You’ve found a vehicle that checks all the right boxes on paper. Now you’re ready to come visit our used car dealer in Winston-Salem for a test drive. Let us give you some tips on what to look for once you’re behind the wheel of your prospective purchase.

Sit Back and Relax

No matter what kind of vehicle you’re looking for, we know the kind you’re not looking for: one that doesn’t offer enough legroom to be sufficiently comfortable for yourself and your passengers. We’ll offer the opportunity to spend some time in the passenger seats, so feel free to stretch your legs to be sure your whole crew will have enough room.

Bring What You Need

You keep a lot of important things in your car day in and day out. Make sure they fit in your next ride! This is especially crucial for child seats, sporting goods, and any equipment you need for work that you bring along for every drive. The trunk should accommodate everything you bring along, and the child seats should fit easily so your littlest passengers can stay comfortable and safe.

What’s Within Reach?

Once you’re behind the wheel, it’s important to make sure that all the features you need for a fulfilling drive are within reach. Adjust the steering wheel and pedals as needed. Check that the dials and switches you need—for example, air conditioning controls, parking brake, or the gear shift—are easily accessible and in place that’s comfortable.

See Clearly

In the exciting moment of driving a car that’s new-to-you, you may forget to double-check one thing: visibility. It’s simple enough to determine how well you can see out of the front and back windows, but a separate challenge to be sure you have the visibility you need for every situation. For example, assess the blind spots of the car, truck, van, or SUV you’re considering, and carefully pay attention to the effectiveness of the rear window when you’re out for a test drive.
