The test drive is an important step in helping you make an informed car buying decision. To ensure you get the most out of your experience behind the wheel, whether it be the Ford Escape or Ford Focus, our team at Griffin Ford Fort Atkinson has prepared a bit of a tip sheet to keep in mind.

Do Your Research – Take the time to determine your wants and needs in a vehicle. Browse our online inventory to see which models check off all your boxes, then come down to our dealership for a test drive in the vehicles that best meet your needs. We’re also happy to suggest alternatives if needed, and answer any questions.

Visual Inspection – Upon arrival at our Fort Atkinson, WI Ford dealership, take a look at each vehicle you test drive inside and out. Is the color something you like? How does the interior look? Is there enough cargo room and passenger space?

Get Behind The Wheel – When you get inside, make sure you get situated and locate all the necessary controls. One of our Ford sales team members can also go over the standard and available features and infotainment system at this time.

Set Out On The Road – Hitting the road gives you a detailed look at how the vehicle handles. Try to drive in different conditions, such as stop-and-go traffic and residential streets. Is the vehicle easy to handle? How are the accelerator and brake functions? Is it easy to park?

1642 Janesville Avenue in Fort Atkinson, WI is where you will find our local Ford dealership. For more information on taking a test drive, please give our sales department a call at (877) 855-6959.
