    Tips for Test Driving a Used Luxury Vehicle

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you’ve always wanted to enjoy the timeless style, cutting-edge features, and heart-racing performance of a luxury car, buying used might be the best way to go. Not only will you save thousands of dollars off the new car price, but a pre-owned luxury vehicle will also save you thousands more in depreciation costs. However, with so many luxury used cars to choose from, you need to make sure that you find the model that is right for you and your family. To make sure that you drive away with the perfect vehicle, here are a few tips for test driving a used luxury car.

    Take in the Exterior

    There’s a reason luxury cars stand the test of time: they were designed to. Like a beautiful work of art, fine luxury vehicles never go out of style. Before you sit behind the wheel, take in the exterior design of the vehicle, and pay close attention to the minor elements that set certain makes and models apart. Don’t settle on a used luxury car when there is bound to be one you absolutely love.

    Pay Attention to the Ride

    After you adjust the seat and buckle up, it’s time to bring the vehicle to life. Before you drive off the lot, listen to how loud or quiet the engine is. This is also a great time to try out the navigation and entertainment system (if so equipped). As you drive around town, pay attention to crucial performance factors like acceleration, braking, and cornering.

    Ask About Special Features

    During your test drive, or when you return to the dealership, ask the associate about any special features that you may not be aware of. Used luxury cars often come with a long list of advanced safety and entertainment technologies, and not all of them are apart during a short test drive. Talking with your associate about each model will give you a better picture of what each vehicle offers.

    • I recently purchased my third car from Adam. My brother just recently purchased his first. We were recently laughing at how is it possible to receive a 4 year old car that looks better then a new one in the show room? I am a former Toyota dealer who knows automobiles. They must select their cars very carefully from a lot of them, check them... More

    How to Choose the Right Luxury Vehicle for Your Needs

    Last updated 1 year ago

    There are a lot of luxury vehicles to choose from, but that doesn’t mean all of them are right for your needs. To make sure that you get the most of out of your vehicle, make sure to choose a model that matches your lifestyle and meets all your daily driving needs. For instance, if you have a large family, look for a luxury crossover or SUV instead of a coupe or two-seat roadster. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate the power of the test drive. In as few as 30 minutes behind the wheel of a used luxury car, you can tell whether or not it will make a good daily driver. Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
