Checklist for Your Test Drive

When you test drive a vehicle, our Honda car dealers recommend taking note of several aspects of the vehicle during the process. It’s important to get an accurate feel for how the vehicle handles at various speeds and in a variety of road conditions. We also recommend paying attention to the following:

  • Powertrains: The engine, transmission, and drivetrain are the groundwork of any vehicle. Make sure to check out how fast the Honda car accelerates and how easy it is to shift between gears. Try to gauge how powerful the car is, as well. Horsepower is especially key if you plan to tow heavy cargo.
  • Special Features: Not every Honda model comes standard with all of our great safety and convenience features. That's why it's a good idea to test out any available features in the car you're driving. If you find one you really like, our Honda dealers can probably offer an upgraded package to ensure you get it.
  • Comfort: You’re probably going to drive your new Honda vehicle every day, so it's important to pick out a model that has a comfortable interior. If you have a big family or tend to carry lots of sports gear or bulky cargo, make sure that the model you're test driving has plenty of storage space or split-folding rear seats.
