Is it car buying time for you? Have you finally found the new Jeep® SUV or RAM truck that works for your needs? Sometimes, a vehicle may check all your boxes for space, fuel efficiency, style, and everything in between, but once you get behind the wheel, it just isn’t a fit.
There are a lot of important reasons to test drive a car other than just making sure it works well and is comfortable to ride in. You also want to ensure it lives up to your specific standards. We offer a few helpful tips to look at when test driving a new vehicle here at David Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM.
- Features: Does the vehicle you are looking at have the safety features that you need? Do you want voice command for seamless communication with friends and family? Do you want an automated liftgate? Do you need help with parallel parking or adaptive cruise control? In the research stage, write down a list of wants and needs when it comes to amenities. When it’s time to test drive, we’ll make sure you’re sampling the vehicles that aligns with your requirements.
- Test drive: Yes, you may have maneuvered around the car lot, and it feels like a smooth ride. But, how does that ride feel at 40 mph? Is the braking responsive? How does it feel turning at a tight angle? Can you easily get in and out of tight spaces and seamlessly back into a parking spot? Perhaps the RAM Heavy Duty truck you loved online is a little bigger than you expected, and you’d be better off with a RAM 1500.
There’s only one way to know for sure if the vehicle you want is the vehicle for you: get behind the wheel! Come out and see us at our Dodge dealership near West Chester, PA to take a few models out on the road. We’ll see you soon!
