If you’re like most buyers, you probably head straight to the internet when you’re ready to look for your next vehicle. There are endless resources that can reveal which vehicles are reliable and suited for your needs. For instance, Autotrader releases an annual “Must Test Drive” list with their favorite options.
But who actually test drives vehicles? Well, unsurprisingly a recent study by Autotrader revealed that the majority of drivers see the test drive as a very important step in the buying process. For many, it’s just as important as being able to thoroughly research a vehicle before purchasing it.
Even if you have read multiple reviews of the same vehicle, it’s hard to really know what features are like or how they will work in person. When you take a vehicle out for a test drive, you can experience these amenities in real time, and see how they compare to the descriptions you’ve read online or elsewhere.
Test driving is also the only way for you to know how comfortable you will feel in any given vehicle, and how well your body fits into the design of the vehicle. It’s the best way to get an idea of the ride itself, and how that stands up to expectations and needs.
