Additionally, we want you to make the most of your test drive at Holman GO, we have compiled a few helpful tips.

Ensure Your Comfort

When you purchase a pre-owned car from Holman GO, you are ensured quality through our certification process. This enables you to turn your attention to your overall driving experience while you are testing out a vehicle. As you cruise around in the car, pay attention to how confident and in control you feel. Things like large blind spots or a narrow rear window could make some drivers uncomfortable.

Think About Your Everyday Needs

As you drive around in a few cars, it is easy to get caught up in the moment and to overlook the importance of your everyday driving experience. Anticipate your practical experiences in the car. For example, if you have young children, is there ample space for car seats? Would the car accommodate your needs for groceries, regular recreational activities, your dog and more?

Drive Normally

When many drivers get behind the wheel of a car that they do not yet own, they understandably drive it timidly. You may feel pressure to exhibit your best driving skills when a salesperson is sitting next to you, but this may not be how you actually drive on a daily basis. When you test drive the car, ensure that it has the rapid acceleration and stopping capabilities that you need. Take it into a busy parking lot to see how maneuverable it is to park. If possible, drive it in various weather conditions before you finalize your buying decision.

Our Holman GO team is truly committed to helping you make a vehicle selection that you can appreciate for many years to come. We know that our valued customers do not want to feel limited when making this important decision, so we actively maintain a large and diverse inventory. If you are ready to view the options and to take a few of your top choices out for a test drive, stop by today.
