How many times have you purchased something based on pictures online, only to get it and you realize it isn’t right for you? When you are shopping for a new Mazda car, you simply cannot shop based on photos alone. You will want to get behind the wheel to take a test drive so you can be sure that you have all of the features you want while feeling comfortable with your new ride. Our staff at Sames Mazda wants to tell you some of the things that you should look for when taking a vehicle out for a test drive.

Research – Doing your research is key, so take a look at some of the Mazda models that interest you most. Do you like the safety technology on a Mazda CX-5 or are you interested in the drivability of a Mazda MX-5 Miata?

At First Glance – Take a look at each car you want to test drive – inside and out. Is the color something you like in person? Is there enough cargo space or is it going to be easy to get your child’s safety seat installed?

Behind The Wheel – Take note of the feeling you get behind the wheel. Are you comfortable and is it easy enough to locate and reach all of the controls?

On The Road – Check out the acceleration and see how the vehicle handles and steers as you pick up speed. You should also make your way through some stop-and-go traffic to see how the braking it is and whether or not the vehicle maneuvers the way you like it.

Our staff at Sames Mazda would love to talk with you about what you want to get out of your test drive. Stop by to see us today at 6001 San Dario Avenue in lovely Laredo, TX or call us in the sales department to set up an appointment for your test drive at (888) 415-6543.
