Why You Should Take a Test Drive Before You Buy

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid

If you are buying a new Toyota, a used car, or a certified pre-owned vehicle, it is essential to take a test drive (or several) before committing to a vehicle purchase. With our test-drive guide below, drivers from North Miami Beach to North Miami will have all the tools they need to be ready to make an educated car-buying decision.

Six Things to Assess During a Test Drive

  1. The Look: If the look of a car is important to you, then you’ll want to see it in person before buying.
  2. The Cabin: “100.5 cubic feet of passenger volume” is hard to visualize until you actually sit inside a car and experience it for yourself.
  3. The Controls: Making sure the controls are intuitive is essential, especially is the vehicle features advanced technology.
  4. The Features: Whether in the base trim or the top-level model, try out all features first-hand to see if you like them.
  5. The Handling: It’s important for the driver to feel in-control on the roads — a test drive can assure the vehicle handles well and you don’t get a marshmallow on wheels.
  6. The Dealership: If you are purchasing at a dealership and plan to return for regular service, a test drive can help you size up the dealership and the staff.
