What To Know When Test Driving A Vehicle | Auburn, NY

Test Driving a Vehicle at Fox Honda

You know you're ready to purchase a new or used car, but the options out there are overwhelming. How do you finally narrow down your top choices? The best way to do this is with a test drive. Test-driving a vehicle can help you figure out exactly what you want in your next car. Here's how test-driving works at Fox Honda in Auburn, NY.

How Do I Schedule A Test Drive?

If you're ready to test drive one of the vehicles on our lot, it's a good idea to make an appointment right away. Give Fox Honda a call at (315) 370-1070 and we will set up a time that works with your schedule, allowing you to drive as many or as few vehicles as you want.

How Does Test-Driving Work?

Once you arrive at the dealership for your scheduled test drive, our knowledgeable staff will be ready to help you find the vehicle of your dreams. We want to make sure you're happy with your purchase, and we'll provide the no-pressure environment you need to find the right vehicle for you. You will have to sign some paperwork, but once that's done, we will go on our way. You can get behind the wheel and our salesperson will join you in the vehicle so you can learn more about the vehicle as you're driving.

How Do I Make The Most of It?

While you drive, make sure you think about the way the vehicle feels. Does it accelerate well? How loud is the cabin while you're driving? What's braking like? Compare it to your current vehicle and think about how the way the vehicle drives will fit into your life. Also, try and see how it feels in the cabin. Test the controls on the center console, see if your car seat or any regular cargo you bring with you will easily fit into your vehicle, and more. This will help you find the right vehicle for you.

What Should I Bring?

Why Test-Drive a Honda Vehicle in Auburn, NY

Has it been years since you last bought a vehicle? Is your current ride getting old or unreliable? Do you want to learn about the latest in-vehicle tech and performance? Whether or not you're ready to make a purchase, you're invited to schedule a test drive at Fox Honda in Auburn, New York. From the Civic to the Pilot, it's a great way to experience the Honda lineup and figure out what you want and need from your next vehicle.

Take the first step

Test-driving a vehicle at Fox Honda is a no-strings-attached step. If you haven't gotten behind the wheel of a new car for several years, there's a lot of new technology to catch up on, and a test drive is a great way to do it! A test drive is also ideal if you're considering an upgrade to an SUV like the Honda HR-V or Honda CR-V, or if you're not quite sure which features you really need (as opposed to the ones that would just be nice to have).

Confirm your comfort

You can read about a Honda vehicle's specs and features on a website, but there's nothing like experiencing them in person. Can you enter and exit the vehicle comfortably? Do you have plenty of legroom and headroom? Will the driver's seat be comfortable for your back and can you make the necessary adjustments? Are the display screen, shifter, and vehicle controls easy to reach? Are tech features intuitive and bug-free? There's nothing like a test drive to help you answer these questions.

Experience your ride on the road

A test drive allows you to try out a vehicle's braking, acceleration, and overall feel on the road, but you can learn even more during your time behind the wheel. If ride height is important to you, check whether you can see clearly while you're in traffic. You'll also want to pay attention to how large the vehicle's blind spots are and whether you have a reasonably clear view while changing lanes, backing up, and performing other maneuvers.

Whenever you're ready for a test drive, we're here to help you take the next step! Just give our Fox Honda team a call, contact us via our website, or stop in for a visit during business hours.
