Things to Look for While Test Driving a Car

At Hawk Ford of Oak Lawn, your Ford car dealer in Burbank, we realize that the purchase of a car represents a sizeable investment for most people. The decision to buy begins with a test drive, and here are a few tips that will help you find the car, either new or used, that’s right for you.

1) Do some homework – Before you set foot on our lot, decide which type of vehicle works best for your lifestyle. Write down the things you want to look for and consider while you’re test-driving. Only about 32% of car buyers bother to do this advance planning.

2) Bring your crew and some stuff – If you have kids, bring them along and see how easily they can get in and out of the car. Bring your favorite cup and see how easy it is to use the cup holders. Carefully size up the care to make sure things bikes, or other cargo can be loaded and unloaded easily. If it’s space you need, we’ve got a great selection of Ford SUVs, from the Ford Escape to the Ford Flex and the Ford Expedition. 

3) Check out the electronics – Does it have what you want, and do you know how to use it? Ford has integrated Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ making it possible for users familiar with Apple and Android to easily use these interfaces on the dashboard display. You can also get a SYNC® 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen and enjoy an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot.

4) Make the test drive “real” – Drive on both city streets and highways and feel the surge of a Ford EcoBoost® engine while enjoying the safety of BLIS® blind-spot technology. While you’re at it, swing into a parking lot and see how easily one of our Ford vehicles, equipped with BLIS® cross-traffic alert and backup camera, maneuvers in and out of tight spaces.

Finally, there’s also economy of operation. Did you know that Ford is one of the leading producers of affordable electric vehicles in the U.S? That’s true, so be sure to consider our line of high-mileage Ford hybrids. 

Come by today and check out our great selection of new and used Ford vehicles at Hawk Ford. Take more than one for a test drive, and we’re confident we can help you find the one that’s just right for you.
