Getting the Most Out of Your Test Drive


At Stuart Nissan, our goal is to get you behind the wheel of a vehicle that you’ll love for years to come. Part of finding the perfect vehicle is taking the perfect test drive. We encourage our customers to take a few vehicles out on test drives to compare and be sure they’re getting everything they need out of their new vehicle. So, how do you get the most out of a test drive?

Create Your Everyday Conditions in Your Test Drive

It’s important to drive as you would every day when you take your test drive. If you usually have your children with you, bring them (and their car seats) with you for the test drive. Attempt to drive your route to work at the time that you would normally drive it, etc. This ensures that the vehicle you choose truly meets your specific needs.

Focus on Comfort

While it’s important to test things out like handling and ask as many questions as possible about the cool features of the vehicle, the important everyday comforts are paramount to you being happy with your vehicle. Make sure you and your family members can get in and out of the car without a problem. Check that all the instruments on the dashboard are in an area that you can easily reach. Check out all of storage space and even bring along some things that haul commonly to make sure everything fits.

Ensure You’re Comfortable Driving the Vehicle

Think of the situations that make you uncomfortable on the road as a driver. Try them out in the vehicle you’re test driving. Parallel park, slam on your brakes, or make a tight turn. You want to be absolutely sure that the vehicle handles the way you need it to and is the right size for you to feel safe driving it. Our salespeople always encourage customers to do what they need to do (within reason) to ensure that the car is right for them.
