Need a car next weekend.
Do we hire?
Or do a test drive of an upmarket car for two days?
Testing is cheaper, but you’ll have to deal with the sales pitch, and have less control over the availability of the car.
In the past few weeks I’ve had one test drive cancelled as the previous person didn’t return the car, and one test drive changed since the car I wanted to try wasn’t available.
Last thing you want is a last minute hitch cancelling your ‘test drive’ leaving you without a car at all.
The right thing to do is hire a car for a day.
The garage has to pay for that car and it’s a sales tool, not for people to use as they want.
Frijj makes some good points plus not all manufacturers offer a 24 hour test drive and even if they do they’ll be unhappy if you whack loads of miles on it.
The Mercedes 48 hour test drive is for current Mercedes owners only.
That’s a bit carist.
They gave me a brand new S class S350 AMG line as a courtesy car last week. Absolutely loaded with gadgets, but flat as a fart.
I got an A Class the bastards.
Just got a new car Friday though so wasn’t too disheartened.
Sick of hearing about this
Take the day off ffs.
He’s been banging on about its since Christmas!
Longer than that I think.
It’s a C220 AMG line in case I hadn’t mentioned.
Haven't you bored him with tales of your TWO BMWs ?
But you got me a warning yesterday
To tears. And everything else in his boring existence.
I won’t repeat
When you asked me to lick your mam?
