Test Driving A Vehicle At Fox CDJR | Auburn, NY

What To Know When Test Driving A Vehicle At Fox CDJR

If you're on the hunt for a new or used vehicle in Auburn, New York, you'll find many quality options to consider - especially if you shop at Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.

Every make and model feels a little different. That's why test drives are such a vital part of the buying process. This guide will help you get the most out of your next test drive at Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.

Narrow down your options

Before you get behind the wheel at our dealership, it's important to prepare first. You don't want to waste your time test-driving cars that you aren't seriously considering buying.

Assess your needs and budget. If you are a parent of a large family, it may be worth narrowing your focus to minivans like the Chrysler Pacifica or Pacifica Hybrid. Do you enjoy adventures off the beaten path? Skip over sedans and opt for an off-roader like the Jeep® Wrangler.

Once you have an idea of which class of vehicle is right for you, it's time to look at your financial situation and decide whether a new or used model is a wiser decision.

Now all that's left is to grab your driver's license, a pad of paper to take notes, proof of insurance, and your phone so you can call (888) 436-9168 to schedule an appointment!

Look inside and out

Take the test drive to assess more than just how the car feels behind the wheel; take time to crawl around in the cabin and look around the exterior.

If you're looking at a pre-owned car, make sure the body and upholstery are in good shape. You should also test out the infotainment tech to get a feel for how it works. Take a moment to adjust the seat, including the headrest and lumbar support, to see if you'd be comfortable riding in it for a long road trip.

Get on the road

Now that it's finally time to drive, make the most of the experience. To get a good feel for how the vehicle performs in different conditions, consider taking a route that includes both city/suburban streets and highways. Also pull over in a parking lot so you can check the braking, turning radius, and swerving. Don't just stick to routes where you'll be sitting at red lights the whole time.

How it all works

At Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram, our first and only priority is to make your car-buying experience is stress-free and convenient. That's why we offer two unique ways to test drive our vehicles.

You can schedule an appointment at our dealership in Auburn, and a member of our sales staff will be more than happy to help you. Plus, we never employ those high-pressure sales tactics you may have run into at other dealerships.

If you prefer a no-contact option, we can actually bring our inventory to you! Our Test Drive at Home service lets you pick out your desired model online, send us an email, and watch your ride roll up in your driveway. After that, simply hop behind the wheel, go for a quick spin, see if you've found a match, and bring the vehicle back to your starting location.

If you're interested in taking a test drive, don't hesitate to contact us at Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram and experience the Fox difference for yourself.

Why Test-Drive a CDJR Vehicle in Auburn, NY

Are you spending a lot to keep your old vehicle running and wondering if it's time for a new one? Have your driving demands changed - is that SUV too big for your empty nest or is the hatchback too small for multiple car seats? Do you need something to tow and haul for work like the capable Ram 1500? No matter your level of car buying interest, you can satisfy it with a test drive at Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram in Auburn, New York.

Why test drives are important

Even if you're at the beginning of your car search or not sure if you want to search for a new vehicle at all, now is an ideal time to come to Fox Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram for a test drive. A test drive doesn't mean you're ready to buy a specific vehicle - it can be a fact-finding mission to help you discover which vehicle is right for you! You can take multiple vehicles out for test drives so you can compare how they feel, how they drive, how they respond, and how the tech works.


Make the most of your test drive

Getting behind the wheel of one or several models that fit your budget is the best way to see what vehicle is the right choice. If pre-owned is your preference, a test drive will also allow you to check out every nook and cranny and evaluate its performance and appearance quality.


Here are just a few of the questions you might want to consider during your test drive.

  • Is the infotainment system easy to use? 
  • Are the seats comfortable? Modern SUVs like the Jeep® Grand Cherokee feature premium materials and leather upgrades for an upscale look and feel.
  • Does the vehicle offer enough space for you and your crew? The Jeep® Compass is a compact SUV with accommodations for five and nimble performance suited for busy cities, suburban neighborhoods, and crowded highways. If you need more room, check out the Dodge Durango, which offers three seats and spots for seven.
  • What about your visibility? You will be riding high above the crowd behind the wheel of the Ram 1500.
  • Is the vehicle fun to drive? Most likely you'll be focusing on tech and comfort, but don't rule out the importance of a good time! If you've always dreamed of driving a high-performance sports car like the Dodge Charger, a test drive is the perfect time to check one out.

At Fox CDJR, you'll find a large inventory of new and pre-owned models. Contact our team to learn more about how to get behind the wheel for a test drive.
