There are a lot of things to keep in mind when you test drive a used vehicle. So many things, in fact, that it can seem a bit overwhelming. The team at Quattro® Motors wants to make sure our Redford, MI area customers get a car that meets all of their needs, which is why we want to share some tips for test driving a used vehicle.

Before the Test Drive

The first thing to do is thoroughly examine the exterior. If there is any damage, decide if it is a deal-breaker for you before moving on. Open and close all of the doors, as well as the trunk or tailgate. Now sit down inside the vehicle. You should do more than sit in the driver's seat. Instead, you will want to try out all of the seats to make sure they will offer enough space and support for your Livonia area passengers.

During the Test Drive

While driving the car, use all of your senses to make sure everything is working to your standards. Keep the stereo off so that you can hear the vehicle at work. Pay attention to how the car shifts, as well as how it feels when it brakes. Accelerating slowly is a great way to check to see that the transmission is working properly. Make sure that the steering is responsive and that the steering wheel returns to the center position easily after turns.
