Purchasing a used car can be an unnerving experience but doing your homework ahead of time can help to alleviate some of the anxiety. Prepare for your next test drive at Lindsay Volvo Cars of Alexandria in Alexandria, VA by keeping the following tips in mind.

You should never be shy about asking questions regarding the vehicle’s current condition, fuel mileage, and maintenance record. Be sure to request a vehicle history report if one is not provided, or be prepared to look that information up on your own before making the final decision to buy.

Once your test drive is underway, try to cover residential streets, secondary roads, and full-speed highways to see for yourself how the vehicle drives and handles in an array of different travel conditions. Test out the various gears, and give the brakes a full workout to check out their responsiveness as well.
