Test driving a variety of new Chevrolets can be very exciting. But to make sure that you select a car that you will be happy with in the long run, you’ll have to be meticulous about the details of your test drive. Here are some of the essential tips for how to test drive a new Chevy vehicle.
Experience the Passenger Seat First
One of the best things that you can do during a test drive is asking the salesperson to drive the new Chevy first. This allows you to focus on the features of the car that you might overlook when you’re behind the wheel, such as the controls for the various features on the center stack or the settings of the seats.
Once you’re behind the wheel of the new Chevy, get fully adjusted to the driver’s seat. Make sure that the driver’s seat, mirrors, steering wheel, seatbelt and foot pedals are adjusted to your liking. After you start the car and begin to drive, take careful note of how the car behaves on the road. Pay attention to the way the car accelerates, brakes, corners and goes over rough pavement. Make sure that the new Chevy that you’re driving has decent visibility, especially if this is a car for your family. See if you can take the car on the highway for a brief period of time to see how much wind or road noise you can hear inside the cabin. You should also try and test the car at dusk just to see how the car’s headlights and cabin lights compare to other Chevrolet vehicles that you test drive.
