A test drive is a pivotal point before making your final decision. Sure, you may like the car from the exterior, and it may be priced just right, but is the car right for your driving comfort and enjoyment? Use the following tips to make sure that it is and make the test drive more beneficial.

Stay in the Moment

One of the biggest mistakes that some used car buyers around Lawrence Township or East Windsor make is focusing on the price tag while taking a test drive. If you're worried about whether the price tag is right, it becomes a distraction to know if the car feels right. Stay in the moment and crunch the numbers after the fact. If not, you may find yourself with a car that is more affordable but less enjoyable.

Prepare Questions in Advance

Most of your questions will undoubtedly come up during the selection process and after the test drive. But you should have as many questions prepared in advance as possible. Avoid having a situation where a question that you meant to ask goes unanswered. Use your smartphone to make a list of any questions that are specific to the used car, financing, or about the dealership. By being proactive, you can save yourself a lot of stress and frustration and have a better outcome with your entire buying experience.

Take Your Time

Contrary to what you may think, a test drive doesn't have a time limit. The test drive is your moment to find out how to navigate the car in certain situations such as lane-changing, parallel parking, and highway speeds. Therefore, take your time and don't feel rushed. And don't feel obligated to only drive the car within a few blocks of the dealership.
