If you’re reading this, you’ve probably chosen your used car model by now. You’ve likely taken care of all the necessary paperwork to make car ownership easy. Before you finalize your purchase decisions, however, it’s important to test drive the used car first.

A test drive lets you get a “feel” for the car. The car may have features to die for, but if you feel uncomfortable in any way while you’re behind the wheel, it may be best to come back another day, or choose another car. Make sure you allocate enough time to research before your test drive appointment. Don’t forget to keep these tips in mind for that appointment.

Choose the date and place for your test drive carefully. Get adequate rest before your scheduled test drive so that you remain fully alert. Know what terrain you’ll frequently drive on; for instance, if you’re going to use the car to travel on a bumpy road, simulate the same in your test drive. Don’t test drive on jam-packed highways.

Inspect the car’s exterior carefully. Don’t immediately rush to drive your new car. Take a good look around it; check the trunk. Gently wipe a white glove or any light-colored cloth over the car to check for stains; watch out for rust and scratches as well.

Check how you feel while the car is parked. Note how you feel while you’re in the driver’s seat. Do you feel relaxed and ready to go, or do you need a lot of adjustments to feel comfortable? Don’t be afraid to fiddle with the controls of the used vehicles Edmonton dealers offer; turn on the air conditioner, the radio, the music player, and any other features that aren’t directly involved in driving. Note how much or how little effort it takes for you to turn on the engine with the keys.

Drive. Don’t push the speed limits immediately; otherwise, you might strain and damage the mechanisms of the used cars in Edmonton. Note how quickly the steering wheel and the brakes respond to your hands and feet, respectively; if it’s safe, take your hands off the wheel, and look for any signs of front-end alignment problems, such as slightly turning one way. Drive on different routes (e.g. on intersections, small streets, curving streets), and observe how easy (or how difficult) it is to park the car.

If you find any problems with the car, report it to your dealer immediately. Otherwise, you can drive away with one of the best used vehicles Edmonton can give. For more information, you may read caranddriver.com/reviews/how-to-test-drive-a-car-feature.
