5 Tips To Properly Test Drive Used Cars For Sale




Buying a used car can be exciting, but the test drive can feel overwhelming. Here at Terre Haute Auto (a certified dealer!), we want to equip you with the knowledge to conquer your test drive. These 5 tips will turn you from a nervous rider into a confident car critic:




  1. Inspect Before You Drive: Don't just jump in! Take time to examine the car's exterior for dents, scratches, and undercarriage damage. Check the tires, brakes, and other key components. Look inside for any wear and tear. A thorough inspection can uncover hidden issues.

  2. Get Comfortable, Get Focused: Once inside, adjust the seat, steering wheel, and mirrors for optimal comfort and visibility. Turn off the radio to minimize distractions. You're here to assess the car, not jam to tunes.

  3. Take Your Time on the Road: Don't rush! Treat each car like a potential long-term partner. Drive on various roads (highway, city streets) to experience handling, acceleration, and braking. If you're close to home, see if the car fits in your garage.

  4. Listen Up! Feel the Drive: Pay close attention to any unusual noises from the engine or vibrations in the steering wheel. Don't ignore these red flags! Report any concerns to the dealer so they can address them before you buy.

  5. Take Notes, Compare, Conquer: Jot down the pros and cons of each test drive. This record will help you compare features and ultimately choose the car that best suits your needs.
