What to Look For When Test Driving a Used INFINITI?

Before You Take a Test Drive

Buying a used car can be stressful, which is why so many people shop at the South Motors INFINITI used car dealership in Miami. Our goal is to help our customers know what to look for when buying a used car. We feel it’s important when buying a used car to have a checklist, so you don’t get caught up in an emotional purchase that you later regret.

Buying a Used Car Checklist

Before you take any used car for a test drive, it’s a good idea to do research. We highly recommend researching your favorite makes and models to determine which years offer the most reliability and dependability. We also recommend reading reviews from people who have purchased the car you want.

After selecting a vehicle, the next step is to see it in person. Look closely at the car from all angles looking for wear and tear. Check the tires for tread depth. Open the truck to look for rust. Sit in the cabin to determine if you’re comfortable. Look at the engine compartment. If you like what you see, the next step is to test drive it around Miami, FL.

We recommend that you drive the car to see if everything works properly. While driving, run the air conditioning, check the warning lights, and drive the vehicle in several places:

  • A busy street with several traffic lights to evaluate acceleration and braking.
  • A highway with curves to drive over 55 MPH.
  • A quiet street to listen to the engine and components.
  • A parking lot to determine if you can park it successfully.

What to Look for on the CARFAX Report

Before purchasing any used vehicle, we think it’s a good idea to do a thorough reading of its CARFAX report using the vehicle identification number. These reports share detailed vehicle history reports, from routine oil changes to major collision repairs. If the car you are considering does not have maintenance records, you might want to consider a different vehicle for your peace of mind.

At South Motors INFINITI, we include vehicle history reports on the vehicles that have come to our service center. If you are buying from a private party, the vehicle might not have a history report because the private sellers didn’t use a dealership.
