You’ve decided that you want to purchase a used vehicle, which is a great way to save money and value. But how do you go about test driving it? Here, we give you a few tips for test-driving a used car to help make the process easier.
Give it a good once
over — inside and out. Before you even get into the car for a test drive,
make sure you look it over. Examine its exterior for any rust or scratches,
including its windshield. Make sure that the tires are in good condition and
that there is a spare. Inside the vehicle, check out how well the upholstery
has held up, the fit of the panels, and all of the electrical components.
When you get to driving, listen to various components to help detect any
issues. Is the engine purring along like it should? Do you hear a screeching
sound every time you hit the brakes? There are certain sounds that can indicate
issues with the vehicle, so make sure you pay close attention.
Get a second opinion.
If you’re not sure about the quality of the vehicle, then get someone that you
trust to give it a go, too. They can either confirm the used vehicle isn’t as
great as it should be or that it’s fine.
