Test driving a vehicle before purchasing or leasing it is a vital part of the vehicle shopping process, and Clayton Motors Inc. wants to ensure you get the most out of this step. While some shoppers skip this point in the shopping process, there are several major benefits of not skipping it. To help you prepare for your next test drive at our Volvo dealership in Knoxville, we are happily providing the following tips and tricks to keep in mind while you're feeling out your potential investment.

Know What a Test Drive Is

Test driving a car or SUV at Clayton Motors Inc. will give you a better idea of whether the vehicle you're driving is the right fit for you. While reading reviews and specs is also helpful, test driving gives you a real-world feel of the vehicle you're considering. By testing out your future car or SUV, you can avoid a costly mistake of purchasing or leasing the incorrect model.

Know When Your Opinion Matters and When to Listen to the Experts

While online reviews by automotive experts help determine facts about a vehicle that can't be identified during a test drive, it's also just as crucial for you to express your preferences on things like features and performance. That's why test driving is essential; it allows you to get a better feel and closer look at what features are on the car or SUV before you make your decision.

Drive it Like You Own It

When you test-drive a vehicle, you should drive it as if you're already the owner. Think of your everyday commute and then see if the vehicle you're testing out meets your daily needs and preferences.


When you visit Clayton Motors Inc., you can count on a stress-free environment, and a hassle-free test-drive. So, come to our dealership today to test drive a new Volvo model or quality pre-owned vehicle that catches your attention.
