At FIAT of Fresno, we put a lot of effort into helping you find and buy or lease the right car, whether you’re buying or leasing a new FIAT car. Our goal is to keep the car-buying process as painless as possible from start to finish, but there are some things you can do too to ensure everything goes smoothly. Here’s how you can prepare for the all-important test drive. 

Do Your Homework

A little research goes a long way. If you show up at your Fresno FIAT dealership well-prepared, we’re better able to help you. Jot down the following:

  • Which model you’d like
  • Any options you’d like it to have, and/or a specific trim
  • The things you must have, whether they’re concrete items like an infotainment system or intangibles like a strong sense of style
  • Any questions or special requests you may have

“Pack” for Your Trip

There are some things you’ll want to bring in addition to your notes. You’ll need proof of insurance and your license for the test drive. You’ll also want to have your old car’s title and manual if you’re planning on trading in. And if you’ll be applying for FIAT financing, bring your financials and proof of employment. Not sure what you need? Call us and we’ll walk you through it.

Time to Drive!

Take the time to put your new car through its paces. Try the devices and gadgets. Make sure the seats are comfy. Make sure things like the brakes, acceleration, and handling are the right fit for your driving style. Be as thorough as you need, and ask plenty of questions. It’s what we’re here for!

It may take a couple of tries to find the right vehicle. In fact, it should, since you’ll be spending a lot of time behind the wheel and we want you to be as comfortable and happy as possible. To arrange your test drive, visit FIAT of Fresno at 6150 N Blackstone Ave today.
