As your Mazda car dealers serving the greater Mansfield, OH, we’re here to offer the advice and car-related expertise that our customers may need. When it comes to taking a test drive in particular, you may think the process is straightforward, but we have some insider information that we think might help you.

Believe it or not, a huge part of taking a test drive is preparation and planning. You’ll want to plan to test drive a vehicle on a day when your schedule is clear and the weather is nice, so you won’t have to worry about being on a time crunch or bad weather conditions.

Additionally, since you are able to view our entire inventory online, you can come knowing which models you want to look at specifically. Another good aspect of preparation is bringing something to take photos or notes, if you so choose. That way, you can compare and contrast your top choices later if you’re having trouble making the decision.

When you jump into a Mazda6 or Mazda CX-3 to test drive, first you’ll want to get comfortable and familiar. Adjust your seat and mirrors, scope out any potential blind spots, and discover the various driving and specialty features. This is the perfect time to ask questions and let our professional salespeople show you the highlights of the particular model.

When driving, hit the highway if possible, drive on residential streets, and test out the cruise control and other driving features. It’s important to try to mimic your day-to-day driving routes to ensure the vehicle performs to your standards. Make sure you pay special attention to the way the vehicle accelerates and brakes, as well as the feel of the car in general. Comfort is essential for everyday transportation.
