While there are plenty of things to consider when it comes time to purchase your next vehicle, the test drive is a vital step in the car-buying process. Auto shoppers at the Sisbarro Truck Store have no reason to worry, however, as our team has plenty of simple tips for test driving the exceptional used trucks for sale at our Southern NM Truck Headquarters.

Do Your Research & Make A List

As Southern New Mexico’s largest pre-owned truck dealer, Sisbarro Truck Store in Las Cruces is the perfect destination if you’ve decided you gotta get a truck! From big to small we’ve got them all but with so many used trucks to choose from, it’s a smart idea to do some preliminary research before visiting. Set a benchmark for how much you’d like to spend, read up on brand and model reviews, and keep it all compiled in a list of vehicles you’d like to test drive to relieve the pressure and tailor the car buying experience to your unique needs.

Schedule A Test Drive

Once you’ve narrowed down your used truck search to top models, the next step is to schedule a test drive appointment. This is typically best to set up before visiting the dealership but never fear if you can’t make it out to the Sisbarro Truck Store in person. The team at our Las Cruces used truck dealer understands the importance of a test drive and would be more than happy to bring the test drive directly to you to better accommodate your needs and busy schedule!


Pay Attention To How It Drives

When you’re ready to get behind the wheel take a moment to perform a quick pre-test inspection. If everything on the exterior looks good, climb inside and evaluate visibility and comfort before setting off. Take the car for a spin over terrain that best matches your daily driving requirements. For example, if you’re planning to use it for work it’s a good idea to drive over rocky or challenging areas to ensure the truck meets your job requirements. Don’t forget to turn the radio off and pay close attention to the performance and handling to determine which used truck is right for you.
