Tips for Taking a Test Drive
Taking a test drive is one of the most exciting and important parts of the car buying process. At Hardy Superstore, our sales associates encourage you to be thorough in your test drive and to drive as many cars as you need to. Here are some tips for making your test drive a good one!
Know Your Priorities
Shopping used vehicles opens up a whole new world when it comes to choices. With so many makes, models, and price points available, it’s imperative that you set your priorities when you come to shop. Make a list of must-haves and the staff at Hardy Superstore will help you find vehicles that match what you need.
Set a Firm Budget
It’s easy to get carried away and become interested in a vehicle that might not be the right choice for you financially. Know what you can afford by going over all your monthly expenses and applying for pre-approval. Hardy Superstore has a wide range of vehicles at all price points, so we’re confident we will find you something you love at a price you can afford.
Take Your Time
Never feel rushed during your test drive and don’t feel that you should only test drive one vehicle. Really get a feel for each vehicle you’re considering and spend time in both the driver’s seat and the passenger seats. Examine the cargo space, features, etc. to ensure that you will love the vehicle for the long haul.
Recreate Your Commute
It’s especially helpful if you can test drive the vehicle at the time of day and on the same route that you drive most. This means that you will see how you feel in the car in the conditions that you’ll be driving it the most.
