Test Drive Tips When Visiting Your Car Dealer In Capitol Heights

Test Drive Tips When Visiting Your Car Dealer In Capitol Heights

We have all been in a situation where we purchased something without trying it out first. This often happens when we shop online for clothing or shoes, only to find out that we don’t quite have the right fit when putting them on. Because of the chances that you will not find the right car without test driving it first, you need to have some useful tips handy when you are test driving a car at your local car dealer in Capitol Heights.

A test drive remains one of the more essential elements for the entire car shopping process. You might be able to fall in love with a car from looking at pictures or reading reviews, but you need to get behind the wheel to get a feel for the performance and handling.

Entry and Exit – You need to know that the car is easy to get into and out of in a comfortable manner.

Driving Position/Seating – It is crucial that you have enough legroom, hip space, and head clearance. Are you able to adjust the seat to a good, comfortable position? How do the pedal positions feel?

Acceleration – When you start the test drive,e does the car seem to shift smoothly and quickly? Do you have enough power to get up hills or to head out on the highway?

Braking – Do the brakes feel like they have enough stopping power? How does the pedal feel when you press it?

Finally, you will see that having an open line of communication with the sales staff will be crucial during the test drive. Take the time to ask about any of the features or safety technology that you are unsure of.

We would love to be the car dealer in Capitol Heights. Visit us today at Car Smart to take a test drive or call (888) 292-8115 for inventory information.
