If you’ve followed our blog for any length of time, you know that we end nearly every post by inviting you to Keyes Lexus from Los Angeles and the surrounding area for a test drive. There’s a good reason for that. For everything that’s changed in car technology, style, and construction, one thing has remained consistent: the best way to pick the right new luxury car is by getting behind the wheel for a test drive. Here’s how to get the most out of yours.

Why Test Drive?

First, let’s start with why a test drive is absolutely vital. If you’re in the market for a new car, you’ve probably already devoted considerable time to researching makes and models, specifications, and reviews. That’s a good thing, but each of those things will only get you so far. A vehicle like the 2017 Lexus RX 350 might be perfect for you, or might not; the only way to know for sure is to get in and drive. It doesn’t matter if it’s the perfect fit for your neighbor, or if somebody at Edmunds thinks it’s the bee’s knees. If it’s not right for you, it’s not right, period.

What You’ll Need for Your Test Drive

Start by narrowing down your top two or three new or certified pre-owned Lexus vehicles. Next, think about the kinds of features you’d like. They’ll help in choosing a trim level. Think about some other things that your research may not have covered, like your driving habits and your budget. Gather any questions you may have, make sure you’ve got your license and insurance handy, and come to 5905 Van Nuys Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA (that’s the Keyes Lexus showroom). We’ll help you find the perfect fit.

Ideally, you find the luxury car you’ve always wanted. Maybe you take a test drive and find out that the vehicle you had your heart set on isn’t quite right for you. We’ll work with your needs and your budget to help you find something better. After all, it’s what we’ve done for thousands of drivers in the Los Angeles area over the years.
