Drive Today

Taking a test drive is as easy as stopping by our car lot today. Whenever you have some free time, you can talk to one of our car guys about your wants and needs, and our agents will help you find the right car. During your test drive, you’ll get a feel for how the car handles, the features of that model and even how you fit in that car. After your test drive, you can talk with one of our agents about buying that model or take some time to think about your purchase.
