Do your homework.

Learn about all the options. How many miles per gallon does this baby get? What comes standard? How much is the upgrade?

Do inspect the interior.

Open and close the windows. Turn on the heater and the A/C. Where are the wipers? Move the seats around. Get really comfortable with everything you’ll touch everyday. Find the parking brake.

Do try a range of roads.

Do test the brakes.

Don’t rush your test drive.


Every test drive could lead to a potential big financial decision. Don’t skip the test drive! We see people try to skip it all the time. Drive the vehicle for a bit.

Don’t test drive 80 cars.


You’ll start forgetting what you liked or didn’t like, and it makes the decision so much more difficult. Come with a few in mind that you really researched online first, and drive those.

Don’t forget to ask questions.
