Driving Performance: What to Watch Out for When Buying a Used Auto

used cars trucks suvs in vancouver bcWhen purchasing a used car, truck or SUV, you want to be sure that the vehicle checks the boxes on a number of items, like mileage, condition, price and features. But, another important factor to remember is driving performance.
 
But, what is driving performance? Well, for most people, it means how the vehicle handles on the road – how it accelerates and stops, as well as how it feels. But, there are a few other factors to keep in mind when assessing a used car or truck’s driving performance. 
 
Here’s a rundown of what to watch out for:
 
Acceleration: 
Does the used auto have enough get-up-and-go for you? 
Does it have too much power? 
Does the car lurch from a dead stop? 
 
Shifting: 
Does the used auto upshift and downshift smoothly? 
Does the shifting happen at the right time?
 
Steering:
Is the steering sensitive to touch and responsive? 
Do you notice a lag when you turn? 
Does the steering wheel pull to one side? 
Do you feel any vibration at slow or high speeds? 
 
Gauges: 
Are all of the gauges moving while you’re driving? 
Are the gauges functioning properly?
Are the gauges accurate?
 
Noises: 
Is the used auto making any troubling noises?
Does the car or truck make any strange noises at acceleration?
 
Brakes: 
Does the used car or truck have anti-lock brakes? 
Are they working properly? 
Are the brakes responsive enough?
Does the car or truck make any strange noises when braking?
 
Suspension: 
When you drive over bumps or uneven surfaces, how does the car or truck react? 
Is the ride quality smooth or too rough?
 
During your test drive, if you notice any issues with the vehicle’s driving performance, that might be an indication that the used car or truck isn’t a good fit for you. After all, you don’t want to settle for a vehicle that can’t keep up with you or may be too powerful for your needs.
 
To learn more about driving performance and the characteristics to watch out for, stop by our dealership in New Westminster, B.C. We’ll help you find the right kind of used car or truck to suit your exact needs and budget.
