    Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Test Drive 

    Are you considering a car in at  Capital CDJR of Indian Trail in Indian Trail, NC but confused about which one to buy? Before you purchase a car, it’s important that you test drive it first. 

    Taking the vehicle for a spin will help you determine if the car is a perfect fit. So here’s a quick guideline that will equip you with vital information you need to make that important decision.


    1) Take things you usually carry around with you to ensure there are sufficient storage compartments in the car to suit your requirements.

    2) Find out if the car has Bluetooth capabilities. Also, if the vehicle you are test driving has voice recognition, check its responsiveness to your requests.

    3) If you have young kids at home, it's practical to take their car seats and strollers to make sure they can easily fit into the vehicle. Though it is a lot to take for a test drive, ensuring they fit well will save you a lot of trouble later.

    4) Check the infotainment display for its user-friendliness, sound quality, clarity, and other features.

    5) During a test drive in Indian Trail, pay attention to the quietness of the cabin. 

    6) If workable, taking the car for a test drive late evening or at night will help you determine how well the headlights work and if the center console lights up properly.

    7) Test the car on a stretch of the freeway if possible. You want to ensure that the vehicle handles highway driving, and it does in the city.

    8) Check how easy it is to maneuver the car in and out of a tight space, how good the overall visibility is, whether there are any blind spots and if they equip the car to handle blind spots. 


    Regardless of which car you test drive, ensure that its features suit your lifestyle the best. From camping trips and peak hour driving to its towing capabilities and safety and driver assists, make a list of everything you are looking for in a vehicle and research brands and models before you take the vehicle for a spin.
