How to Ace Your Test Drive at Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM

February 11th, 2019 by

When you take a prospective new vehicle out for a test drive, are you really putting that vehicle through its paces? A lot of times a test drive can seem like a mere formality, but it’s one of the most important factors of the car-buying experience. And at Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we want to make sure you’re getting the most out of yours. So here are our tips for having the most successful test drive.

A good test drive starts with good research. Which vehicle among the wide array of vehicles that are out there most matches your needs? If you’re looking for a truck that combines technology and power with an award-winning interior, then you’re definitely going to want a 2019 RAM 1500. Or are you looking for a thoroughbred muscle car that’s a thrill to drive and a trophy for your driveway? Then you want the 2019 Dodge Challenger. From there, what trim do you want? There are several options to consider, and they affect the power and options available to you.

And once you get into the seat of your prospective new buy, what then? Well, check things out before you get on the road – how does the cabin feel? Is it roomy enough? Does the upholstery feel good? What about the infotainment system – can you easily adjust it on the go? These are just a few of the things you can do sitting in our Thousand Oaks, CA Dodge Dealership.

When you finally hit the road, make sure you do as much as you can to push your car – within reason, of course. Find the highway and test the vehicle’s acceleration, as well as its safety features. Find some stop-and-go traffic to test the blind spot cameras and its braking precision. This is a test, after all.

And when you’re ready to give one to our vehicles, stop into our Los Angeles, CA-area RAM dealership to see if our cars make the grade. We know we will!
