SERE | 5 Tips for Test Driving a Car

Here at SERE we understand that going on a test drive can be an exciting yet daunting experience.  Here’s some handy tips to help you feel at ease and get the most out of the test drive.

TIP 1 - It’s really important to find a car that you’re happy with so make sure you take your time, try the car out on as many different roads as possible and take a second test drive if needs be!

TIP 2 - When you first hop into the car, don’t feel you have to immediately start the engine.  Comfort is key, so take a few minutes to adjust your seats and mirrors, get familiar with the controls and ensure you can get easily in and out of the car.

TIP 3 - Don’t be afraid to bring the kids, your partner or a friend along for the drive.  You want the test drive to feel as realistic as possible to ensure the car fits in with your family and/or lifestyle.

TIP 4 - You’ll have plenty of time on the drive, so test out the brakes and visibility, practice a few manoeuvres and drive around a roundabout.  When you return to the showroom, have a go at parking up to see how easy it will be.

TIP 5 - Finally, don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions or take that second test drive!  Our team are always on hand to offer help and advice and we’ll do our very best to find the perfect car for you.
