You’ve done your research on the best car or truck for your lifestyle and transportation needs, and you know what options you’re interested in. Now it’s time for a test drive—here are a few tips to make your next test drive a great experience.
Make an appointment. Call ahead and set up an appointment at the dealership before your test drive. Scheduling an appointment gives the dealer the opportunity to find the vehicle you’re interested in and bring it out of inventory ahead of your visit, and can save you time on test drive day. If you plan to compare different models, drive the vehicles back-to-back on the same day so that you can make an accurate comparison.
