How Seattle Car Buyers Can Test Drive with Ease

Posted on January 15th, 2014

man_in_car_dealership_giving_car_keys_to_clientDo you know that not all car buyers test drive their chosen vehicles before purchasing them? This is shocking but true: in 2012, Time reported that more than one in ten new-car buyers splurge on the auto purchase without taking the car out for spin. A 2012 Maritz Research survey also reveals that about 11.4 percent of car buyers didn’t take the car on the road before they bought it. The reason consumers don’t bother to test drive the cars is because they hate car salesmen. They would skip the test drive if it means spending less time dealing with the sales staff.

If you are a car buyer who resides in Seattle and would also rather not spend more time with the car salesman, you need not skip the test drive. Thanks to Tred, you can test your chosen vehicle out on the road without having to go to the dealership.
