Test Drive Checklist
Here are a few features you should check before you begin the test drive.

  • Windows: Including the sunroof.

  • Door Locks: Does the vehicle have remote keyless entry? Check out the lock and unlock buttons.

  • Seat Adjustment: In order for your test drive to be as successful and informative as possible, your seat needs to be adjusted correctly. Take your time and get comfortable.

  • Cargo Versatility: Does the vehicle have a 60/40 split folding back seat? See how easy it is to fold it down and back up again.

  • Parking Brake: Test and see how hard it is to engage and disengage.

  • Air Vents: Test out the AC. See what kind of adjustments you can make to airflow and fan speed. Does the air circulate well in the back seat?

  • Mirrors: Take time to adjust your mirrors.

  • Windshield Wipers: Check out the different speeds and the window cleaning feature.

  • Radio: It is important to test the radio and speakers out before you begin your drive. During your drive you will want the radio to be off or set at a low volume. This way you can listen to the vehicle as it runs.

  • Infotainment features: What kind of infotainment features does the vehicle have? Keep in mind that some features are subscriptions and might not be available during a test drive.

  • Navigation: Enter in an easy address and see how the navigation works. Than try an address a little farther outside the city.
