According to a recent poll, “more than 10 percent of the 80,219 car buyers surveyed didn’t take a test drive before they purchased.” 1 The article goes on to say that many buyer’s are buying the same model and don’t think the test drive is necessary. I’ve experienced this with a variety of men and women who have bought cars from me. They insist that the test drive is not necessary. But I have always insisted that they drive the car because I don’t want any surprises after the sale. Make sure you like the comfort of the seats, the ride, the steering, the layout of the controls, etc. But still some don’t see the need and just drive up the street a block and still buy the car. It does make my job easier, but is it something you would do? Why or why not?
