There is no better way to get a good look at a vehicle than by getting behind the wheel yourself, though it is important that you know what to look for when you do so. For best results keep the following test drive checklist in mind.
How easy is it to get in and out of the vehicle? Be sure to consider this from the point of view of every passenger.
How comfortable are the seats? How much leg room is there? Could you comfortably fit everyone and everything you need in there?
How responsive is the acceleration? Test this out both from a standing start as well as on the highway.
How responsive are the brakes? Does the vehicle pull to one side when braking or stay straight? Do the brakes make any worrying noises?
Can you clearly see the road as well as all those important instruments from the driver’s seat?
Does the vehicle have all of the features that you consider to be priorities? Can you easily reach and control them all? Do they all work?
How smooth is the vehicle’s handling at both low and high speeds? Does it have a good turning radius?
Can you picture yourself driving this vehicle every day? Is it available in the colour you want? Do you like the way the interior looks?
Finding your perfect vehicle takes time, effort and patience; however, a quality test drive can make it easier to narrow down your options.
