How to Test Drive Woodhouse Ford Used Trucks

June 15th, 2021 by

If you’re shopping for a used truck, reading about specs can be helpful, but you don’t want to neglect the test drive. These tips will help you get the most out of test-driving our Woodhouse Ford used trucks:


Drive Where You Drive

Because a test drive is a try out for a vehicle you may own for years to come, you have to be sure it’s what you want. This is why you should simulate your daily driving experience as much as possible.

If you can’t drive on the actual roadways you may travel on every day, do your best. Take the truck you’re interested in over a few hills if you live up a slope. See how it gets up to speed on a highway.

Drive it on more crowded roads to get a feel for its stop-and-go traffic ability. Take some turns and curves to see how it handles around bends.

Focus on the Details

It’s always exciting when you’re behind the wheel of a new or different truck. Check some of the details the specs won’t tell you about.

How comfortable is the seat? This is something many people overlook. Could you imagine sitting on it for hours at a time? Get a feel for the space in the passenger seat and back rows too. How is the head- and legroom? Will everyone you plan on driving fit comfortably?

What about the tech? Is the infotainment system easy to use? Will you get things like smartphone connectivity and USB ports?

Don’t be afraid to grill your dealer about all of the things that are important to you.
