As I promised in the previous article, I am dedicating this article to provide you helpful tips, and hints you should examine when you test driving the different cars on your ish list. First, lets recap this article series as I discussed the importance of brainstorming, and how starting with a large list then narrowing down is very critical to the satisfaction level associated with the final decision. We then talked about using the internet to your benefit to conduct the groundwork research.
I am to reintroduce the introduction used in the past articles to reinforce its importance before talking about the criteria you should look for in a test drive. Shopping for a used car is not something the average person intends to do very often or at least not as much as he or she goes out grocery shopping. If you go out shopping while hungry you may buy things that you don't need, on the other hand if you go out shopping without a list, the odds are that you are going to get home and figure that you forgot to buy something. I can relate that to shopping for used cars, you have to do your homework, preparation and brainstorming to achieve he best results.
Now that you are behind the steering wheel, you need to determine if the comfort level of the car fits your expectations. Furthermore, analyze the leg, the head room and the ease of using the interior controls. While driving the car, how smooth or harsh is the ride, and make sure that you like the suspension system when you drive over bumps. Last but not least, examine the acceleration to see if it matches your driving habits.
