When you are considering purchasing a new vehicle, one of the first things you will do is take it for a test drive, but do you know exactly what you should look for on your test drive? Check out these 5 test drive tips from All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!
Before The Drive
Adjust the seat, mirrors and steering wheel for a comfortable and safe drive. It is important to do this before you start driving so you will have full visibility while you are test driving the vehicle. Also, to determine if you are comfortable driving the vehicle.
Look at all of your Options
Because certain options and powertrains can greatly alter the feel of a vehicle, it’s important to drive the particular model and trim level you intend to purchase. This is very important to drive the particular trim level you intend on purchasing to see how that trim level drives and feels in comparison to a different model and different trim level.
Remember to review the vehicle’s safety features, such as the number of airbags, active-safety electronics, and adjustable seatbelts. You salesperson will be able to answer all of these questions for you and probably mention some features that may interest you about the vehicle.
Ease of Parking
Find an empty space on the street and Parallel Park the vehicle. Can you see or accurately judge where the corners of the vehicle are? Does it fit easily in a normal parking space? This is especially important if you live in in the city or go to downtown shops a lot.
Connect your Phone to the Volvo Sensus Connect Navigation System
